ADVANTAGES

Sand bag structures normally make use of sturdy geotextile bags, filled on site using local sand. In most cases both the bags and sand are easily available. As the bags are liable to damage, both from natural causes and vandalism, structures are best buried with re-cycled sand, only to be exposed during extreme storms when they will act as a final line of defence. Damaged bags will release the enclosed sand harmlessly back to the beach, leaving only the geotextile to be retrieved. Structures are likely to have a life of only about 10 years.
