Fleximas Grass & Ground Reinforcement Range: Perfect for adding extra stability to unpaved ground used to store or site and of course move motorhomes. The Fleximas range of grass and ground reinforcement products is one of the widest available in the UK, enabling existing grass spaces to be utilised without causing rutting, sinking or smearing of the grass by a wide range of traffic. These meshes offer a relatively low cost method of utilising existing grass spaces for car parking and pedestrian access. Fleximas Grass Reinforcement products are used as part of sustainable urban drainage systems and are an ideal alternative to non-permeable solid surfaces which are expensive and also tend to lead to flash flood run-off, or indeed where the appearance of natural grass traffic routes and driveways is preferred. Our product selector chart below will give you a broad overview and we would be pleased to hear from you if you have any specific queries or issues. Please do also check out our 'brief guide to selecting a mesh' section below. NB: All the recommendations for rolled material are based on the use of u-pins / ground-pins to add strength. These are used in varying amounts depending on conditions and use but often about every metre. Some customers use pins obtained locally from builders merchants but we recommend using the Fleximas items of course.
Minimum order value for all Flexi is £75
Practical information: A guide to choosing Mesh for Motorhome use: I'd like to tell you there is a simple rule based on motorhome weight but regrettably it isn't like that. All ground-works depend on an assessment of the ground type and condition so we can only give you a guide. You can seek professional advice and doubtless they will give you good advice but with a fair degree of - costly - safety margin built in.
Questions an advisor might ask (without doing CBR checks) would include ... Has the ground been driven and walked on for many years and is well compacted? ... Is it a field that has been ploughed and just recently turned into a car park? ... Is the ground well drained? ... Is it on a slope with the ground damp in one area and dry in another? ... Is there a river that floods nearby? ... Is there a gateway that all the traffic funnels through? ... Is the traffic volume light or heavy or just occasional? ... What weight are the vehicles? Inevitably then choosing a mesh depends on the answers to all those questions.
Guidance from an expert suggests ...
The Heavy Duty Mesh is described as "a heavier duty HDPE grass protection mesh, with UV additive which has been produced specifically for protection of grassy areas from heavy duty traffic, such as trucks and cars. The mesh protects grass roots from damage and helps to prevent rutting. For successful use, it is essential that the grass is allowed to grow through the mesh before use to ensure that the surface is safe and strong. • Heavy Duty HDPE, UV stabilised and rot resistant • Grass grows through and intertwines with the mesh to create a strong surface • Natural appearance – the mesh becomes invisible once the grass has grown through • Suitable for overflow car parks, light aircraft runways, grass paths and caravan parks.
Conclusion? For a motorhome start thinking around the Heavy Duty Grass Reinforcement Mesh FM5162. Also remember that area counts so do lay a generous patch with wide trackways and do pin down with u-pins (right) according to the instructions.
Flexipave and Flexiweb are different - they are permeable 'pavers' that will grow grass and so are laid on a sub-base as with all pavers. The depth and nature of the sub-base decides the weight of vehicle that can be taken without the paver sinking - up to 250 tonnes - but again there is flexibility "if the ground is firm it can be skimmed to the depth of the paver, a geotextile put down, and a small amount of topsoil put down with the pavers on top filled with soil & Grass seed/Turf or Stone" - a top notch motorhome solution.
FlexiPave is incredibly versatile: This interlocking ground and
grass reinforcement product is successfully used in an enormous range of
applications, including construction sites, green car parking areas,
private lanes and access roads (including emergency access), pathways
and drives, golf courses, landscapes, equestrian and livestock
facilities, green roof and rooftop gardens, river and road embankments,
private airfields to say nothing of motorhome parking, boat moorings and
Sizes: Most Mesh is available in whole rolls of 10m rolls in both 1m & 2m widths, these can be cut down to make two 5m strips (remember though that narrow strips have little load bearing capacity other than on firm ground). The mesh can be cut to size with a pair of secateurs or other heavy duty cutters. Flexipave is different - made up of 33cm interlocking tiles so ideally suited to odd shapes.
