Dune Doctors LLC is a coastal erosion control firm specializing in planning, constructing and maintaining native ecosystems and protective landscapes. For 17 years our environmental services have restored hundreds of properties from Florida to Texas. Dune Doctors works with state and federal regulating authorities to create aesthetically pleasing environmentally compliant landscapes that allow Mother Nature to optimize her protection of your property.
Dune Doctors LLC was founded in 2000 to fight the erosion problems that endanger the beautiful beaches of the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. We offer to restore, build up and stabilize your dunes in a fraction of the time it would take Mother Nature to reconstruct the environment. With the help of Dune Doctors, you will be able to enjoy the beauty of the dunes now, while preventing further erosion of your waterfront property. Nothing will resist a hurricane category 4 or 5 direct hit. However, we can provide you with solutions to limit damage.
We work with homeowners, condominium associations and landscape engineers to plan and design the best development of native ecosystems and the optimum protection for the landscape.
We are specialists in native ecosystems and protective habitats. A goal we strive to achieve is optimizing your protection level. We do so by either creating a protective berm with beach compatible sand or shaping your existing dune.
Once your coastal environment has been restored and renourished, we take the extra step of protecting that environment for the future, by erecting suitable safeguards against unwitting beach-goers and insensitive trespassers.
We start by stabilizing the base. In some cases, we bring sand with a tractor and create a berm. Next we continue by installing sand fence. The sand fence is installed with two 7 feet posts. The sand fence is anchored 3.5 feet deep in the dune. Finally we plant grasses like Panic grasses (Panicum amarum), Spartinas (Spartina bakerii and patens) and of course Sea Oats (Uniola paniculata). These grasses, if installed correctly and in good ratio, will build a deep net of roots that will hold and stabilize the core of the dune. Restoration of your dunes will bring you a lifetime of pleasure and beauty, add value to your property, and preserve one of our natural treasures.
Dune Doctors has 17 years of coastal-environment project management expertise, with hundreds of government, commercial and private projects completed. We tackle jobs large and small, from standard beach homes to condominium complexes to large, government contracts.
We know the ins and outs, ups and downs of sand dune geography and the behavior of nature along the coast. Not only can we protect your property for the future, but we can show you how to save money in the process, regardless of the scale of the job.
Dune Doctors’ first consultation is free of charge. We work around your schedule, recognizing that your beach house may not be your main residence.
