Case Study Overview

Project: Three Rings Ranch
Location: Beaumont, CA, United States
Project Type: Shoreline Reinforcement
Application: Creek Bank Protection
Product Used: PYRAMAT® and LANDLOK®

Photo showing need for protection of the Mashall Creek banks before heavy rains began.

Problem

The owner of this development wanted to protect the banks of Marshall Creek before the heavy rains began. They knew that bank protection was required and the cost of traditional methods was too much.

Solution

The design for this project was rock riprap buried at the toe to a depth of 5 feet below the ground surface and 3 feet up the bank. PYRAMAT® High Performance Turf Reinforcement Mat was placed the remainder of the way up the bank to the top of the slop and was vegetated with native seed. LANDLOK® 450 Turf Reinforcement Mat was placed in a side tributary channel to Marshall Creek. PYRAMAT® provided the scour and erosion resistant benefits of hard armor with the aesthetic and water quality benefits of vegetation.

Performance

Brookfield Land Development, INC., is especially happy with the $150,000 cost savings of using PYRAMAT® on the slope and the added aesthetic value to their development with the incorporation of native vegetation.
