Coir Rolls

A week the bank restoration team did not want, heavy rain and and lots of it.
The clay has been moved to behind the right bank and now the next step is the addition of the coir rolls. The rolls, having been placed on top of the faggots, are made of processed coconut husk fibres that have been hydraulically pressed into coir net bags and tied. The coir is, not only, a completely biodegradable product but also qualifies as a recycled material. The rolls being used have come planted with fully established marginal plants and are an excellent means of establishing marginal vegetation around lake edges.
