Living shorelines are a good balance between nature and structure, good for marsh areas with little to no wave action. These small estuaries use native plants, sand and other natural materials.
Living shorlines usually cost more in material and labor cost. In order to preserve the shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay, the state is trying to encourage the use of living shorelines by offering special grants and finacing programs.
