Geotextile

LANDSCAPE FABRIC FOR GROUND STABILIZATION, WEED CONTROL & MORE

At Performance Footing, we offer non-woven geoxtextile fabric for use around your farm, arena or equestrian center. Non-woven geotextiles have historically been used for filtration and erosion control and have many other beneficial characteristics which work in combination with our BaseCore™ geocells.

Geotextile

$599.00

We offer geotextile fabric that is strong, puncture and UV resistant, and allows water flow. These features help to prevent weeds, mildew, freezing and thawing resistance and rot. Nonwoven geotextiles mean that a stronger foundation can be made with fewer materials.

Like our BaseCore™ geocells, geotextile fabric stabilizes the ground by spreading loads over a larger area. By being lighter, less expensive, and thinner than layers of gravel, it makes financial and environmental sense to use this around your barn, stables and arenas.

Each roll is 12.5 ft x 360 ft

Availability: 41 in stock

For the more technical, our geotextile fabric is made of 5.9oz polypropylene (PET) fabric that is needle-punched and 1.6mm thick. It is extremely strong, with a tensile strength of 2246lbs, UV resistant, puncture strength of 404 lbs and has a water flow rate of 62 gallons/min per square foot.

Instructions:

Once you have prepped the location where you will be utilizing the Geotextile Fabric, the installation process is quick and easy.

If you are doing a larger area such as a parking pad or arena make sure you roll the fabric over the entire area where the panels will be positioned. Overlap all edges around the BaseCore™️ and each seam between the fabric pieces by approximately 8-12”.

A key benefit of non-woven geotextile fabric, is that it prevents the mixing of a subgrade and an aggregate material. For example, in the design of an arena, geotextile prevents your compacted gravel from seeping into the ground, therefore stabilizing the overall footing base.

This helps to ensure the longevity of your arena, turnouts, paddocks or other areas where you may be installing proper footing.

Do you experience cold climates? Geotextile fabric is the same material used to protect plants from frost only much thicker. It has been shown by the US Army Corps of Engineers to mitigate frost heave when studying underlying soils. This helps stop the formation of holes or uneven foundations caused by temperature changes and erosion form the rain, snow and wind.

Your Soil Needs A Friend

Soil that is too soft experiences problems with poor drainage and puddling. Soil that is loosely packed erodes away with the weather. And mixing substrates without anything to separate them causes unpleasant compacting. These issues are all made exponentially worse if the ground needs to bear a great deal of weight, such as roads, embankments, driveways, parking pads, and even horse arenas.
