· Cut the grass as short as possible and make sure the ground is as level as possible, fill all voids with good topsoil and compact. If the voids are deep then fill with compacted sharp sand, before placing topsoil.
· Unroll the geomesh over the area to be reinforced, making sure the mesh is in contact with the ground.
· Fix Geomesh to ground using “U” shaped pins (supplied separately). Spacing of the “U” should be between 1m and 2 m, depending on the ground conations. Fix with extra “U” pins in areas where the geomesh is not in contact with the ground.
· Adjacent rolls of the geomesh should be overlapped by 100mm, and fixed to the ground by the “U” pins spaced at 1m intervals.
· Cover the geomesh with a layer of topsoil mixed with sharp sand. Apply a suitable grass seed at a rate of 20g/m2, in bare areas increase the amount to 40gm/m2.
· Keep traffic off the area until grass is grown at least 25mm and has been cut using a high blade setting.
Geomesh UK is a stiff extruded grid made from HDPE polymer for the reinforcement and protection of grassed areas used by traffic. The use of Geomesh UK ensures an economical and fast solution in both temporary and or permanent applications. Geomesh UK helps to prevent shear failure in the sub-grade and reduce rutting to a minimum. Once the Geomesh is installed, grass will grow through the mesh openings, interlocking with the geomesh grids, resulting a stable crust. Geomesh UK can be supplied in green or black.
