Our Shoreline Erosion Restoration Services in Kissimmee FL

Shoresox is what Lake and Wetland uses to restore and control shoreline erosion. It is 100% environment-friendly and made with all organic materials. Without proper shoreline control, the shoreline will erode further and further throughout the years until the damage can be very costly or irreversible. When there is shoreline erosion ecosystem of the lake is affected. When the water slowly fills in on the land, this created property damaged and even residential damage if the residences are close enough, which in Florida, they usually are.

That is when the native plants from the nursery are installed. These plants usually are installed in the littoral shelves were they can filter the run-off the will go in the lake.

History of Central Florida

After the Civil War, most of Central Florida was wetlands, with the exception of cotton, cattle, and coastal lands. It required a major drainage project in the 1880s to make these wetlands usable for settlement.

Originally called Allandale after a Confederate major who operated the first cargo steamship, the town of Kissimmee boomed in the 1880s. Its location on Lake Tohopekaliga made the town an important regional steamboat port until the arrival of the railroads. Now the county seat, Kissimmee, is 18 miles south of Orlando.

Named after Samuel Pasco, Pasco County was incorporated by the Florida Legislature in 1887. With citrus as the main crop, the process for making orange juice concentrate was developed in Pasco County. The coastal part of the county was pretty much undeveloped until the second half of the 20th century when it became popular as a place to retire.

Many of Central Florida’s first settlers began arriving between 1858 through the end of 1877. These early Floridians began to homestead and start ranching in the lands around Kissimmee and Orlando. Heritage sites in this area include the Kissimmee Historic District, Osceola County Historical Museum & Pioneer Enrichment Center, Bartow Downtown Commercial District, Florida Air Museum, and more.
