Do you find yourself frustrated by cutting membranes because it is such a pain in the neck? Well, it doesn’t have to be.
Geotextile membranes usually come in rolls, especially with big orders. The good thing about being in a roll is that you can cover the ground with membrane quickly by placing it down and just rolling it out. Once you are done and want to cut it off, it could get tricky since it is not an easy material to cut and sometimes you might need to use a thicker membrane, which makes it even harder to cut.
A few problems people tend to struggle with were failing to cut for a clean edge, finding it time-consuming and the woven geotextile fray a lot with strands everywhere.
