Saw these in the Wetlands while walking around Lake Hayes.

Growing on sand at high tide mark in estuary.
I need some advice if these rush species planted along the stream bank will be enough to hold this bank together? Are they deep rooted? They have only just been planted. Or would something like Carex secta be better at stabilising the bank? Thanks
