How long does Conwed 'Oxygrid' take to degrade ?
Conwed 'Oxygrid' is designed to degrade over a period of around 36 months. In our own experience, when harvesting turf at approx 10 months, the netting would already be noticably weaker, but still retain sufficient strength to reinforce the turf for successfull harvesting.

However, 'Oxygrid' is a naturally-degrading product which is affected by heat, light and moisture and as weather conditions can vary from year to year, it is not possible for Conwed to guarantee the precise timing of the degradation.

Growers must carefully monitor netting strength while the turf crop is growing.

What is the difference between 'Oxygrid' and 'Turfnet' ?
'Oxygrid' degrades naturally as described above. 'Turfnet' is a polypropylene netting that does not degrade any faster than many plastic products. It is possible that strands of netting will remain in the soil for a number of years.

Can I collect netting directly from you ?
Certainly - 'Oxygrid' and 'Turfnet' rolls are 5.26 mtrs long x 0.5 mtrs diameter. Each roll weighs 270 kilos. The rolls are very rigid and can be lifted through the end of the roll with a standard forklift if handled carefully.

How is turf reinforcement netting installed ?
A simple tractor-mounted frame can be made to carry the rolls and the netting can be secured to the ground using degradable skewers until the grass has grown enough to secure the netting.

An automatic tractor-mounted net-layer is also available which secures the netting with side-discs which reduces the labour required and enables netting to be installed much faster.
