TurfProtecta - Turf Reinforcement Mesh / Grass Protection Mesh
Turfprotecta turf reinforcement mesh is an extruded plastic mesh for the protection, stabilization and reinforcement of grass and turf for pedestrian, light vehicle and occasionally trafficked applications. Turf reinforcement mesh stabilizes the grass by allowing the grass to interlock with the plastic mesh structure creating a strong reinforced grassed surface. TurfProtecta™ grass protection mesh is ideal for pedestrian and light vehicle use, overflow car parking lots and airport taxi-ways.
Applications for Turfprotecta™ turf reinforcement mesh include:
- Overflow parking lots
- Grass residential access and parking space
- Grass Paths
- Wheelchair / Handicap access paths
- Golf Cart Paths
After installing turf reinforcement mesh, it is essential that the plastic stabilization mesh area be left unused to enable the grass roots to intertwine with the plastic mesh filaments.
This may take up to one growing season where grass growth is slow or where the product is installed out of the growing season. The reinforced surface will soon resume its natural appearance with the turf reinforcement mesh disappearing below the surface of the grass providing a reinforced surface that will withstand the weight of cars and heavy pedestrian use. TurfProtecta™ grass reinforcement mesh is available in black & green in a heavy grade and is manufactured from 100% recycled HDPE plastic.
Turfprotecta™ is an ideal ground reinforcement mesh for grassed areas prone to mud and rutted ground particularly in wet conditions for light vehicle or pedestrian applications.
During the growing season TurfProtecta™ can be laid and ready for use within just a few weeks as the grass grows quickly through the mesh apertures. Out of season it is advisable to ensure a longer period before use. If installed in the winter months, we advise not to use the area until early to mid spring or when the mesh has been fully covered by the grass growth.
Plastic meshes can become slippery in wet conditions when the grass has not been given time to grow through the mesh apertures.
