Suregreen TR4 Turf Reinforcement is used to protect existing grassed areas from excessive footfall and animal movements such as large dogs. Also, if the ground has very good drainage it can be used to preserve the grass for disabled pathways. It is also used to give structure to slopes up to 25 degrees to allow stabilization by grass or other plants such as shrubs.
TR4 is laid directly onto existing grass and acts as a barrier protecting the grass from expected extra wear. It also helps prevents over compaction of the underlying soils and so keeping the grass root structure intact and healthy.
The TR4 is pinned to the ground and the grass is allowed to growth through it, covering it and then entangling with the matting
Made from fully UV stabilized, chemically inert recycled polyethylene, Suregreen TR4 Turf Reinforcement matting would be expected to last over 15 years if used appropriately.
To meet reliable expectations. Suregreen TR4 Turf Reinforcement Matting works best on flat, even and self-draining soils. Also. Ideally, it should be laid directly onto existing established maintained grass. Please contact our technical team to confirm the site conditions and intended use of the matting would bring the best out of the TR4 matting.
Suregreen TR4 generally does not need planning permission.
Suregreen TR4 is suitable to be used as part of SuDS - the latest government guidelines regarding flood prevention. The matting allows full permeability into the natural water aquafer.
