Application Function

Ground Stabilisation

 

TERRAM TURFPROTECTA is an extruded black or green, lightweight plastic mesh for grass or turf reinforcement and protection. It is typically used where occasional light vehicle or pedestrian use is required but where the grassed surfaces are prone to wear, rutting and smearing which can otherwise result a muddy surface incapable of being used.

 

TERRAM TURFPROTECTA turf reinforcement mesh is supplied in 2m x 30m rolls and in two grades, ‘Standard’ and ‘Heavy’ as determined by the application including:  

  • Overflow grass car parks
  • Grass access routes
  • Pedestrianised grassed areas
  • Grass footpaths
  • Wheelchair / Disabled (DDA) access routes
  • Front lawn parking
  • Aircraft taxiways

TERRAM TURFPROTECTA grass reinforcement net is manufactured from 100% recycled, UV Stable, high density polyethylene.

Installation is simple: after cutting the grass short, the TERRAM TURFPROTECTA turf reinforcement mesh is unrolled and pinned to the surface using metal U-Pins or plastic pegs. By allowing plants to grow through the plastic mesh, the grass sward intertwines with the plastic mesh filaments creating a strong, discreetly reinforced surface, limiting damage and reducing soil compaction. It is recommended that installation is carried out during the growing season to allow a strong interlock between the TERRAM TURFPROTECTA mesh and the grass roots. The grass will grow through the reinforcement mesh, creating a natural reinforced and stabilised grassed surface capable of applications including car parks and grass access routes. After a few months of the growing season, the grass roots will have intertwined with the mesh filaments creating a strong stable surface capable of withstanding heavy pedestrian and occasional vehicular use. 

The grass can be cut as normal and will regained its natural appearance. The grass can also be mown, rolled and fertilised as usual during this period.

TERRAM TURFPROTECTA grass reinforcement mesh can be installed onto existing grassed surfaces or newly landscaped areas (laid on top of a level, well drained, seeded soil, pinned and then covered with a layer of topsoil and seed), for both permanent or temporary applications. TERRAM TURFPROTECTA is the perfect ground reinforcement mesh for grassed areas prone to becoming muddy and rutted in wet conditions.
