There is another name for grass protection mesh, namely grass reinforcement plastic mesh. grass protection mesh is a heavy duty, thick extruded thermoplastic grid for protecting and reinforcing grassed areas prone to becoming muddy and rutted in wet conditions.
Grass protection mesh is laid directly onto the grassed surface and secured by steel U-pins. If the surface is uneven, measures should be made to level and fill any depressions with a mixture of sand, topsoil and seed. The grass roots will quickly grow through the mesh apertures and will intertwine with the mesh filaments, creating a very strong stable surface. It is advisable to allow the grass to grow through the mesh before use. The grassed area will soon resume its natural appearance as the mesh disappears beneath the surface.
