Habitat Landscape utilized "Bio-Engineering" methods to stabilize 180' of shoreline on Walloon Lake. Severe erosion due to waves and ice undercut the steep banks and threatened to undermine trees and buildings. The shoreline was stabilized by filling cavities with stone and gravel, installing coir logs (tightly bundled coconut fiber) directly against the shoreline, and then building a gently-sloped stone rip-rap revetment extending from the coir logs into the lake. Existing vegetation was enhanced with native plantings to provide long-term shoreline stability via deep root structures.
