If you own a waterfront home you probably know all too well the feeling of watching your highly valuable property erode.

It’s kind of like watching your stocks tank in a bear market.

Or my own personal fear: that delightful yellow fruit, rotting away in the banana bowl…egads… perish the thought!

But exactly seventy-seven years after the Japanese devastated Pearl Harbor, it was so good to witness something positive on an American shoreline: the Veteran owned and operated Mud Monkeys. halting a serious water erosion issue for one Ashland City homeowner.

The weapon of choice? Forget the machine guns and P-51 Mustangs, this was rip rap, six to twelve inch stone, loaded into a tri-axle and placed using Mud Monkey’s Bobcat track machine.

I’ve seen these jobs botched before, they are extremely difficult to fix by hand due to the irregular shape and weight of the stone. But Mud Monkey’s highly skilled, experienced Bobcat operator made short work of it,

Tawnya, the Mud Monkeys’ customer, agreed it was expertly accomplished and expressed her pleasure with the work, knowing the serious erosion problem had been halted for good. “You did an excellent job, I’m very happy!,” she exclaimed.

And no wonder:

While there is always damage when running a Bobcat on lawn, it doesn’t usually tear out roots so the grass will come back. Smoothing it up, though is critical and, as you can see, even working in mud, Mud Monkey’s operator is second to none in that regard.

If you have an erosion problems contact Mud Monkeys today for a quote on having rip-rap installed.

It’s not a cheap job for sure but a lot less expensive than losing feet of your valuable shoreline!

It works on eroding drainage ditches as well.

And that’s the way it was, December 7th, 2018, roving reporter Mud. D. Monkey signing off.
