Economical Solutions To Prevent Erosion Caused By Surface Runoff
GEOWEB® geocells are an economical solution for erosion control. The 3-dimensional GEOWEB® structure holds the upper soil layer on the slope and prevents washout from water action or other erosive forces. In sandy soils, subject to wind erosion, the GEOWEB® system helps retain soils until vegetation has a chance to establish itself. On steeper slopes, the GEOWEB® system can help to hold embankment soils in place.
Why Use Geoweb For Slope And Channel Protection?
Resists Sheet Flow Erosion
Confined infill in the GEOWEB® cell structure is unaffected by sheet flow over the surface, preventing erosion.
Creates Stable Growth Environment
The GEOWEB® 3D cellular network isolates each cell to create an eco-zone protected from erosive forces.
Builds Steeper Slopes
Stabilization of the slope surface materials allows embankments to be constructed steeper.
- Cellular confinement holds infill materials in place
- Creates a flexible pavement to protect against erosion
- Can be filled with clear stone, gravel, soil (vegetated), or concrete
- Textured cell wall helps hold infill
- Holes in cell walls promote drainage
Stabilize the upper soil layer on embankments with the 3D GEOWEB® Slope Protection System to resist sliding, prevent severe erosion caused by surface runoff, and allow steeper slopes to be built.

Low impact Development Strategies using Geosynthetic Materials
Low Impact Development (LID) strategies have transitioned from suggestions to requirements in recent years, presenting new design challenges for engineers. This technical presentation will discuss common design elements for LID applications and how innovative products can be incorporated to increase effectiveness, reduce maintenance requirements and increase system life expectancy. Presented by Daniel Lotufo and Amy Woods, Layfield Geosynthetics.
