Parsons and Sons can create hurdles for use in restoring river banks and as erosion protection for land or gardens that back onto rivers. This process is also known as Willow Spilling and the fence like construction forms a barrier between the river bank and the water.
Land can be lost at an alarming rate due to riverbank erosion, and conservation is key. But by building a barrier erosion can be completely stopped. Riverbank restoration also work the other way by protecting the waterway from collapsing banks. Willow spilling is also very natural looking and creates a new habitat for wildlife to live in.
River restoration in this manner allows silty material to build up around the barrier creating a new place for vegetaion to grow strengthening the riverbank. Vegetation is an important part of a riverbank's eco system. It stabilises the banks by using it's roots to hold on to bank material, keeping it together and making erosion harder.
River bank restoration in this fashion will last forever, especially if the willow is alive. This gives the native river bank growth a chance to build up again and prevents erosion and pollution of the waterway.
