• ‘Soft’ BioEngineering: Bio Draw describes in detail a series of “soft” bioengineering techniques and practices such as LIVE FASCINES, LIVE POLE DRAINS, COIR ROLLS WITH BRUSHLAYERING, POLE PLANTING, MODIFIED BRUSH LAYERS, BRUSH MATTRESSES, and MORE!
• Before & After Illustrations: The Bio Draw CD is liberally illustrated with “before” and “after” photos of real case studies which describe various installation steps for each technique. Clicking on the photos will expand them so details can be readily observed.
• Proven & Tested Practices: All of these practices have been implemented and monitored for their effectiveness by bioengineering practicioners!
Bio Draw 3.0 is the most credible and comprehensive bioengineering compendium in the erosion control industry today!
Not only do you get CAD drawings and construction specifications, but you also get comprehensive information for all aspects of biotechnical projects, such as the principles, rationale, and planning for a bioengineered approach.
The BMPs are conveniently separated into “Soil Bioengineering and Biotechnical Stabilization Practices (Ground Bioengineering)” and “Biotechnical Streambank Stabilization (Water Bioengineering)”.
Many informative photos accompany each BMP, showing installation procedures along with “before” and “after” shots of case studies. Each colorful photo can be portrayed in a larger view with the click of your mouse.
