Major landslip is transformed

Newly installed willow spiling
Our client had suffered a serious flood on his land which had caused a major landslip.  The aim of our work was to provide toe protection within the brook and reform and restabilise the slope.

This was a major project that involved regrading the bank and soil nailing at the top of the bank.  Silt was retained using Sedimat matting installed in the stream bed at the first riffle downstream.  We were able to remove the Sedimat and leave it to decompose, on completion of stone rip-rap and removal of the landslip material.
