Military-Tested for Your Backyard

The same geocell used to handle tanks and other heavy-duty vehicles can support whatever project you have. If soldiers and armed forces rely on our durable ground grid kits, they can support your shed, playset, or carport too. BaseCore is made from thick, high-density polyethylene (HDPE) plastic and is built to last. You can get 60 years out of the product and reuse it for a different location if you want to start over.

How to Install BaseCore Geocells

Prepare Your Base

Remove any large rock or debris. Lay the BaseCore™ on top of the ground and dig approximately 4-5” to make the BaseCore™ flush with the surrounding ground. Or, utilize a border around the outside edges of the BaseCore™ geocell to protect the edges from being exposed.
