Let's go!


Yelvertoft Marina, Northampton.

Project Objective

Erosion control to newly built marina banks and compensatory habitat.


Supply and installation of pre-established coir rolls and coir pallets to the newly formed banks of the 200 berth marina.

The coir rolls and coir pallets contained a mixture of native riparian plant species that were endemic to the adjoining canal. These plants both provided erosion control to the vulnerable newly cut banks as well as a pleasing aesthetic view.

Products involved

  • 650 lin. m of pre-established coir rolls
  • 250 m² of pre-established coir pallets.


Well established marina banks.


Long term protection from erosion and creation of beneficial habitat.
