Natural shorelines provide multiple benefits to our inland lakes. Natural shoreline landscaping and bioengineered erosion control techniques can restore those benefits by reducing runoff, deterring geese, stabilizing soils and improving fish and wildlife habitat while maintaining aesthetically pleasing access to your lake.
