The use of geotextiles allows the plants to be fully protected not only from frost, but also from sunlight in the summer. Such modern material has proven itself in various areas of home gardening and horticulture, so it has become very popular and in demand in the suburban area.
Geotextile fabric belongs to the category of geosynthetics and can be represented by needle-punched, heat-bonded or hydro-bonded materials created on the basis of polypropylene or polyester yarns.
Geotextiles are the best choice for modern design and have the following main characteristics:
Among other things, if necessary, various fastening methods can be used.
Today, several types of such modern material are used in gardening and horticulture.
Depending on the features of the production technology, such a material may be:
Depending on the type and characteristics of the feedstock, the geotextile web can be polypropylene, polyester, polyamyl or made of low-pressure polyethylene.
The use of geotextile fabric for the garden or in landscape work is very in demand. Such modern material is used to protect the infield from weeds and in various design decisions.
Weed vegetation can cause a lot of problems when cultivating various plants. Weed grass interferes with the full development of any home crops, including flowers, vegetables and fruit plants.
To minimize the need to perform weeding, it is necessary to use environmentally friendly and economical, modern geotextile fibers. Landing protection is most often carried out with a fabric that is black. Such textiles are especially highly valued when creating landscape compositions, but in recent years they are increasingly used on ordinary garden ridges and in the zone of garden plantings.
The scope of geotextile fabric is quite extensive, and ease of use, reliability and durability make such a material indispensable in landscape work:
Geotextile fabric in large quantities is used in the arrangement of the coating at the bottom of artificial ponds and ponds.
Roof garden design is a modern and very bright, unusual solution. Roof landscaping is carried out in several stages:
At the final stage of greening the roof, a high-quality garden substrate is poured in the form of a soil-based mixture with the addition of components such as fine-grained sand, perlite, peat, expanded clay, clay, wood chips, slate and crushed bark. The thickness of such soil may vary depending on the type of root system of the planted plants.
When creating artificial ponds and ponds, it is necessary to use material with an increased density of approximately 250-300 g per square meter, as well as a geomembrane. The waterproofing membrane requires reliable protection against damage.
The unique properties of modern geotextiles helps protect water from blooming. Such materials are very resistant to basic loads, and the laying method is selected taking into account the characteristics of the soil. Most often, installation is performed under a geomembrane, but the material can be laid both above the membrane, and at the same time two sides. The latter option is the most reliable and durable.
Geotextiles are often used in construction, in order to strengthen the soil's bearing capacity. Its use under the foundation of the building allows you to make the soil more stable for loads. Geotextile can help to separate the layers of slab foundations in the construction of frame structures and tall houses made of cellular concrete. The material must be spread to the bottom of a dug pit and sprinkled with a crushed stone pillow. On top of the gravel, you also need to lay a waterproofing layer.
Geotextiles belong to the category of modern and universal materials, and its application will not require special skills or professional tools. The use of such materials can significantly simplify the work on the personal plot and activities aimed at landscaping.
