Featured Project

Project: North Shields Pond
Location: Fort Collins, CO
Client: City of Fort Collins Natural Areas
Date: 10/2016

 

 
Challenge:
It was proving difficult to establish wetland plants on site due hydrology issues including high spring flows; and waterfowl depredation with newly planted plugs.

 

Solution:
Over the course of 2015 and 2016, over 150 Wetland Sod Mats were installed and 2,000 plugs (2015) within the 32 acres of Wetlands. The Wetland Sod helped naturally contour the river banks to promote river connection to the floodplain. Heavy waterfowl use could feed on the Wetland Sod's plugs, while leaving the root system intact.
