A New Line of Defense for Shoreline Protection and Bank Stabilization
Vegetated EcoShield® is a living shoreline product that compliments flood protection by reducing wave energies and extending the life of shorelines, levee systems, berms, and terraces. It is lightweight, easy to install, and requires minimal maintenance.
RESEARCHED AND FIELD TESTED
Research conducted by LSU demonstrated that one layer of EcoShield® reduced wave run up by 40% and LiDAR confirmed that vegetation nearly doubled within 1 year, suggesting deep rooted plants.
A smooth surface ensures that base matrix layers will provide maximum protection without bumps and gaps.
Determining the correct number of base matrix layers for the energy environment ensures the appropriate amount of protective coverage from wave energies.
The Water Institute of the Gulf Endorsement
In 2015, Vegetated EcoShield® received the endorsement of The Water Institute of the Gulf, as an innovative technology for Shoreline Protection and Bank Stabilization.
