The landslides in the field often do not have an infinite length, making 3-dimensional assumptions more appropriate for the design. Meanwhile, they are mostly analyzed in design by assuming the landslides occur infinitely with plane strain in a 2- dimensional approach. This assumption becomes less precise due to the consideration of the safety factor based on 2-dimensional conditions while the landslide happens 3-dimensional, and this has further effects on the need for reinforcement. This research was conducted to determine the level of influence 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional landslide safety factors have on the number of reinforcements required. A limit equilibrium method was used in the study. The number of geotextile reinforcement needs with a 3- dimensional sliding model is calculated based on existing research results. The results are then compared with the amount of geotextile reinforcement required with a 2-dimensional sliding model. The results showed the possibility of having the same amount of reinforcement under 2-D and 3-D assumptions in the homogeneous soil, while different results were found with heterogeneous soil layers due to the variations in soil conditions. Comparison of the number of geotextile reinforcement requirements between 2 dimensions and three dimensions still needs to be further developed by using more varied soil data. This is done considering that existing studies are only limited to soil, which tends to be homogeneous.
