Golpla® Grass & Gravel Reinforcement
Golpla® is designed to retain gravel and reinforce grass for a wide range of applications. Manufactured to interlock with hooks and eyes, this assists the installer in maintaining line and level for a simple installation. The system is ideal for general trafficking use and for all forms of architectural landscaping. The configuration of hexagonal cells coupled with the use of high-density plastics allows for a reduction of wall thickness, resulting in a high-strength structure, which is visually unobtrusive: 95% of the surface area available for infill.

Golpla® Pre-Grown system
Encouraging grass growth is essential to success. Uniquely within the grass reinforcement industry, Geosynthetics Ltd supply units Pre-Grown with established grass. Produced to order, Golpla® Pre-Grown contains 4 types of grass as standard but can be made-to-order with specific varieties to suit any application (terms and conditions apply). Orders for Golpla® Pre-Grown are processed to synchronise with the site installation schedules so that the right quantities of palletised product are available.
In a matter of weeks (not months as with seed) Golpla® Pre-Grown is ready for use. It helps contractors to complete the work faster and gives clients the instant aesthetics from day one.
Golpla® Pre-Grown is only available in units’ size 640mm x 330m x 38mm deep and can be used for conventional installations, as well as the Golpla® Quicklay® solution.
- Mature grass from day one
- Reduces construction time
- Can be installed all year round
- Ready for use in shorter time frames
- Reduces post installation maintenance
Golpla® Quicklay® solution
Developed by Geosynthetics Ltd to reduce sub-base depths. Sites must be for occasional use with firm, well-draining ground and a high CBR strength (6-8%). Engineering advice is available.
Quicklay® construction requires minimal excavation, often just the existing surface vegetation and some topsoil. This can be used on site instead of removal to tip and reduces disposal costs.
The Quicklay® Geogrid is installed beneath a coarse grit sand or Rootzone. Golpla® units are then positioned, secured and filled with soil and seed, a 6-10mm angular gravel or alternatively Golpla® Pre-Grown units. Depending on the layout, the edges can be retained by back filling with soil or held in place with treated timbers.
- Great for occasional use areas
- Minimal surface excavation
- Reduced construction depths and installation time
- Cost savings on disposal of waste
- Minimal maintenance
