Document Description
The project involves restoring the creek by laying back the most severely eroded bank, and creating inset floodplains on the inside meanders. The banks will be stabilized with coir blankets and dense sedge and rush plug plantings referred to as a "sedge mattress". The bank repair at the county road will require rock toe protection. Willow stakes will be planted through the joints of the rock. A habitat friendly crossing will be designed using an arch pipe, arch culvert or an oversized embedded pipe. Native trees and shrubs will be planted in groupings to create habitat clusters for wildlife and bird habitat along the stream corridor. In between the clusters the banks will be planted with perennial grasses, sedges and rushes. This planting strategy allows the landowner to manage his pastures with planned view corridors while creating multiple ecotone habitats between the riparian cluster and native grasslands.
