Why You Need Geotextiles
The “pumping action” caused by repeated wheel loading causes rock base and soil to intermix, weakening the structural base. Without a solid base, the pavement flexes and breaks up.
Geotextile prevents intermixing of soil and rock base, retaining full rock section for maximum structural support. Reduced rock requirements and lower maintenance costs more than offset the cost of geotextile.
