Q: How much overlap does there need to be at seams?
A: Typically from 12” to 18”, but it could more depending on the CBR (California Bearing Ratio) value of the sub-grade soil.

Q: Can we drive directly on the Geogrid?
A: No, you want to push aggregate on it before you drive a loaded vehicle on it.

How to Install Geogrid

  1. Prep your sub-grade and lay down the Geogrid and pin it with sod staples.
  2. Push aggregate on Geogrid being careful to only drive on the aggregate.
