Award winning landscaping supplier Green-tech has supplied the materials to stabilise part of a river bank in North Yorkshire. Addis Garden Design, a professional garden design and planting company was commissioned to stabilise a river bank at the bottom of a domestic garden in the village of Brawby, located in the heart of Ryedale.

The client’s garden backed on to a very steep banking, 40m in length, which led down to a fast flowing river.  The bank had started to erode and the client needed to prevent further erosion to the banking and subsequently their garden.

Addis Garden Design worked with the Environment Agency to get the full planning permission that was required for undertaking a project of this nature and scale. In just over two weeks they installed 45 gabions, supplied by Green-tech and filled with 150 tonnes of stone, Trinter mesh, also supplied by Green-tech, was used to form new banking and larger rocks were bought in to form a new beach.

Michael Addis, Addis Garden Design said:

“We choose Green-tech as our main supplier due to their expertise in the use of these products. Jordan our sales advisor was particularly helpful throughout the quoting stage and the prices were very competitive.”
