Living Shorelines - Natural Alternatives

Sandy living shoreline

“A protected and stabilized shoreline that is made of natural materials such as plants, sand, or rock.” National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration 2021

Many on EcoSolutions staff grew up in coastal Alabama, enjoying all the cultural and ecological amenities our bays have to offer. We want to see this rich intertidal habitat saved for future generations. We will work with you to find the best solution to protect your shoreline while preserving the ecological integrity of the bay.
