Grass geocomposites on the basis of biodegradive nonwoven textile materials with combination of powdered superabsorbent, sowing seeds (perennial sorts of grass) and filmforming polymer for creation of lawn in real soil conditions have been developed.
Study of these geocomposites by vegetation experiments was conducted.
The influence of the soil type and variants on the geranimation, vegetation and development of biomass has been investigated.
Optimal variants in respects of the possibility for development of grass cover and obtaining of suitable antierosive protection have been selected.
Key words: geocomposition, antierosive protection, soil
