Developed in Europe for use in applications as part of Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS), GrassProtecta® is the perfect alternative to impermeable paved surfaces where natural grassed traffic routes and driveways are preferred, or where planning restrictions are applied, or cost is an issue.
Installation is fast and cost effective, especially when compared to plastic paving grids, and requires no excavation or soil removal. Within weeks after installation, the grass thatch grows through the GrassProtecta® mesh, ‘disappearing’ into the lawn.
The grass reinforcement mesh allows the grass sward to intertwine with the plastic mesh filaments to create a strong, discreetly reinforced natural grass surface capable of withstanding vehicle loads, limiting damage and reducing soil compaction.
GrassProtecta® continues to reinforce and protect grassed surfaces prone to wear which would otherwise result in a muddy surface incapable of withstanding vehicular or pedestrian applications. For example, the GrassProtecta® car park installed at Macquarie University continues to provide a long-term permeable parking solution many years after its installation.
