Where is too close to the edge of a bluff?

Do you own or manage high-bluff property? Are you concerned about neighboring bluff property?

  • You may think those plants at the edge are safe to stand on, and your fence or plants will keep family members and visitors safe.

  • What you may not know:  Many bluffs have a severe overhang that cannot be seen from above or from a boat.

  • The only safe and cost-effective way to know is to get a detailed video of your bluff from the top edge down to the beach by hiring Aerial Whidbey to program a drone to scan the entire bluff. Only then will you have the visual documentation to decide when and where to move the fence, add more vegetation, or take other steps for greater safety.

  • Next year, your bluff may be riskier. Consider a checkup video each Spring.

Safety first on high-bluff property.  Is the edge really safe to stand on?

  • AW has found through experience that many bluffs have a severe overhang that cannot be seen from above or from a boat.

  • Sure, you think those plants at the edge are safe to stand on. You also think you placed a fence or plants that will keep family members and visitors safe.

  • Think again and contact AW to get a video of your bluff's edge so that you know if you need to move the fence, add more vegetation, or take other steps soon.

  • Next year, your bluff may be riskier. Consider a periodic checkup video.
