General geotextiles can be used for many drainage requirements

Geotextiles are used in the construction of pavements, roads and permeable paving installations to separate different layers of angular stone, ensuring that the trafficked surface remains stabilised.

Terram geotextiles allow filtration and separation of granular layers in roads, pavements, driveways, porous pavers, decking and patio construction allowing water through but stopping fine particles. Terram geotextiles are manufactured from permeable non-woven needle punch fabrics, at A R Richarrd we stock both options.  Geotextiles are supplied on rolls from 2.25m wide up to 4.5m wide.
