MatsGrids Turf reinforcement mesh is available 550g/m² and reinforces grass where wear, rutting and muddy areas are common caused by traffic (cars, lorries, vans, pedestrians).
Turf Reinforcement mesh from Matsgrids is manufactured from an extruded plastic mesh (High-Density Polyethylene HDPE). Turf reinforcement mesh works by the grass sward and roots intertwine with the mesh filaments creating a strong interlock of grass and mesh. This interlock protects the grass from traffic wear and helps the grass spread loads more evenly. Turf reinforcement mesh suitable for pedestrian and light vehicle use, overflow car parks, grass paths, lawns, dog areas and light aircraft taxiways where traffic is light and infrequent. For more frequent and heavier traffic, MatsGrids would advise using Grass Reinforcement Mesh.
The installation of turf reinforcement mesh is simple: Turf Reinforcement mesh can be effectively employed onto stable, well-drained ground by simply unrolling and pinning adjacent and successive lengths using 3dia x 150 Long galvanised steel U-pins. After a period of time, grass will grow through the mesh and reach a height to be cut / mown. After a few cuts, the grass roots and sward will start to intertwine with the turf reinforcement meshes structure producing a reinforced grassed surface.
Very quickly the mesh will disappear as the grass quickly adopts a natural appearance – This reinforcement of grass and mesh reinforces the ground, protecting the ground from traffic wear. It is advisable that installations are carried out when the grass is in its growing season as this will enable the mesh and grass to fully bond together. Using the Grass Reinforcement Mesh for cars and other traffic before the grass and mesh have had enough time to intertwine and produce a solid thatch between the plastic mesh and grass could limit the effectiveness of the product. A few months would be advisable in the growing season before the area is used.
