Wetland Restoration & Delineation
A wetland can range from a slight depression that holds water only after a
rain shower, to a forested swamp with saturated peat soils.
Wetland areas are defined by the types of vegetation, soils and hydrology. Wetlands
are complex, environmentally sensitive eco-systems that are subject to their own
set of federal, state, and local regulations. Wetland restoration and landscaping
near a wetland may require mitigation procedures such as a specific planting design,
low-impact construction, or other preservation measures.
Wetland delineation is simply identifying the boundary between a wetland and the
adjacent upland. If you are planning on landscaping a part of your yard that contains
a wet area, a wetland delineation should be performed to determine if a wetland
exists on your property.
Environmental Construction landscape professionals can answer your questions about the
wetland restoration process and wetland delineation.
