22 Sept 2011, BShore Haarlem constructed

 

On Sept 22nd a segment of BShore has been constructed on the small island "Mooie Nel" near the city of Haarlem, on behalf of the community of Haarlem

 

This island (which is situated just below the water surface) has been planted with reed and reedmace several times already. However, always the plants disappear after a short while through grazing by waterbirds like geese.

 

Now a layer of GC's has been applied over fresh young plants. Hereby these plants should be less accessible for the birds. The idea is that at the time the plants are strong enough to survive these threads the GC's will slowly disappear. Hereto 20 cm GC's are developed, made of PLA, strengthened with hemp fibers and aggravated with sand. This material is bio-degradable over a few years. 2 material variations were used, and GC's were applied in 2 densities. A total of 5 zones have been constructed, at various water depths.
