Tahoesod™ is an engineered living revetment for stream, wetland, slope, wall, and site stabilization and restoration, propagated into natural substrates.
All seed, plants, and soils used in the development of these products are native and endemic to the project site. No fertilizers are used in the propagation, installation or maintenance of the materials.
The approach may be used to improve and create sustainable engineering designs and provide enhanced habitat and aesthetic qualities to all engineered solutions for your projects.
Tahoesod™ materials have been designed, engineered, and propagated using this approach for stream bank revetments within the active channel, wetland restoration, meadow restoration, as well as a demonstration project for a saltwater estuary suffering from anthropogenic accelerated erosion and loss of habitat.
The following photographs are from a project on Lake Tahoe exhibiting design development thru propagation and implementation as well as pictures of the products performing in-situ as developed by Ziegler Civil Engineering.
This material and engineering approach can be developed site specifically for your projects in marine and freshwater environments in both aquatic and terrestrial applications.
All living Tahoesod™ solutions are, engineered, designed and propagated, based on the site specific location characteristics, engineering design parameters, site conditions, site constraints, native plant, in situ soils, hydraulics, hydrology, climate, and habitat considerations, while considering the required substrate selection, and long term goals of the project and project location.
