Grass Reinforcement Mesh at Norwich School

Grass Reinforcement Mesh at Norwich School

Requirement: 1280m2 Grass Car Park

Client: Norwich School

Location: Norwich


Norwich School is an independent, co-educational day school for pupils between the ages of four and eighteen.   The school is in the historic Cathedral Close district of Norwich. 

The school is undergoing some new / upgrading building works and existing car parking has been taken over by the building contractor.   A particular problem was for the pickup and dropping off area for the pupils.

With the lack of suitable sites in the surrounding area, restrictive planning issues and coupled with the sensitivity of the site, a necessary solution was required. The solution needed to be installed quickly, and at a cost that was acceptable.


It was agreed, to use Grass Reinforcement Heavy installed by Grassmats Limited. 

This was decided after taking into consideration soil and drainage conditions and the expected frequency of use. Once the Grass Reinforcement had become entangled with the grass, would become almost invisible.  The matting did not need planning and was installed by the Grassmats installation team over a  weekend, to not interfere with the day to day running of the school.   

Grassmats were able to deliver and install the rolls two weeks after the initial contact was made. 


The school now has a reinforced grass car parking area which can be used all year round for the pickup and dropping off the pupils.  The area now can provide up to 70 car parking spaces and was installed for a fraction of the cost that a traditional tarmac or gravel car park would cost. 

There was also no extra drainage requirements and no planning difficulties.  The grass car park is very much in keeping with the surroundings and the long-term ethos of the school.
