Has anyone ever used the "in-situ" method of stacking bags of concrete around shorelines/banks, wetting thoroughly, and letting them slowly cure in order to stabilize soft areas? If you've never seen this method of construction take a look at these videos-this guy needed to build a headwall around a culvert carrying water under his driveway:
Here is the fully cured concrete wall during a heavy rain:
I'm thinking of doing this in a few areas with maybe just one or two layers of bags and then setting some native rock on top of it to give the illusion of a rocky shoreline. I think the bags with some geotextile fabric underneath should keep all of that weight from sinking into the mud.
