Planting Techniques

When you review the following planting techniques remember that the descriptions are meant to introduce general slope planting techniques to coastal landowners. As a result, a technique may not be adequately discussed to the level of detail required for your unique property characteristics. It is always advisable to consult additional resources prior to undertaking your site work. Additionally, these and other techniques may be combined with structural/mechanical slope stabilization designs (biotechnical engineering) which are also beyond the scope of this website.

Six General Planting Techniques

The following sections explain each of these techniques in detail:

Seeding (Mixed Species)

Container or Bare Root

Live Staking

Contour Wattling

Brush Layering

Avoidance/Retreat or Biotechnical Solutions


The images above will lead you to these descriptions individually, or you can continue to browse through using the navigation at left or below.
