During the development of new housing it is important to identify solutions that enable developers to make use of available land while meeting the homeowners’ expectations of pleasant surroundings. With increasing environmental pressures, solutions that utilise materials to promote a green infrastructure are also becoming more desirable.
Greenfix offers a range of products that can be used to tackle the many environmental and structural requirements of the house building industry.
Slope and Embankment Stabilisation
Greenfix’s range of pre-seeded and unseeded biodegradable meshes and blankets can be used to cover the majority of slopes and embankments. For more challenging applications, Greenfix can supply permanent turf reinforcement mats.
Vegetated Retaining Walls
Greenfix offers a range of vegetated solutions for gravity walls and retaining structures, providing a natural appearance in contrast to harder landscaping systems. Greenfix can work with clients to provide design solutions for retaining walls, including geogrid reinforcement where appropriate.
Tree Root Protection
Where there may be site restrictions due to existing trees and “no dig” zones, Greenfix will work to ensure that soil compaction caused by on site traffic is minimised using our bespoke bulk density calculations. Our “no dig” solution, Geoweb® for Tree Root Protection, is in line with control measures outlined in BS5837/2012 and APN12.
Root and Weed Control
Greenfix offers root barriers suitable for Japanese Knotweed and other invasive species, as well as tree root diversion. In addition, Greenfix provides products that provide natural coir mulching with degradable weed control.
