WHAT IS A
HEALTHY SHORELINE?

Shorelines give us places to relax, fish, swim and experience the water with friends and family. In addition to providing access to the water, healthy shorelines play an important role in water quality, habitat and protection of your real-estate. As a buffer the lakes edge, shorelines have the capacity to filter pollutants and provide structural integrity to protect your property against erosion.


Our shorelines are constantly changing. Forces of nature, such as rain, wind and ice, along with human influence from boat waves, construction, and increased runoff can all contribute to erosion and damage at the water’s edge. The result of these influences are cloudy water, increased algae and loss of land. This reduces your usability (fishing, swimming) and reduces the value of your property.
 


 

When designed properly, healthy shorelines don’t have to look wild and wooly, nor limit your ability to have usable space or take away from areas for swimming, fishing and other 

activities.

We offer the right tools to create a healthy shoreline that will enhance your relaxation and
recreational experience.

HOW DO I PROTECT & 
BEAUTIFY MY SHORELINE?

We Have the Right Solution for You

Without the right tools, protecting your lakefront property can be challenging and costly.  Every shoreline is different, even along the same waterway. Permitting can be confusing and not incorporating the right approach for your site can result in a solution that doesn’t last or causes more damage to the shoreline. 
Whether you are looking for permanent protection or just simply looking to beautify and enhance your lakefront experience, we offer a variety of product solutions for any waterway edge.   When properly designed and installed, natural and blended shorelines are proven to be more resillient than man-made structures and typically cost 30-50% less. We have the tools and connections to make design, permitting and installation easy.

Erosion at the water’s edge is more likely caused by the action of moving water.  This could include wave action, wind, ice, or currents.

Erosion at top of slopes or areas away from the water’s edge are most often a result of stormwater runoff, extreme flooding or removal / decline of vegetation.

Natural shoreline solutions can increase property value by as much as $200/ linear foot in compared to traditional methods
