When you need a superior quality turf protector for circumstances or occasions where light vehicle or pedestrian use is unavoidable, trust TurfProtector to get the job done .Available from Tapex, TurfProtector is an extruded black or green lightweight plastic mesh for grass reinforcement and protection, and is particularly useful in situations where the turf might be subject to impact from walking or vehicles.

  • Suitable for overflow car parking, grass access routes, grass footpaths, pedestrianised grassed areas, wheelchair and disabled access routes
  • Reinforces grassed surfaces prone to wear, rutting and smearing which can result in an unusable muddy surface.
  • Turf protector supplied in 2m x 30m rolls./li>

TERRAM TurfProtector grass reinforcement mesh can be installed on recently cut grass.It is simply unrolled and pinned to the surface using metal U-Pins or plastic pegs.We highly recommend installing the turf protector during the growing season to enable the mesh to interlock strongly with the grass roots. The grass will grow through the reinforcement mesh, creating a natural reinforced and stabilised grassed surface able to withstand pedestrian and occasional vehicle loads (such as grass access routes), limit damage and reduce soil compaction.

TurfProtector grass reinforcement mesh can also be installed on newly landscaped areas by laying the rolls on top of a level, well drained, seeded soil, pinned and then covered with a layer of topsoil and seed, for both permanent and temporary applications.

After a few months of the growing season, the grass roots will have intertwined with the mesh filaments creating a strong stable surface capable of withstanding heavy pedestrian and occasional vehicular use. The grass can be cut as normal and will have regained its natural appearance. The grass can however be mown, rolled and fertilised as usual during this period.

It is advisable to allow the grass to fully establish before the area is used to create a stronger reinforced surface (this may take only a few weeks to a few months depending on the grass growing season).
