Rip-rap shoreline bulkhead repair

We've picked up where we left off a few months ago....more shoreline needing repair....the area between the two arrows is what we focused on today.  The existing bulkhead has eroded and there are just a few rip-rap stones left.  Our process is to bring wheel barrow loads of topsoil to fill the eroded voids.   New heavy duty fabric is used to hold it all together.  All the stones have to be moved one-by-one on top of the new fabric.

Lots of loads of topsoil....getting ready to move the existing stones.

Existing stones moved on top of the fabric.

Starting to add new rip-rap on top of the fabric/new soil.

This is our progress...the sun is going down so the sun is not bright.   Good day's work!!  More later!
