|24" high sand fencing had been successful in stabilizing |
and collectingsand on small scale, Bayside restoration projects.
|We randomly inserted the single slats into the sand, spacing them 8-10" apart|

|Once we had restored enough geomass profile to thwart over-wash, |

increased by 12 feet in a period of 14 months
