Where an attractive, completely natural look is preferred, or in environmentally-sensitive areas, TensarTech NaturalGreen is a versatile and cost-effective slope solution for slope face angles up to 45˚. The system easily lends itself to the repair of slip failures, in addition to the formation of new steep slopes.
With the provision for long-term structural stability granted by horizontal layers of Tensar uniaxial geogrids within the reinforced soil mass, the system uses erosion protection material and natural vegetation rather than a rigid or formal face and consequently is very rapid and simple to build in typical situations. While also protecting the slope from heavy rainfall, the erosion control measure aids in the retention of the new topsoil and then aids establishment of surface vegetation and in doing so reinforces the root zone to maintaine an attractive finish.
The use of site-won fill including cohesive or contaminated materials is allowed for by the very high durability of Tensar uniaxial geogrid reinforcement, which can lead to highly substantial cost savings and reduced transport movements both on- and off-site.
Tensartech NaturalGreen makes it easy to find the complete solution from just one source, too. Using our sophisticated TensarSoil software, our team of experienced engineers can provide everything from free application suggestions, all the way up to a full design and supply service that includes Professional Indemnity insurance cover. For steeper slope faces, TensarTech GreenSlope provide the solution.
