Reinforced Sports Field Parking
When part of the land used for car parking at Rothwell Leisure Centre was re-allocated to be used for much needed housing for the elderly, a new parking area capable of providing up to 50 car parking spaces had to be created.
A grassed field adjacent to the sports pitches was chosen. It had a gentle slope and a strong established grass growth. The new car parking area needed to be used only two or three times a week and mainly during the autumn and winter months. The grass cover was to be maintained and the area should not look out of place with the surrounding countryside.
A proposal was made to use Grass Reinforcement Mesh with a special supporting geogrid plastic mesh underneath. Both products were laid at the same time directly onto the existing grass and pinned onto the ground. The entire installation was carried out over several days.
After the plastic grass mesh had been installed, the grass was left for a while to allow it to entangle with the mesh filaments. The car parking area was ready to be used within a few weeks and now provides a firm, practical grass car parking surface for parents to drop off and pickup players or stay and watch the football and rugby matches.
This car parking area meets the expectations of the customer at difficult times of the year and at an affordable cost. By combining Grass Reinforcement Mesh and the special geogrid support mesh together an enhanced and stronger surface can withstand the loading and usage of numerous vehicles.
