PROJECT OVERVIEW

The shaded area between two adjoining properties remained moist and constantly eroded.

No grass could grow as there is minimal sunlight and water was flowing from adjoining properties due to the natural fall of the land. The erosion mat enabled the moisture to drain away yet encouraged the growth of the vegetation which would over time also help to anchor the mat into place.

WORKS UNDERTAKEN

  • Replace and level between buildings.
  • Carry the mats into place in strips using wheelbarrows.
  • Place the mats and pin down.
  • Plant the Mondo Grass between concrete shapes.
  • Cover Geogrid with soil and stones

RESULTS & BENEFITS:

  • Safe and hard surface created from mat enabled safe access.
  • Very efficient solution for challenging scenario – working between two buildings up a slope with minimal resources.
  • Once laid the mats were able to be provide start working straight away enabling good safe access and reduced erosion.
  • Safe for environment, silt runoff captured and sediment runoff controlled – no contamination to the storm water drains.

TOOLS & EQUIPMENT FOR INSTALLATION
