Vegetated Ecoshield

A New Line of Defence for Shoreline Protection and Bank Stabilization Vegetated EcoShield® is a living shoreline product that compliments flood protection by reducing wave energies and extending the life of shorelines, levee systems, berms, and terraces. It is lightweight, easy to install, and requires minimal maintenance.

Research conducted by LSU demonstrated that one layer of EcoShield® reduced wave run up by 40% and LiDAR confirmed that vegetation nearly doubled within 1 year, suggesting deep rooted plants.

"EcoShield® served an important role in stabilizing the berm material. If nothing was done, a significant portion of the seaward face of the berm would have been lost to wind and wave action." - Daniel Dehon, Manchac Consulting system


A smooth surface ensures that base matrix layers will provide maximum protection without bumps and gaps.


Determining the correct number of base matrix layers for the energy environment ensures the appropriate amount of protective coverage from wave energies.


Pre-vegetated matrix position strip at mean tide ensures the reduction in erosive waves and access to water to support plant anchoring, growth, and spread.
