Reef Innovations is the Worldwide Contractor for Reef Balls.

We do much more than build Reef Balls.  This site highlights our products, services and resources. We can provide a few Reef Balls to homeowners, or full scale turn key operations for government agencies or non-governmental organizations.

  • We build large projects on site. However we have a facility in Sarasota, Florida, where you can pick up small orders.
  • We can mobilize a crew and materials for operations at your location.
  • Over 23 years of experience on projects that range from remote islands to metropolitan areas.
  • We pride ourselves in using local labor and materials that provide an economic stimulus and community ownership for your project.

Contact us early in the planning of your project for support or for a quote.

Reef balls reduce wave action and allow the deposition of sediment. Low marsh grass (Spartina alterniflora) has been planted along the shore behind the reef balls. The re-establishment of marsh grasses will protect the fragile shoreline from erosion and help to ameliorate the effects of storm surge.
