Naturalisation of Flood Remediation Earth Banks For Scour Protection & Bank Stabilisation
Hydroseeding flood defence channels
TerrAffix were asked to seed an area prior to the installation of biodegradable Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECP).
A walk over ecological survey was undertaken prior to commencement, to identify the best species mix for the site, considering soil type, soil acidity and available plant nutrients.
The mulch applied was TerrAffix Hydramulch, to provide immediate stabilisation and prevent any movement of material in the event of a bad weather event.
The main areas of focus were
- Preventing scour
- Low organic matter
- Poor soil stability
- Hydroseeding over Erosion Control Blankets
There were significant benefits to the client
- Significant carbon saving
- Financial savings
- Quick application
- Rapid vegetation establishment
- Root stability in 6 months
- No top soil brought on site, reducing risk and cost
