Let's go!

Erosion Control Blankets and Rolls, Brushwood Faggots, Gabion Baskets, Turf Reinforcement Mats (TRM's), Soil Containment Systems, Nicospan Vertical Bank Protection also available.

Erosion Control Blankets & Turf Reinforcement Mats

Erosion Control Blankets: Coir blankets are available in several grades, from lightweight (and low cost) to heavy duty.
Turf Reinforcement Mats: Permanent mats incorporated into grass swards.

Coir Rolls & Coir Pallets

Coir rolls and pallets are an excellent means of establishing marginal vegetation around natural lake edges, artificially-lined lakes and on stream, river and canal banks. Both constitute cost-effective organic alternatives to hard revetments.

Brushwood Faggots

An excellent organic revetment for lake edges, streams and river banks.

Nicospan Bank Stabilisation/Protection

A light and flexible barrier for use in small watercourses or bodies of water to stabilise banks and subsequently protect them.

Rock Rolls

Erosion control and bank restoration.

Floating Islands

Consisting of a modular unit system supporting a pre-planted coir pallet, the islands are easy to install in lakes, reservoirs and ponds to create an instant habitat or refuge for small mammals, such as water voles, birds, amphibians, invertebrates and fish.

Reed Beds

Reed bed filter systems for water conservation.

Case Studies

The following projects involved Erosion Control

Ferry Meadows

Ferry Meadows

Lake banks had been washed and eroded leaving boulder stones with little vegetation or habitat. Pre-established coir pallets grown in the Water-Lines Nursery were installed with grazing protection.

Alkborough Tidal Defence Scheme

Alkborough Tidal Defence Scheme

The Environment Agency had determined that there were flood defence benefits by the creation of a flood storage area at Alkborough, N. Lincs to allow water from the tidal River Trent and Humber Estuary to flood onto the Flats during extreme events, thereby reducing tidal levels in the river and estuary.

Welney Wash

Welney Wash

Welney Wash, the United Kingdoms largest man-made flood storage area, was originally constructed by the Dutch engineer Sir Cornelius Vermuyden during the 1630s.

Wells next the Sea

Wells next the Sea

The Environment Agency completed the £1.1 million Wells and Burnham Overy Staithe Tidal Defence Scheme in 2001. Much of the work involved the installation of 12,000 m² of Armorflex concrete revetment blocks on the Wells West Bank, which runs from the north of the town to the Lifeboat Station.

Sovereign Harbour

Sovereign Harbour

Sovereign Harbour is a £40m development transforming 14ha. of old gravel pits into an outer tidal harbour with locks into a constant depth inner harbour. The complete facility provides berths for 650 craft, a hotel, various leisure and retail outlets, together with a prestigious housing development.
