Location: Lower Harglodd Farm, St Davids SA62 6BX

Product: GR14 Grass Reinforcement Mesh 

Car Parking Issue

Well known scientist and naturalist, Dr Sarah Benyon, wanted to open a centre dedicated to the enlightenment of the marvels of bugs and insects. Dr Benyon had, a while ago, purchased a farm in the picturesque area of St Davids in SW Wales to develop this idea. Whist Sarah wanted to attract as many visitors as possible what was not wanted was to lay tarmac or concrete for car parking. The centre is set in many acres in a beautiful and protected part of South Wales so planning for hardstanding car parking spaces, apart from being completely out of keeping with the settings and character of the centre, was likely to be difficult at best.

Car Parking Solution

The client wanted a solution that maintained a grass cover and so in keeping with and not out of place with the surrounding countryside. So the solution proposed to meet the demands of the client was GR14 Grass Reinforcement Mesh. A grass field was selected that was suitable regarding access, location and drainage. The GR14 mesh was directly laid onto the existing grass and pinned onto the ground. The entire installation was done over several days.

Benefits of using Grass Reinforcement Mesh

The customer now has an overflow car park that they can call upon at peak times. The Grass Reinforcement mesh was installed at a fraction of the cost and disturbance of installing hardstanding car parking.  Also no extra drainage was needed and the installation was in keeping with SUDS (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems), with all the water percolating into the natural aquifer and no runoff. The combination of the GR14 Grass Reinforcement Mesh and the special support mesh together gave an enhanced and stronger footprint that enabled the area to withstand the required workloads.The plastic reinforcement mesh spreads the weight of vehicles and other traffic and protects the grass roots, limiting grass wear, rutting and the resultant muddy car park.
