They are able to restore stream banks from harmful impacts that cause them to erode. We use soil bioengineering to stabilize stream banks as part of restoration methods. Soil bioengineering is known as a “soft practice” for erosion control where our professionals utilize soil media mixes to provide nutrients to vegetation. In order to prevent stream bank erosion, it Is necessary to utilize both soft practices and hard practices. Hard practices include infiltrating materials like rocks and logs as a way to slow down the flow of water.
