Its a mesh netting used for retaining wall applications. It is generally used for block walls over 3 ft in height. Its usually used in 6 ft. strips, and placed on top of a row of wall block and extended into the "backfill" area behind the wall. Geo-grid acts like a "deadman" so to speak, and helps hold the wall in place. Once you lay it into the backfill area... you can fill dirt onto the grid and compact... its is VERY expensive, so make sure you figure it into your jobs an extra if it is needed.
