Re: New Geotextile Runway

The major advantage for monofiliments in construction is the high water flow rates, no other geotextile can match them for that. The UV stability is added in special circumstances as most geotextiles are buried (therefore the term geo and textile) and don't require it.
If you guys are interested, try giving my company (Layfield) a call. They are located in Vaughan, not sure if they'll have stock of it though since it's a pretty specialized product. We sell mostly non-woven and slit tape woven, neither of which are UV stable and will only last 5-7 years exposed before the strength starts to really go on them.
As a note, those small staples should be ok but you may find that some of them are pushed out of the ground over the winter due to freeze / thaw cycles, make sure that you inspect them next spring. Another option to those small ones are erosion control stables that are 6-8" long. Also, on the edges, the best way to anchor them would be to dig a trench with a mini hoe, put the textile in it then backfill and compact. Not sure how much that would cost though.
