Sharptown Living ShorelineWhat is a "Living Shoreline?" A natural shoreline with a gradual transition between the bank and water's edge. Typically, planted with native (plants common to the local area) trees, shrubs and grasses - living shorelines do not end abrubtly at water's edge like a common bulkhead. Instead they use gradual slopes, vegetation, and low rock sills to slow wave energy and create habitat for fish, crabs and other critters that live along this transitional area.
