What You Need to Know About Waterfront Erosion Control
Living on the water is a wonderful experience. You get to witness stunning sunrises and sunsets, you have instant access to the water for boating and fishing, and there is a level of tranquility that comes from living on the water that you can’t find elsewhere.
At the same time, protecting your shoreline from erosion can quickly become a concern. You may have a major problem with erosion if you notice any of the following signs:
- Bare soil exists throughout your shoreline, especially at spots with a higher elevation.
- Your shoreline has receded noticeably over the past few years.
- Exposed roots on trees have become apparent.
- There are large patches of muddy water near your waterline, or muddy streams show up following periods of heavy rainfall.
There are certain ways you can control erosion on your shoreline. For example, you can leave rocks and vegetation that naturally occur along the shoreline and avoid doing construction within 100 feet of the shore.
Unfortunately, these strategies are not always enough to protect your shoreline from significant erosion. In cases like these, structural protections can permanently prevent your shoreline from eroding any further. Adding rip rap or a retaining wall to your shoreline, for example, can keep erosion from getting worse and even add value to your property.
If you need help with erosion control, we can help at Husky Property Maintenance. Contact us today for more information about options for controlling erosion on your property.
In most cases, installing waterfront retaining walls with appropriate drainage solutions makes it far more difficult for seasonal run-off, high water levels, and other conditions to start taking a bite out of your shoreline. We understand that conditions have been challenging in recent years, with seasonal flooding occurring in many areas. We take all that into consideration, along with the conditions at your property, when we provide you with our recommendation for waterfront erosion control.
