TerraGreen™ geosynthetic turf reinforcement mats allow for durable erosion protection and will help you make significant savings compared to rock riprap and other traditional solutions.

When higher resistance is required, is it possible to use TerraGreen™ geosynthetic turf reinforcement mats for durable erosion control and protection, while also allowing for vegetation to grow through the synthetic fibres, even in situations where the forces exerted by water flows exceed the shear limits of unreinforced vegetation.

As outlined above, these erosion control mats have proven to be an excellent alternate to rock riprap, much more economical, faster and easier to install.

About Geosynthetic Turf Reinforcement Mats for Erosion Control

Turf reinforcement mats are synthetic mats designed to prevent soil erosion on steep slopes and in drainage areas, while also promoting vegetation growth. As plants grow, their roots penetrate the mat, becoming entangled within it. This integration helps to further stabilise the soil and reinforce the vegetation, making it resilient against storms and high flow velocities. Due to their synthetic composition, these erosion control mats are a permanent solution, offering durability and long life.

As outlined, geosynthetic turf reinforcement mats, such as TerraGreen™ are ideal for high-velocity or critical slope applications. In contrast, erosion control blankets are biodegradable and typically used temporarily to establish vegetation. Compared to Rip Rap, erosional control mats provide a more aesthetically pleasing outcome and are usually easier to install, often without the need for heavy machinery.

Geosynthetic Turf Reinforcement Mats are effectively used in:

  • Steep slopes
  • Shorelines and riverbanks
  • Pipe inlets and outlets
  • Agricultural applications
  • Irrigation and stormwater ponds
  • Preventing surface erosion of slopes
