fibreturf-rootzoneFibre Rootzone comprises of a blend of silica sand, organic matter and 35mm long polypropylene fibres which produce a homogeneous rootzone.

Silica Sand ensures that water and rainfall is able to drain away to prevent water logging. A variety of silica grades are available to suits a variety of applications.

Organic Matter provides the required nutrients for healthy grass growth as well as preserving moisture – essential during dry periods. This is usually derived from an optimum mix of soil and ‘green waste’ compost.

Polypropylene fibres provide strength for the grass roots in all directions. Being rot proof, they protect the natural grass roots. They help the surface resist compaction and deformation. This is vital in areas of heavy or demanding foot traffic-such as sports surfaces, or where vehicle may have access. Fibre Rootzone also helps maintain optimal growth conditions for the grass and preserves the look of the turf.

Supplied in bulk tippers, Fibre Rootzone should be laid as the top 75-200mm, dependant on end use, thus producing a fibre reinforced or stabilised upper rootzone. The natural turf finish is then produced by either seeding directly into the Fibre Rootzone or laying turf.
