Riparian RestorationSoil Bioengineering

Soil Bioengineering is a method of using live plants, such as cut, unrooted branches, as the main structural component in a landscaping project. These plant materials are placed in trenches in such a manner that they serve as erosion and sedimentation controlling devices. They grow and assist in land stabilization and naturalization of a project site.

Plant life growing naturally in the banks of rivers, streams, lakes and similar water systems is known as riparian vegetation. Healthy riparian systems are essential to the natural environment. Loss of soil and plant life that occurs adjacent to water systems not only threatens public and private property, but directly impacts water quality and the health of fish and wildlife. Moore's Landscaping can successfully restore such natural resources with exacting methods of soil stabilization and streambank revegetation. When properly executed, such projects can stabilize natural stream flow and greatly moderate the effects of stormwater runoff and extreme water level fluctuations. Special techniques, along with biodegradable products, are applied according to the unique needs of each particular project.
