Salix were involved the supply and install of coir rolls and rock rolls for intertidal habitat at Riverside Gardens, Greenwich. The opportunity arose from a new housing development.
Salix were involved in a recent river diversion on the River Beam in Hertfordshire, to improve hydromophological and ecological function.
Salix were principle contractors on the fantastic River Nairn Project
This video tells the story of the river restoration project at the Aberarder Estate on the River Nairn,
Salix proposed a river enhancement design with the main aim of increasing base flow, reducing low flows and narrowing the channel using vegetated wet berms of varying widths, locally sourced coarse wood deﬂectors and vegetation to be used both marginally and within the channel itself.
Eight years on and vegetative erosion control is a massive success on the River Cleddau as an alternative to blockstone.
Staff at Exeter Flood Defence Project were delighted when within a few weeks mullet were feeding at the base of the erosion control Rock Mattresses.
The Environment Agency commissioned our erosion products on the tidal River Crouch. Inter tidal rivers are notably difficult to manage, our Rock Mattresses, Rock Rolls and Brushwood Fascines have been proven in the toughest of environments.
Rock Rolls and pre-planted Coir Rolls & Pallets were used to prevent erosion whilst creating a lovely habitat in Sheffield City centre where a culverted stream had been flash flooding
Salix’s Rock Mattresses, Coir Rolls & Coir Pallets are being used on the Exeter FAS Scheme enhancing wildlife habitats whilst giving cost effective erosion control.
Rock Rolls and VMax C350 provide ecological erosion control at Yeovil Junction, protecting the railway from undercutting by the River Yoe
VMax C350 & Eronet are used on this hydro project to protect the inlet channel and surrounding soils from erosion, working with nature for natural solutions
Contractors, Consultants and Researchers are praising our Rock Rolls and Rock Mattresses for their proven ability to offer sustainable cost effective solutions to more traditional hard engineering such as concrete, rip rap, gabions and blockstone.
Bridging the ecological and engineering gap with our effective bio-engineering solutions
Our Technical Director, David Holland, has been in the most recent edition of CIWEM’sThe Environment Magazine talking about the value of our 3D reinforced turf mats in erosion control.
Innovative spider machine helps restore wildlife habitats on the River Washburn. Yorkshire Water’s trial works to improve the quality of the river environment downstream of Swinsty reservoir is now well underway.
Tensar VMax P550 is designed for use as erosion control on steep slopes, high-flow channels, spillways, and shorelines.
With funding from the Welsh Government’s Nature Fund, we supported Rhondda Cynon Taf Council in taking steps to naturalise one of the concrete channels which brings water down from the mountains at Cwmparc,
Working with the Norfolk Rivers Trust and cbec, Salix has just completed a project to help to improve wildlife habitats on a section of the chalk River Nar in west Norfolk.
With the help of Salix, the Norfolk Rivers Trust is improving fish and other river wildlife habitats on the River Babingley near Flitcham, one of only two hundred chalk rivers left in the world.
As part of a series of measures to protect the freshwater habitats at Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve on the north Norfolk coast,
The River Washford runs through the village of Roadwater near Minehead, Somerset. The catchment creates a flashy river which floods parts of the village in large flood events.
Tenth Anniversary of Salix’s Project on The River Dulais, Rhosmaen, Llandeilo.
Salix’s River Dulais project demonstrating the use of large woody debris (LWD) is now ten years old and we are delighted to announce that this ground breaking project has been included in the River Restoration Centre (RRC) Manual of Techniques.
Salix have extensive experience of spillway protection offering advice to engineers involved in this area of expertise.
Our VMax range of Composite Turf Reinforcement Mats (CTRMs) including VMax C350,
The saying “a picture paints a thousand words” could not be more accurately applied than to a current Salix erosion control solution at the University of Birmingham.
Client – Environment Agency
Pilot scheme for catchment restoration of the River Ecclesbourne, that forms part of the Water Framework Directive aim to return rivers to good ecological status.
