Abstract:

Marsh plants are effective in stabilizing eroding banks in many sheltered coastal areas. Exceptional results have been achieved in a variety of intertidal environments at a fraction of the cost required for comparable structural protection. Techniques are available for the efficient propagation of several marsh plants for use in bank stabilization. This report provides guidelines for a selecting plants and planting methods, b determining seed application rate and plant spacing, c determining fertilization requirements, and d estimating labor for planting on a project-by-project basis.
