Living shorelines are a shoreline management practice that provides erosion control benefits; protects, restores, or enhances natural shoreline habitat; and maintains coastal processes through the strategic placement of plants, stone, sand fill, and other structural organic materials (e.g. biologs, oyster reefs, etc.). Living shorelines can reduce wave damage to the coast and inland structures by creating a solution that incorporates segmented breakwaters and plantings along the shoreline.
