Why sink in sand when you can walk on water? Over thirty years ago, Tensar took on Westminster Levee, using our BX Geogrid to combat extremely saturated site conditions when fabric failed to do the job. This video from 1989 documents our successful installation, showing how crew members used geogrid solutions to turn boggy landscape soils into a solid, stable surface. If you have ever doubted the effectiveness of geogrid, this video proves its many advantages.
Although this Westminster project used BX Geogrid, our continuous innovation and extensive research have led to an even better ground stabilization method: TriAx Geogrid. Compared to geotextiles or flexible grids, Tensar TriAx Geogrids spread road loads over a wider area of subgrade, lessening the impact of heavy loads and reducing installation and maintenance costs.

Is your go to method for soil stabilization actually the fastest or most cost effective? Common methods like fabric, over-excavation and chemical stabilization are actually costing you more that you realize. In this chart, we compare the pros and cons of several techniques and how much aggregate is required. How does your current method stack up?
