Wetland Restoration

Wetlands are host to many ecosystem services like absorbing stormwater and reducing flood events; providing unique habitats for thousands of plant and animal species; filtering pollutants out of waterways; and sequestering greenhouse gas emissions.

More than one-third of the United States' threatened and endangered species live only in wetlands, and nearly half use wetlands at some point in their lives. Source: U.S. EPA

Inspired by New England Wetland Plants.

Unfortunately, misguided development over the last century in-filled and compromised many of the US’s 220 million acres of wetlands. If you live on a wetland, you can help mitigate the damage of decades of poor zoning by restoring your local wetland and bringing back the birds and butterflies!

Green Jay Landscape Design is experienced in all scales of wetland restoration. A typical restoration project might include:

  • Restoration and mitigation plans
  • Vegetation survey and ecological site inventory
  • Invasive species removal
  • Sediment removal, mechanical dredging, hydro-dredging, and suction harvesting
  • Native planting for mitigation, filtration, and habitat creation
  • Aeration
  • Observation and reporting
  • Assistance with regulator permits where applicable
  • Coir fiber logs for riparian buffer and bank stabilization
  • NY DEC, NY DES, US EPA compliance

Much of our Northeast landscapes are natural forest ecosystems. Before, during, and after development and land clearing, selection of successional species should be planned and managed for resilient landscapes.
