Geotextiles are permeable fabrics which, when used in association with soil, have the ability to separate, filter, reinforce, protect or drain. Typically made from polypropylene or polyester, geotextile fabrics come in three basic forms: woven (looks like mail bag sacking), needle punched (looks like felt) or heat bonded (looks like ironed felt).
Geotextile composites have been introduced and products such as geogrids and meshes have been developed. Overall, these materials are referred to as geosynthetics and each configuration – geonets, geogrids and others – can yield benefits in geotechnical and environmental engineering design.
Open weave, pure jute meshes provide seed and soil on bare surfaces vulnerable to erosion. The fabrics easily mould to the contours of the landscape, effectively controlling erosion.
Jute Soil Saver supplied by Jimpex UK is of the highest quality and is imported directly from one of the biggest jute mills in India.
Open weave, pure coir (coconut fibre meshes) offer similar benefits to that of jute, but are much stronger; making them ideal for environments where erosion forces are particularly harsh.
