Description: Technical Aid
Abstract: marsh plants are effective in stabilizing eroding banks in many sheltered coastal areas. Exceptional results have been achieved in a variety of intertidal environments at a fraction of the cost required for comparable structural protection. Techniques are available for the efficient propagation of several marsh plants for use in bank stabilization. This report provides guidelines for (a) selecting plants and planting methods, (b) determining seed application rate and plant spacing, (c) determining fertilization requirements, and (d) estimating labor for planting on a project-by-project basis.
