Living Shorelines for the Chesapeake Bay Watershed

Living shoreline guidelines.

Living Shorelines are a creative and proven approach to protecting tidal shorelines from erosion. The technique consists of planting native wetland plants and grasses, shrubs and trees at various points along the tidal water line. Plantings often are coordinated with carefully-placed bioengineering materials, such as manmade coconut-fiber rolls (or biologs) to protect vegetation and soils. Where viable, oysters can be included as well.  Projects may include stone elements, as long as they do not restrict access to the shore.
