Those of us who are lakeshore owners can have a direct and dramatic impact on our lakes. Erosion is one of the biggest concerns for the health of the lake and also a major concern for property owners. Consider the videos below and Take Action in the way or ways with which you’re most comfortable. Lakeshore owners receive the greatest benefits from a clean lake so let’s take the greatest responsibility.
- Restore Your Shore with Native Plants.
Native plants and the roots that ground them are excellent filters for runoff and shore water.
- Stabilize your shore with Erosion Control Fabric
Erosion control fabric helps keep your shoreline in place and provides an excellent short term anchor for plants to take root.
- Install a Soil Wrap Slope Break
A Soil Wrap combines the benefits of fabric and native plants for a one-two punch of effectiveness.
- Restore Your Shore with Coir Logs
Coir Logs are more sturdy and longer term than erosion control fabric and can work below the water line to provide a good anchor for plants to take root.
- Stabilize Your Shoreline with Live Fascines
When a more engineered solution is needed to control erosion a live fascine can make a stable and dramatic impact and protect your property.
