In past projects, the SWCD has found that shoreline protection utilizing natural, biodegradable coir logs
and fiber matting coupled with native vegetation can actually cost less than “rip-rapping” an erosion prone shore – by as much as 25%. Furthermore, after widespread ice damage in recent winters, we’ve seen
re-vegetated shorelines with properly installed, vegetated coir logs out-perform Rip-Rap, with little to no movement or damage and full protection of previously threatened or failing shoreline.
