Why CRV™ Living Shorelines?

Containment. Reinforcement. Vegetation.

A Natural and Sustainable Approach to Shoreline Retention.

By containing, reinforcing, and vegetating the system, then pinning the whole system in with earth anchors, we create a solid, resilient design that blends into any landscape.

CRV™ Living Shorelines are a soft armor approach to protecting the integrity of where land meets water, to prevent continued erosion, grow native vegetation, and enhance property benefits for stakeholder use. Compared to traditional alternatives including hard structures like steel, wood or vinyl bulkheads, CRV™ Living Shorelines provide more resiliency during surge storm events and less repair because they are a living system, capable of surviving surge events, even Category 5 Hurricanes.

The Soxx are pre-seeded with a native seed mix that quickly grows and succession plantings of plugs are planted directly into the Soxx between holes in the grid for long term protection.
