Commercial Willow Spiling

Client: Undisclosed

Location: Witney, Oxfordshire

Service: Erosion Control

Project Outline:

JPR were brought in to provide a lasting bank stabilisation where previous attempts had failed.

Bank stabilisation using willow spiling on housing development

Willow Spiling In A Commercial Setting: 

What do you do if previous attempts to stabilise a bank using concrete and stone (hard-engineering) have failed? In this instance, we used willow spiling along a section of earth bank that supports an access road to a housing development. As this was a residential setting, we chose a number of willow varieties for their aesthetic appeal.

The solution couldn’t have been better. The development now has a lovely, willow bank with lush foliage in summer and plenty of colour from the rods in winter. A bank that was prone to erosion has been stabilised and there is no danger of the mill race being overgrown.
