GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh is a heavy duty thick slip resistant polyethylene plastic mesh grid for reinforcing and protecting grassed surfaces prone to wear, rutting and smearing which can result in a muddy surface incapable of withstanding vehicular or pedestrian traffic applications. TERRAM GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh has been has been developed with an oscillated mesh structure which is designed to increase traction and improve slip resistance by up to 97% compared to standard straight oriented meshes. GrassProtecta® grass protection mesh is a cost effective solution for :

• Grass car parks
• Overflow grass car parks
• Pedestrian paths
• Disabled (DDA) access routes
• Light aircraft taxiways
• Grass verges
• Caravan park access and caravan bays
• Front lawn parking
• Golf buggy paths

GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh is supplied on 2mx20m, 2mx10m & 1mx10m rolls in three thickness grades (Lite 10mm, Medium 13mm & Heavy 14.5mm). The choice of grade is determined by the application, frequency of use and the type of vehicle traffic. 

Manufactured in the UK at TERRAM's Maldon plant, our technical sales team are available to discuss any specific site requirements and provide clear advice on the correct grade to meet your requirements. 

Installation is very simple; After cutting the grass short, the grass protection mesh is unrolled and pinned to the surface using metal U-Pins or plastic pegs. By allowing plants to grow through the plastic mesh apertures, GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh allows the grass sward to intertwine with the plastic mesh filaments creating a strong, discreetly reinforced natural grass surface capable of withstanding vehicle loads, limiting damage and reducing soil compaction. GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh can also be installed onto newly landscaped areas with the soil seeded as required. Full installation and design specification are available from TERRAM's technical team or in the downloads section below.

We strongly advise that newly installed GrassProtecta® slip resistant grass reinforcement mesh should be left unused until the grass has grown through the plastic net apertures and a strong interlock between grass roots and the plastic mesh has been achieved - normally after a few weeks during the growing season rising to a few months out of the growing season. This process allows the grass to fully grow through the grass reinforcement net and allow the grass sward to create the strong interlock with the mesh. If the surface is used immediately grass growth may take a longer period of time and may limit the effectiveness of the product.

GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement grid provides:

  • High level of grass reinforcement.
  • Up to 8 tonnes per axle (imposed load)
  • Ideal for permanent or temporary applications
  • Fast and cost effective installation compared to plastic paving grids
  • No excavation or soil removal necessarily required
  • Up to 97% improved slip resistance compared to the standard grass protection meshes

GrassProtecta® grass reinforcement mesh can be used in Source Control applications as part of Sustainable Urban Drainage System (SUDS) and is the perfect alternative to impermeable paved surfaces where natural grassed traffic routes and driveways are preferred and where planning restrictions are applied or cost savings are being considered.



All GrassProtecta® products are manufactured at TERRAM’s state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Maldon, Essex using high quality recycled and virgin high-density polyethylene (HDPE).
