Flexible Mud Management Grid
The LSG grid is constructed of flexible HDPE plastic which is able to conform to sloped or uneven surfaces. The material ships compressed in a rectangular form. To install, a layer of Geotextile fabric is laid on the ground in the desired area. Next the grid is staked down and opened in an “accordion-like” fashion. When the grid is opened to its full extent, the opposing side is staked. At this point stakes are driven around the parameter to ensure that the material stays in place and holds its form. Now gravel is added to the material filling the cells. Because the strength of the surface is dependent on the strength of the infill it is essential that the correct size and type of gravel is used. Be sure to view the installation guide for specific instructions on installation and infill instructions.
When correctly installed the LSG grid provides a mud free surface which is stable enough for both regular equestrian and light vehicular (cars and trucks) traffic. Additionally, because the material is permeable the surface will allow water to permeate through and drain provided that the site is able to drain naturally.
When a heavy-duty in-ground mud grid is needed the Paddock Slab is the ideal choice. Paddock slabs are specifically designed for horses but can withstand the but is strong enough to support the full weight of a truck.
Many other hard plastic pavers on the market are primarily designed for vehicles which support equestrian traffic as a secondary usage. These products are designed for car tires which typically provide a load of 135 psi. A hoof in contact with the ground emits 185 psi which can easily cause vehicle-designed pavers to shatter leaving sharp edges and reduced support. Paddock Slabs are specifically designed for equestrian traffic and are ultra-reinforced. To resist shattering, Paddock Slabs are able to flex by more than 10% without breaking.
Paddock Slabs are a great long term solution and provide a reinforced mud-free paddock for decades of regular use.
In-Ground Mud Management Panel
Mud Management Grid placed on top of the ground
The Mud Control Grid are designed to allow for a mud-free paddock with an ultra-easy installation. The grids can be installed on top of the ground and over existing mud and are strong enough to support horses, livestock, vehicles and tractors. The surface is perforated allowing for easy drainage. Additionally, the grids sit up from the ground allowing for water storage beneath. The grids are easily interlocked to create larger mud-free surfaces.
