The Brief –
Overflow carpark…Create a grassed, reinforced over flow car park that is an economic alternative to concrete, and maintains an aesthetically pleasing appearance.
The Solution –
Grass Reinforcement Mesh is a long lasting, extruded polyethylene mesh made from 20% recyclable material. The open mesh structure allows Australian Grass to grow through and cover the Grass Reinforcement Mesh. It is cost efficient comparable to concrete and suitable for light – medium vehicle applications.
The Conclusion – Overflow Carpark
The existing area was cleared and levelled and Grass Reinforcement was then laid and pinned using Steel Fastening Pins. The Mesh was then top dressed with soil and seeded with Cooch Grass. After 4 months of installation, the area has 75% coverage of grass . With continual watering and care the areas of slow grass growth will grow and knit with the mesh to provide complete coverage.
