Glen Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in North America and it is surrounded by the Sleeping Bear National Park. This particular parcel was situated to give the owners a unobstructed view of the Dune Climb in the distance.
The customer first contacted Inhabitect because they had been experiencing significant loss of land and after previous attempts to protect the shoreline failed. These issues where due to wave action, ice push and erosion.
The bioengineering portion of the project used biodegradable erosion blankets, regionally sourced stone, it was planted with 100% natives, that were installed within the water and throughout the varying microclimates and growth zones on this parcel. We worked closely with the owner to ensure the character of their lakefront was preserved while also being reinforced.
