Geotextile felt is frequently used in garden design and gardening. This geotextile felt is indispensable for terrace installations on green or loose ground (no concrete slabs, sand, earth, etc.).
Geodeck® felt is also used for under garden paths, bocce ball courts or to protect the cover of a water basin.
It is laid directly on a loose soil (earth or grass) to avoid the untimely growth of weeds and the spread of tubers of invasive plants such as bamboo.
1 - A permeable felt
The Geodeck® geotextile felt acts as a protective barrier against the earth. It does, however, allow rainwater to pass through. Its permeability allows water to run off and prevents pockets of water stagnation. This contributes to good ventilation under the terrace.
2 - A very resistant film
The close-mesh weave enables our Geodeck® geotextile felt to resist traction and root invasion. A cutter or a pair of sharp scissors will be required to cut the felt to the correct dimensions.
3 - Better weight distribution
The punctual and distributed weight of the terrace, picked up by the adjustable pedestals, are best distributed on the ground thanks to the geotextile felt. Geodeck® felt therefore improves the overall stability of the structure.
20cm cover strip
Provide a 20 cm cover strip between 2 geotextile felts (approx. 10% per roll).
For special cases (e.g. a wide root system underground), it is possible to double the layers to increase the strength of the felt.
Mulching staples can be used to hold the film on the ground.
