Geo tile fabric is used to form a bridge. Or a membrane. It\\\'s used to keep the aggregate from intermixing with the soil.

The grid you folks used under the granite is doing absolutely nothing. It is not stabilizing and soil. Grid has it\\\'s strength in one direction as that is where pressure is apPlied when the block pulls on it.

I\\\'m new to hardscapes and trying to learn as much as I can. I understand that you are saying that grid is not used to \\\"reinforce soil\\\", but by \\\"keep the block in place\\\" are you saying that it is used to hold the block in place?
