What is the purpose of the geotextile membrane?

The geotextile membrane separates two materials of different nature in order to prevent them from mixing and causing degradation of your work (such as soil and crushed stone).

The geotextile membrane allows for better filtration and drainage. It collects, channels and transports fluids, thus controlling the water content of your landscape.

Thanks to its mechanical properties, the geotextile resists stresses and limits the deformations undergone by structures, thus stabilizing and/or increasing the bearing capacity of the soil.
