INTRODUCTION

The most cost effective and environmentally conscience grade separation solution is a 45 degree slope. In applications where narrow property lines are not a concern, building a 1:1 green slope using Nilex’s RSS system gives you a naturally vegetated slope that blends seamlessly into the surrounding landscape.  By incorporating HDPE geogrids, for primary and secondary reinforcement, along with turf reinforcement mats (TRMs) for erosion protection and vegetation establishment, you are able to build on poor soils while settling is still occurring.
