    Erosion control grids

    The Vodaland Geo Ground Grid system holds aggregates in place. These plastic erosion control grids prevent sand, stone, gravel, soil, mulch, wood chips, and much more from washing away on slopes. The anti erosion grid also holds aggregates in place in heavy-traffic areas, such as parking lots.


    Due to its compatibility with varying aggregates, the Geo Ground Grid proves useful in many different applications. Its main purpose as an erosion control grid solution is to control and prevent aggregates like sand, gravel, soil, or mulch from washing away or moving around due to water erosion. It’s most often used as a geocell grid for slope protection, but can also be used for walkways, parking lots, retaining walls, driveways, foundation grids, horse paddocks, farming projects, athletic field slopes, commercial projects and much more.

    Are the grids flexible? Can they curve and contour around obstacles?

    Geo Ground Grids are made of an incredibly flexible plastic. Because of their flexible material, they can contour over hills and curve around turns easily, with the help of our rebar hooker anchors for support. The lesser the height of the cell walls, the easier it is to contour. 


    What aggregates can I use with the grid and is a base required?

    Customers can use whichever aggregate they prefer with our erosion control product, but for vehicle loads or heavy pedestrian traffic, Vodaland recommends crashed stone as the only useable option. The best size of gravel for use with our geo grids for erosion control is 3/4-inch.


    It is recommended in all uses, that you lay a base layer of gravel beneath the grids. 2-3 inches of height for the gravel base is recommended. This is especially necessary for grid erosion control use under heavy traffic.


    Can our geoweb shaped Geo Ground Grids be cut or attached together?

    Vodaland designed the grids to be easily customizable to match your desired lengths for slope erosion. The geo web grids come at a size of 8.4 ft x 19.7 ft, but if a smaller size is needed, customers can easily cut the grid with a utility knife. To attach the grids together, it’s as simple as looping zip-ties through the permeation holes of each grid. This provides customers with an economical construction method.


    Do I need Anchors?

    We recommend anchors for any project as they are needed to have cells open when you spread the grid over a surface. We offer cost-effective anchors in 2 sizes: 12-inch and 18-inch height. For the 8-inch height grid, the 18-inch height anchor is the only compatible option. For 2-inch and 4-inch, the choice is yours based on your preference. The anchor is meant to hold the grid secure during aggregate pour, and then continues to provide reinforcement and ground stabilization to the grid. You can choose between anchors made of galvanized steel or plastic (high density polymer). Both will do a perfect job holding your grid on flat ground or to prevent erosion on slopes.


    Do I need Geo-Textile?

    We recommend our Geo-Textile Filter Fabric as a useful addition to your project. The geo-textile is installed beneath the geo ground grid to assist with structural integrity and permeability, and also does a great job at preventing weed growth through the aggregate.


    Will Geo Ground Grids work to Reduce Slip on Sloped Driveways?

    Geo Ground Grids are a great solution to make gravel on slopes into drivable surfaces. It’s purpose as an erosion control solution mainly for flood water and rainwater, can also be used to prevent erosion from tire traffic. When gravel is used as sloped ground on roads, the tires will not be able to grip the gravel properly and risks slippage. By containing the infill material with our cellular confinement technology, you hold it in place, allowing tires to find proper grip and drive without delay.


    How much does it cost to install Geo Ground Grids?

    Geo Ground Grids are an extremely cost-effective method for gravel and soil erosion prevention. The diamond grid can be filled quickly and is simple to install, meaning anyone with knowledge in ground services will be able to install without issue. Simple tools, quick labor, and simple aggregates means the overall costs will stay minimal. 


    Can the Geo Ground Grid be used for flood prevention?

    You often see our Geo Ground Grids used even for high-quality flood prevention in a flood emergency. During flood season, those creating flood barriers may not have the time necessary to fill enough sand bags. But the advantages over sandbags that our grids have is the speed at which an area can be installed for protection. The environmental impact of switching to Geo Ground Grids for soil erosion prevention is drastic.


     

    2-Inch Geo Ground Grid: can hold only pedestrian traffic and can be used up to 10-15 degrees in slope.

    4-Inch Geo Ground Grid: can hold vehicle loads (with gravel only) and can be used up to 33 degrees of slope.

    8-Inch Geo Ground Grid: can be used for any vehicle  traffic and all slope percentages up to 45 degrees. Primary application of this grid is for retaining walls.

    We offer 2 product lines of ground stabilizers that serve primarily the same purpose. Understanding their differences will guide you in choosing the most ideal for your project.

    Height & Load Bearing:

    • Geo Ground Grids are designed with focus on containing the aggregate that is receiving heavy loads and preventing erosion. For this reason, the grids have more height and it's focal point is tensile strength. (Height Options: 2-inch, 4-inch, 8-inch)
    • Permeable Pavers are designed with focus on withstanding the heavy loads themselves, and the aggregate is there just for consistency with the surrounding terrain. For this reason, the pavers are a thicker plastic and require less height. (Height Options: Hex = 1-inch / Easy = 2-inch)

    Compatible Aggregates

    • Geo Ground Grids can use any aggregate for erosion control purposes, but only gravel can be used for vehicle loads or heavier. A gravel base is also required.
    • Permeable Pavers can use any aggregate for any situation, including for vehicle loads. A fine gravel or sand base is optional with the pavers, but is recommended for the most ideal install.

    Installation

    • Geo Ground Grids are best for large-scale projects that have rectangular shapes. The grids cut easy for specific sizes.
    • Permeable Pavers are best for smaller-scale projects that have non-standard shapes. The 3 square foot grids provide easier customizability for your project. Less base, aggregate, and configuration means that these grids are the quickest install of the two.


    If you're interested in knowing the slope of your yard for choosing the right Geo Ground Grid, this is the simplest method to do so:

    What You'll Need:

    - 2 Stakes
    - 40 inches minimum of string
    - Level
    - Measuring Tape/Ruler

    Steps:
    1. Insert the stakes into your sloped terrain 40 inches apart. Make sure the stakes are parallel with the direction of slope. (The 40 inch distance is called your run) If your sloped area has significant changes in slope, measure at where the slope is the steepest.

    2Tie your string to the higher stake right at where the stake enters the ground.

    3. Tie the other end of the string to the lower stake so that the string looks level. Keep the knot on this end looser so that the string can be adjusted later on.

    4. Use your level to ensure that your string is perfectly leveled. If not leveled, adjust the string from where it's tied at the lower stake until it is.

    5. Measure the distance on the lower stake from the string to the ground beneath it. (This measurement is your rise and should be in inches as well)

    6. To calculate the slope percentage of your land, follow this equation: %Slope = (Rise/Run) x 100

    Erosion problems? Our Geo Ground Grid Paver is the solution. This erosion control system is made of Polyethylene and has a lifetime warranty. We supply three sizes (heights) of Geo Ground Grid:

     

    2” geo grid – for home/landscaping/gardening applications. Often used for walking pathways.

    4” geo grid – for heavier loads, like parking pads, driveways, hill sides, shallow retaining walls and common erosion problems.

    8” geo grid – for steep erosion control, driveways (filled with 3/4" and larger gravel), retaining walls.

     

    Sections come with 8.4 x 19.7 ft size (164.5 sq ft) and can be easily stretched and anchored down to the ground. Then, simply fill the geo ground grid with material that’s suitable to your application, such as soil, sand, crushed gravel, or large gravel and compact it.

     

     OUR GEO WEB CAN BE ALSO USED FOR:

     

    Installing different kinds of pavement cushions, reinforcement of slopes and fixation of splays, strengthening of coast and coastal areas and etc.

    Fixing the slope cones of railways, construction of retaining walls, driveways, parking, spaces and more.

    The usage of this Geo Ground Grid Paver considerably reduces construction costs and increases the reliability and integrity of many structures.
