Preplanted Coir Rolls at Wisley Golf Course, preventing erosion on the river bank

Years of erosion on a river bank by Wisley Golf Course had resulted in vertical unstable banks, these were both unsightly and caused a health and safety issue.

Working with Global Golf Builders we regraded the river banks, added in Coir Rolls and Coir Pallets and hydroseeded the soil.

Local stone was strategically sited in areas identified by the fisheries officer to enhance opportunities for the spawning of fish in the River Wey, which is, at times, a fast flowing river.

This methodology stabilised the banks quickly, the natural erosion control afforded by the Coir products and planting has not only withstood a significant flood event but also look beautiful.
