Problem

Mar Bella is a 531 acre community near Galveston Bay boasting 40 acres of lakes and ponds. Despite a shoreline retaining wall, one of the community ponds was losing shoreline due to erosion from persistent wind-generated waves. This loss of shoreline meant property loss for homeowners.

Solution

Mar Bella's consulting engineer approached Propex for a permanent and cost effective solution. ARMORMAX® 75 Engineered Earth Armoring Solution™ was chosen because it offered a lower cost solution than traditional hard armoring solutions and yielded a vegetated outcome that is more aesthetically pleasing than rock rip rap.
