Grass Protection Mesh for Grass Reinforcment

Grass Protection Mesh
for Grass Reinforcment

Grass Protection Mesh

This protection mesh is an extruded-designed plastic mesh intended for the purpose of reinforcement, stabilization and protection of turf and grass. The turf and grass are mostly intended for occasionally trafficked, light vehicle and pedestrian applications.

The mesh is very effective in stabilizing grass and once the grass and root system has grown through the mesh a natural look as well as a more strongly-reinforced grassed surface creates a very useful and ascetically pleasing grass surface.


Installation Advantages / Weight Rating

Grass protection mesh is unique as it does not require that the existing grass is removed prior to installation. Many other grass and ground reinforcement product on the market require the complete removal and reinstallation of the grass area. (This is to provide a very high load capacity which is not attainable by above grass meshes) For applications where heavy vehicles such as semi-trucks or fire engines will not be regularly driving, grass protection mesh is an ideal solution which will save on both the installation cost of the project and the overall material cost. For a heavy-duty grass reinforcement solution which is capable of loads up to 97,000 pounds / sq. ft. see our selection of grass pavers.

The product is intended to be used for light vehicles and pedestrians. In addition, it is also be used for airport taxi paths and car parking lots. The recommended applications of the grass protection mesh include:

  • Parking space and Access to the Grass Residential

  • Overflow occasional use parking lots
  • Golf Cart Paths
  • Grass Paths
  • Handicap access paths/Wheelchair

Daily Use Considerations
If the grassed area is used as a daily use parking lot or access road with regular vehicle traffic, it is recommended that the heavier grade product
grasprotecta is considered, as it provides a higher weight rating. Grassprotecta requires a similar installation process and can be rolled onto of existing turf creating a highly reinforced area suitable for passenger vehicles as well as pedestrian traffic.

Growing Period

Right after you have completely installed the mesh, you need to leave the plastic stabilization mesh area unused during the first growing season. The main purpose of doing this is to permit the roots of the grass to intertwine with the plastic-based mesh filaments. After the first season, the mash now disappears beneath the grass’ surface. It now offers a reinforced surface that can withstand the heavy weight of cars or the rigorous demand of continual foot traffic.

Available in Green and Black

Grass protection mesh type material is available in a number of different styles and thicknesses. This is mainly manufactured in HDPE Plastic and is mainly available in a green and black color. If you would like assistance choosing the right mesh for your project feel free to give us a call at (800) 524-4161.

Perfect for Grassed Areas

The grass protection mash, specifically the product mentioned, is intended for grassed areas. Ideal application areas for the product are those areas that are more prone to wet conditions and mud.

Traction

The mesh can be slippery when first installed. This is due to the relatively smooth nature of the material. Traction for both vehicles and pedestrians will be greatly increased once grass has begun to grow through the mesh. Until the root system has grown over the mesh, the plastic mesh may become especially slippery especially during wet conditions. It is advised that pedestrian traffic is diverted around the area until an above mesh root system is apparent or until enough grass has grown through to give significant traction.

Product Specifics

  • For a roll size of 6.56’ x98’, you can have a heavy grade and black color with mesh aperture of “0.86x 1.06” and weight of 0.135 lbs/ft 2 and HDPE material

  • For a roll size of 6.56’ x98’, you can have a heavy grade and green color with mesh aperture of “0.86x 1.06” and weight of 0.135 lbs/ft2 and HDPE material

Fixing Pegs and Pins

In securing the grass protection mesh, using “metal U-pins” is even more essential for the existing surface on the grass. This should at least be at the minimum interval of three feet. These U-pins are constructed of steel and measure 6.7x 2.75”x 0.23

Product Summery

Through the use of a protection mesh, you’ll be able to improve the grassed surface around your area. It will also be protected against the wear and tear process, smearing and rutting. This actually results in the muddy surfaces with cars not capable of withstanding pedestrian or vehicular applications.

This is specifically designed in increasing the traction and improving the slip resistance. When compared to other paver products, grass protection mesh is the most economical ground reinforcement solution on the market.

The installation is quite simple that right after you have cut the grass short, unroll the mesh and stake with metal U pins into the grass.

Allow the turf to grow through the mesh and establish a root base above the material. This now creates a reinforced and strong surface for a variety of purposes as listed above. This can surely withstand the weight of passenger vehicles as well as demanding foot traffic.

It is recommended that the area is unused for the first growing season to allow for a solid root base to be established and also to increase traction.

Alternative Uses

Many homeowners have used the mesh to protect their yards from damage caused by large dogs. Grass protection mesh is an excellent solution as it can be installed over existing grass to protect against rutting. The material can be staked and will stay in place nicely. If a softer grass surface is desired the material can be rolled up and stored, ready for the next use. The grids on the mesh are small enough to prevent most large dog's paws from getting getting stuck allowing for a safe surface for them to play.

Grass Protection Mesh is available from Landscape Discount in a variety of different colors and styles. For more information or to place an order please call: (800) 564-4161.
