Shoreline Restoration - Project Summary

August 15, 2017

Project Description:

Homeowner had some erosion along their shoreline, and needed to have this area fixed and cleaned up.  Boulders were brought in to build a retaining wall, complete with a clay loam base and heavy felt fabric.  The area also had trees and debris that needed to be removed, and the area excavated to a finished grade.  Once the shoreline was complete, we restored the lawn with pulverized black dirt, applied our custom seed, and a fertilizer mix.
