Details: SANDMAT - ¿How To Make Your Own Sandy Beach?
So, you’re ready to make a sandy beach. It will look great, the kids can play in it, maybe put some beach chairs down by the water, it’ll be nice.
Thing is, once you spread all that lovely, new sand - it will kill everything beneath it, grass, weeds, everything. Sounds okay, until you realize the grass and weeds hold your shore together, their root systems are nature’s retaining walls. Your shore will start eroding — unless you take steps to stop it.
Why You Want SandMats
Rain and snowmelt drains toward your lake, cutting mini-Grand Canyons in the sand. When there’s no longer any grass or weeds, the soil erodes and mixes with your sand. You can either add more sand, year after year — or use SandMats
SandMats are designed to hold soil in place and let water drain through. The specialized geotextile fabric is also a separation barrier, preventing dirt from mixing with your sand.
SandMat fabric looks like thick, black felt. They come 12.5-feet wide and 20- to 100-feet long. You can cut and fold it if you want. Lay your SandMat down, stake it (plastic stakes provided) then spread sand, 3” to 6” inches deep.
What Not To Use
Plastic tarps. They hold water, your beach will be a soupy mess. Tarps are slippery, sand slides off and erodes quicker than if you’d used nothing. You’ll see the tarp wherever the sand has slid off - and eventually, someone will slip and fall on it.
Don’t use landscape fabric. It’s thin, weak, narrow, doesn’t hold or separate soil - and it rots. SandMats are 10 times thicker, 50 times stronger, over three times wider - and last at least 50 years
There are lots of other tips in the SandMat instructions to stop erosion, suppress weeds and keep your beach looking great.
