No one likes muddy, boggy ground

No one likes muddy, boggy ground.  Its messy, slippy, unattractive and can be dangerous.  It’s never a good day if you get your car stuck on the grass. 

But with all this wet weather saturating the ground, what is the answer? How do you keep your holiday park looking nice and running smoothly without losing all of your grass to concrete or tarmac?  Is there a solution that won’t cost the earth!
Fortunately, yes there is. Several in fact. TERRAM products are used to protect and reinforce grass surfaces that are trafficked.  Easily installed onto bare soil or grass, they will help reduce grass wear, abrasion and rutting. 

TERRAM is a market leader in the design and manufacturer of innovative geosynthetics including geocomposites, geotextiles and geocells. We supply a range of plastic pavers and mesh products which are ideal for constructing stable, natural-looking areas where you have vehicle and pedestrian traffic. These products ensure that soft grassed areas remain healthy and are able to recover from damage to the crown. 

We have temporary grass protection products where occasional grass protection is required, so if for example you need to transform grassland into a temporary overflow car park then we have the products to help you. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a longer-term solution then we have products that can be used with gravels to provide a hard-landscaped effect.
Our most popular products for caravan, campsites and holiday parks are:
