Naturalisation of Flood Remediation Banks For Scour Protection & Bank Stabilisation
A solution for Hydroseeding through reinforced matting.
TerrAffix were asked to provide a solution for the vegetation of flood defence bunds and channel sides following the laying of 30,000m2 of reinforced coir blanket incorporating a double plastic net to prevent scouring.
The Erosion Control Blankets were laid to address poor soil stability on the site. The main aim of the client was to prevent scour and promote biodiversity and ecological resilience.
Further to an ecological survey we identified the most appropriate mixture of species, including, grasses and herbs appropriate for the ground conditions evident on-site.
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
