Bank Stabilisation at Padbury Primary School

He’s a job we completed at Padbury Primary School. The goal was to stabilise the embankment to minimise erosion.

We used large logs and 50x50x750mm Jarrah stakes to hold them down. We also drilled holes in each stake to tie the wire neatly through so it doesn’t slip off over time. We staggered about 35 logs over 100m2 so there is little space between each for the soil to slip through. The matting and log pinning took about 2.5 people one day to complete.
