Filter Geotextile

Typical retaining wall use is to separate soil fill from drainage stone to prevent clogging of drainage stone with fine particles. We recommend these minimum properties for normal retaining wall applications. Multiple sizes available.

Production Information

Environmentally Friendly
RidgeScape® provides an aesthetic eco-friendly solution when space is at a premium and a grade change is required to accommodate challenging site requirements.

Natural Beauty
RidgeScape’s Reinforced Earth System allows construction of exceptionally strong, durable retaining walls that over time naturally blend into the surrounding ecological landscape.

Flexible
RidgeScape’s multiple slope angles with varying finishes meet most any requirement. Capable of heights of 60 feet or more.

Adaptive
RidgeScape® can adapt to various soil conditions. Using onsite soils in most cases, RidgeScape® can absorb total and differential settlement variations without compromise to structural stability or aesthetics.

Lower Cost
RidgeScape® is less costly than other earth-retaining systems without sacrifice of safety or structural integrity.

Faster Installation
RidgeScape® baskets cover 15 square feet each requiring less time for facing installation, resulting in lower construction costs and faster installations.

Vegetated Wire Facing

Vegetated Wire Facing is the best solution for slopes of mid-range steepness where vegetation is desired.

  • For slopes from 1H:1V to 1H:3V steepness
  • Black steel wire baskets used for vegetation.
  • Black steel support struts to maintain facing stability during and after construction.
  • AGridLok® Primary Geogrid to reinforce the soil.
  • Vegetated after and/or during the installation of the wire baskets.
  • GridLok® 20B Geogrid is wrapped inside the basket to confine soil while allowing vegetation to germinate.

Rock Wire Facing

Rock Wire Facing is the best solution when space constraints do not allow for a milder slope steepness that would support vegetation.

  • For slopes 1H:3V to near-vertical steepness
  • Proprietary galvanized steel baskets with smaller openings for prolonged survivability in most any environment.
  • Galvanized steel support struts that equal the longevity of the baskets.
  • GridLok®  Primary Geogrid to reinforce the soil.
  • Angular Rip-Rap quarry rock behind the baskets provides erosion protection and a complete resistance to natural elements for the lifetime of the structure.
  • Non-Woven filter fabric for separation between the rock facing and the retained soils.

TRM Facing

Turf Reinforcement Mat Facing is the best solution for maintaining the integrity of gentler slopes.

  • For slopes with a steepness of 1H:1V or less
  • GridLok® Primary Geogrid is used to reinforce the soil.
  • GridLok® 20B Secondary Geogrid is used for facing stability and a compaction aid.
  • Turf Reinforcement Matting (TRM) is placed over the finished slope face for erosion control.
  • Vegetation grows through the matting for permanent erosion control.
