Geotextile Tubes & Sand Bag Erosion Control

LAKESHORE SERVICES

Geotextile Tubes and sandbags installed on the toe of the dune and revetted to protect dune and slumpage of the dune.

BENEFITS

This revetment allows protection to the toe of the dune so that it can be restored back to the angle of reposition. The main point of this revetment is to protect the homeowners house and property. This allows for certain restoration and construction on the dune. 

Unsupported sand dune with vegetation erosion

HAZARD IF NOT APPLIED

If a revetment is not installed and the dune remains vulnerable to the Lake Michigan storms, water and waves will erode the toe. This will eventually work itself up to the top of the dune and will cause severe damage to the property.

Finish

First meet with the client and discuss with the client what the best revetment would be for the property.

Prepare an estimate for the client.

Once the estimate is accepted, we will prepare the materials that will be needed and collect a 50% down payment.

Once we decide on a start date, we will gather all of the materials and equipment needed to bring down to the jobsite. Once all the materials and equipment are on site, we will prepare the toe of the dune where the revetment will be in place.

Revetment is then installed. Once the project is completed, we will send out an invoice to collect the remainder of the payment owed.
