The project is a natural turf sports pitch in Sheffield which was to be surrounded by an environmentally and ecologically friendly 1.5m high bund. The angle of the bund slopes is approx 45° and their stability was
a concern because of the shear strength of the soil used. A good quality granular material was too costly to use.

TGBS, which comprises a range of grades from the TERRAM Geocell system, was used to enhance the stability and confinement of the infill material. A low quality granular mix was chosen for its free draining yet compactable qualities. TERRAM Geocell 35/10 was used on the surface of the bund, confining the topsoil, and hence providing the right conditions for eventual seeding
