Ground Protection Mats: Shielding Your Lawn

Ground protection mats are a great way to shield your lawn from damage caused by foot traffic, heavy equipment, or parked vehicles. They’re particularly useful during construction projects, landscaping work, or when you need to create a temporary pathway.

Benefits of Protection Mats:

Here are some of the benefits of using ground protection mats for your lawn:

  • Prevent compaction:The mats distribute the weight of heavy objects over a larger area, preventing the soil from becoming compacted. Compacted soil can hinder drainage and root growth, making it difficult for grass to thrive.
  • Minimize ruts and holes: Foot traffic and equipment can create unsightly ruts and holes in your lawn. Ground protection mats create a stable surface that prevents the soil from being gouged or rutted.
  • Protect grass from wear and tear: Heavy traffic can wear down your lawn, making it patchy and brown. Ground protection mats create a barrier between your grass and the source of the wear and tear.
  • Mud control:Ground protection mats can help to control mud by providing a stable surface that prevents soil from being tracked around. This can be especially helpful during wet weather conditions.

Types of Grass Protection Mats:

There are two main categories of the mats, each with its own advantages:

  • Mesh Mats: These mats are constructed from a strong, yet lightweight plastic or geotextile mesh. They provide excellent weight distribution and are ideal for high-traffic areas like walkways or driveways. Mesh mats allow for good water permeability, ensuring healthy grass growth.
  • Plastic Grass Protection Mats: These mats are typically made of heavy-duty plastic with a grid-like structure. They offer superior load-bearing capacity and are suitable for areas with heavy vehicle traffic or concentrated weight, such as under car tires or heavy equipment. Some plastic mats have a hollow design on the underside, further enhancing drainage and promoting healthy grass growth.

How to Choose the Right Ground Mats?

There are a few different factors to consider when choosing ground protection mats for your lawn, such as:

  • The weight of the equipment that will be using the mats Mats come in a variety of thicknesses and strengths. Choose mats that are thick and strong enough to support the weight of the equipment that will be using them.
  • The amount of traffic that will be using the mats If you expect a lot of traffic, you’ll need to choose mats that are durable and can withstand wear and tear.
  • The size of the area that you need to cover Ground protection mats come in a variety of sizes. Choose mats that will cover the entire area that you need to protect.

Additional Costs to Consider:

Beyond the mat itself, there might be additional costs to consider:

  • Installation: If you opt for professional installation, expect to pay an hourly rate or a flat fee depending on the complexity of the project.
  • Ground Preparation: If the area requires preparation, such as leveling or removing debris, this will incur additional costs.

Tips for Saving Money on Protection Mats:

  1. Compare Prices: Shop around from various retailers and online stores to find the best deals.
  2. Consider DIY Installation: If you’re handy, installing the mats yourself can save on labor costs.
  3. Purchase in Bulk: If you need multiple mats, consider buying in bulk to potentially qualify for discounts.
  4. Look for Sales and Promotions: Keep an eye out for seasonal sales, clearance events, or promotional offers from retailers.

How to Install the Protection Mats Step by Step?

How to Install

Before You Begin:

  1. Gather your tools: You’ll need a utility knife, tape measure, gloves, a level (optional), a mallet (optional), and a sharp spade or edging tool (optional).
  2. Measure the area: Carefully measure the area where you plan to install the mat. Purchase enough mats to cover the entire area with some overlap for edges.
  3. Prepare the ground: The success of your installation depends on a properly prepared base. Here’s what to do:
    • Clear the area: Remove any existing vegetation, debris, or rocks from the installation site. Aim for a clean, level surface.
    • Edge the area (optional): If you want a clean and defined border for your grass protection mat, use a sharp spade or edging tool to create a neat edge around the perimeter. This step is particularly helpful for curved edges or areas with existing landscaping features.
    • Level the ground (optional): Uneven surfaces can affect the mat’s stability and appearance. Use a rake or shovel to level the ground as much as possible. However, some minor imperfections won’t significantly impact the functionality of the mat.
