Geosynthetics use in earthworks has been widely accepted as an additional material to strengthen unstable soil-structures. Geosynthetics are a promising alternative to be used for repairs, accelerations, savings in construction related to soil, as if geosynthetics are a "magic pill" that can solve all geotechnical problems instantly. One form of geosynthetic is geotextile as a reinforcement and holding the ground. This study aims to analyze the effect of length (Bq), depth (d) and distance configuration (h) of each geotextile layer on variations in loading (q) and density variations that provide maximum carrying capacity. The research was testing the physical model in the laboratory, this test was carried out with and without geotextile reinforcement on soil media. Examin[ation and characteristic checks are carried out in the Soil Mechanics Laboratory of the Civil Engineering Department. The results show that the placement of geotextile layers can contribute to changing the mechanical characteristics of the reinforced soil, more optimal L/B distance and closer h/B distance, this increases the carrying capacity of the soil under shallow foundations and reduces the settlement that occurs (higher carrying capacity
