- LSG Grids are Available in 3", 4" & 6" Depths
- The LSG grid can be used to reduce mud and stabilize a variety of surfaces. The 3" model is best used for pedestrian and light vehicular traffic, the 4" & 6" models are designed for medium - heavy vehicle traffic.
- The LSG grid has been used on thousands of stabilization installations throughout the USA for over 10 years.
How to Install:
The following are installation instructions when installing the LSG grid with gravel infill. Download the full installation guide for instructions and specifications on installing the LSG grid with other infill types.
Step 1: Prepare Area
Mark out the area before excavating. Remove all debris and mud from the area. Next, excavate soil to the depth per the guide below. Now use gravel to level any dips so that the material will lay as flat as possible.

4" Mud Management Cell - Excavate 6" Down
6" Mud Management Cell - Excavate 8" Down
Step 2: Lay Geotextile Fabric
Install a layer of non-woven geotextile fabric. Be sure to overlap a minimum of 12" at the seams.
Step 3: Install Stakes
4 stakes should be placed at each corner of expanded grid dimensions. It is recommended that 1 stake is placed at each corner.
NOTE: Grid can be cut with a sharp pair of garden shears, utility knife or saw to any shape or size as needed to fit the desired area.
Step 4: Unpack Grid
Cut the bands around the compressed grid and unfold. If more than one grid is to be installed, refer to the connection instructions at the end of the installation guide below.
Step 5: Expand the Grid
Expand the grid past each stake to expand all cells together. Once expanded allow the grid to relax and place the corner cells over the installed stakes. Additional stakes can be added if necessary.
Step 6: Add Stakes
To ensure proper expansion, fill in gravel in the perimeter cells and add stakes when necessary.
Step 7: Fill the Cells with Gravel
Once the grid is properly expanded and staked, begin to fill the cells with gravel. It is recommended that one of the following gravel types is used:
Note: To prevent damage to the grid, do not drop gravel from more than 3' onto or into the grid when filling.
Step 8: Compact the Surface
Either blade or rake compact the infill gravel to 2" above the top of the cells. Next use a plate compactor or plate tamper to finish compacting the material.
Note: Sand can be used to overfill to provide a softer surface for the grid area if desired. Please keep in mind that by using sand the overall permeability of the surface will be reduced as over time the sand will collect at the bottom of the grid on the geotextile layer.
Connecting Grids Together
(click image above to enlarge)
The grids can be connected by either using heavy-duty zip-ties (for lighter load applications) or by stapling as shown below. If connecting with zip-ties, run the zip ties around the entire cell to connect.
