How we added value
Natural flood management
Natural flood management work will include the creation of wetland features such as new pools and reedbeds, floodplain bunds to slow the flow within the floodplain, and in-channel features such as leaky dams and woody barriers. These green engineering options hold back water flow and spread it onto the floodplain when river levels are high.
The aim of these NFM solutions is to mitigate flood risk, while simultaneously creating biodiversity-rich green spaces which support wildlife and help local communities connect with wild nature.
Exemplified by NFM, nature-based solutions can help us address some of society's greatest challenges, from climate change and coastal erosion through to crop stabilisation and wildfire mitigation. Much of our work at Ecosulis already focuses on the restoration of landscapes and wild nature, which brings a range of sustainable benefits for both clients and wider society.
