In collaboration with the client and Ramsey County Soil & Water Conservation District and Capitol Region Watershed District, Light Dark Landscape installed the shoreline erosion control measures and planted appropriate native species on Lake McCarrons in Roseville, MN as part of a cost-share program. The site-preparation involved the installation of coir logs along the highly eroding shoreline including removal of existing invasives and other woody material. We installed live stakes sourced from site as well as a wave break fence and muskrat control. The shoreline was then planted with a series of shoreline and emergent plants to ensure the future success of the eroding site. While there were plans for this project, the uncontrollable variables while working on a busy, overused urban shoreline required on the spot design interventions to ensure proper installation and long-term functioning.
