Geosynthetics are synthetic materials used with soil or rock in many types of construction. They perform three major functions: separation, reinforcement, and drainage. This report describes several types of geosynthetics; explains basic geosynthetic design concepts for trail construction in wet areas; and provides information about geosynthetic products. Detailed product specifications and procurement sources are listed.
