Gardenside Park

Streambank Stabilization

The Lexington Fayette Urban County Government (LFUCG) Division of Engineering was looking for a cost effective, green and minimally invasive technique for armoring a streambank. A four foot drop below a walking path in Gardenside Park was created by the erosive force of Wolf Run creek. As a demonstration project the four foot bank of exposed soil was protected by a compost-based, Living Wall™, bioengineered system.
