Creative Habitat Corp. - bioengineering and bank stabilization

Our approach to bioengineering includes the use of non-synthetic products that are cost effective as well as ecologically beneficial. It is a little known fact that Creative Habitat introduced the use of coconut fiber (coir) based logs, mats, and nursery-grown sod in the US. Products such as the coir log (shown below) offer bank stabilization benefits while providing a natural medium for plants creating habitat for wildlife in a cost effective way.
