I patented a method of planting strips of Plastic into soft shorelines to simulate grass.
The “plugs” are 6″ wide by 10 to 15 feet long. They’re folded in half and shoved 1′ to 2′ into the mud.
This leaves two 3′ to 4′ blades sticking up into the water to act as sediment catch and wave damper.
Bayou Backer simulates marsh grass in areas of the Gulf that won't sustain the real thing. For a complete
description visit my website bayoubacker.com. I had two Permits to work in Vermilion Parish, Louisiana
for Testing from the Office of Coastal Management.
I want to replace HDPE 40 mil with a suitable Hemp textile 1/8th 6" wide by 50' to 100' rolls. These would
be cut 10' to 15' long depending on water depth and mud conditions in the wetlands being serviced. Lasting
at least 10 years ( like most hemp ropes do) the "plug" creates habitat and sediment traps along channels,
crumbling shorelines and newly placed spoils to stabilize them.
