The three-dimensional lateral confinement of the Ecoweb™ system along with anchoring techniques ensures the long-term stability of slopes using vegetated topsoil, aggregate or concrete surfacing. The enhanced drainage, frictional forces and cell-soil-plant interation of Ecoweb™ prevent downslope movement and limits the impact of raindrops, channeling and hydraulic shear stresses.
The Ecoweb™ Geocells provide steep vertical mechanically stabilized earth structures (either gravity or reinforced walls) for steep faces, walls and irregular topography. This structure is able to retain the earth behind it by virtue of its weight. Local soil can be used for infill when suitable and granular, while the outer faces enable a green or tan fascia of the horizontal terraces/rows utilizing topsoil.
