Is Your Property Ready for Coastal Storm Surge? | Dune Doctors

Communities along the Gulf Coast strive to prepare for each hurricane season before they start! Following that same proactive logic, building protection against storm surges should also occur well in advance. Sand dunes are the first line of defense for people and properties in the event of destructive wave action. Dune Doctors combines the strategic placement of sand fences with native coastal vegetation to build protective dunes for waterfront communities. Sand fences capture sand in the shape of a continuous, evenly-distributed berm along the entire width of the property. The native dune-building plants anchor the berm in place. This strategy provides the most efficient way to build new lines of defense between coastal properties and waterborne threats.
