Jute Mesh for North Turramatta Water Catchment Project
Southern Cross Aged Care, North Turramurra
Our customer created a natural water catchment area for a North Turramurra aged care facility.
By using EROmasta jute mesh along with natural stone and plantings, the catchment within Southern Cross Care maintains a natural aesthetic in keeping with the bushland surrounds.
Southern Cross Care at North Turramurra recently received a $33M upgrade, with a complete new care facility built as well as the renovation of an 1800’s homestead located on the site. As part of the upgrade which was completed in late 2019, Southern Cross Care required extensive landscaping that suited the protected ironbark and blue gum forest that borders the site.
Our customer, an established commercial landscaping firm, was engaged to complete landscaping works, including the construction of a new water catchment.
Using EROmasta jute material and natural stone, the contractor ensured the area was adequately stabilised for periods of heavy rain. The area will be planted out using native grasses to create a natural-looking water catchment area.
The contractor used 3 rolls of EROmasta jute mesh, a fully biodegradable organic product. Specifically designed to act as an erosion control mat, jute mesh creates an environment which promotes rapid natural plant growth.
It is ideal for installation on a levelled soil subgrade and is easy to roll out and install, by simply laying it over the terrain without applying tension as seen here. Overlapping each roll of the mesh by around 100mm ensures good coverage and stability.
This 485gsm jute mesh is ideal for applications such as grass establishment, coastal areas, wetlands and natural revegetation. Each roll measures 1.2 metres wide x 68 metres long, enabling quick and easy coverage of large areas.
