Hanson's Garden Village is your Northwood's distributor for Envirolok products.
If you are concerned about landscaping challenges such as soil erosion, storm water runoff, slope stabilization or water erosion, among other things, then we'd like you to consider Envirolok, a vegetated retaining wall from Agrecol. We have been involved with the installation of thousands of Envirolok bags since 2008, and are pleased with how well they work.
Some of the uses for Envirolok are:
Natural retaining walls, which are eligible for permits when other types of construction are not in environmentally sensitive areas.
Storm water management
Residential lakeshore preservation and remediation
Creating functional green spaces
Creating naturalized buffers along tributaries
The Envirolok System provides permanent erosion control in these important steps:
Envirolok soil bags, which encapsulate the soil, are woven into a wall unit with including a locking spike to create immediate surface stability.
The bags are planted with native plants or seed which develop extensive root systems, growing through the bags.
Mature natives, with some of their powerful root structures growing many feet into the earth, lock the wall into place, even growing into the existing native soil.
This provides an ecologically sound and beautiful vegetated erosion control system with permanent structural strength.
Envirolok vegetated walls are strong, environmentally-friendly, and create beautiful, permanent natural landscapes with native plants. Hanson's also has the seed, plant plugs and shrubs required to complete the job.
Restoring Native Plant Commentary
We are continued partners in the ground breaking "Wisconsin Lakeshore Research Project", an attempt to measure the benefits of various lakeshore restoration projects. We are also pleased with our partnership with Agrecol in bringing the benefits of the Envirolok vegetated slope stabilizing system to Northern Wisconsin.
