The difference between a drain membrane and porous landscape fabric

In drainage applications such as land drains, porous landscape fabrics are sometimes misused by landscapers. Additionally, DIY enthusiasts may become frustrated when the porous fabric they thought would have effective drainage properties fails to drain water instantly. Here’s why both situations described above require a drain membrane.

Is Groundtex permeable?

Is Groundtex permeable?

In summary, Groundtex is a permeable geotextile as water can filter through the fabric and soak into the ground below. While, Groundtex woven geo fabric is a permeable geotextile, it cannot be used as a drainage membrane – for example in applications that require the geotextile to wrap soakaway crates. For this reason, Groundtex geotextile is best suited for applications that require superior ground stabilisation and effective weed suppression, alongside supporting drainage systems in preventing the occurrence of waterlogging.
