Grass Driveway Grid


Our Grass driveway grid is designed to provide grass reinforcement. It is both heavy duty and versatile. Available in three different grades to suit your needs with light, medium and heavy duty applications. The mesh is easy to install and does not require a gravel base which reduces labor costs and overall material costs. The light duty option (standard grade) is made from HDPE extruded-designed plastic mesh. This is great for light duty parking, pathways, dog runs, off leash dog areas, and more.

Medium and Heavy grade mesh is great for more frequently used parking areas or access to a detached garage. Our Heavy grade option is made from a coextrusion of two polymers: High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) to give structure to the roll and Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate (EVA) to increase slip resistance while improving traction.

The three mesh options are Standard Grade, Medium Grade, and Heavy Grade. The added benefit to the Heavy Grade is that it is ADA Compliant.

The Standard Grade is constructed from HDPE plastic, and the Medium and Heavy Grade are HDPE with EVA which provides added traction and grip capabilities.

  • Standard Grade is an designed for occasional personal vehicle overflow parking areas.
  • Medium Grade is ideal for semi-frequent parking.

  • Heavy Grade can be used for areas where cars are frequently parked including including RV parking areas.

How Grass Driveways & The Environment Work Together

Grass Pavers

Permeable Driveway

Cities and towns are growing in leaps and bounds and the use of asphalt and concrete surfaces are everywhere. No matter where you look, everything seems to be created using these materials for surfaces. The downside, asphalt, and concrete have caused increased flooding and deterioration of the landscape. These materials became super popular because they are easy to maintain and will last for a very long time. Places like parking lots, driveways, and streets are impenetrable due to asphalt and concrete surfaces but have caused enormous flooding.

A United States Geological Survey revealed a great deal more water is quickly streaming into water sources increasing frequent flooding in a shorter period of time. In turn, this will lead to many issues for local governments and residents having to clean up in the aftermath. If you have a lot of impenetrable surfaces near your area, more flood water will probably head in your direction causing flood damage to your home. In general, cities are always hotter than other areas during the summer because of the many surfaces made from asphalt and concrete.

The good news, you now have the option to install a grass driveway that is constructed with stormwater permeable pavers. These pavers have holes where grass can grow so water runoff is absorbed into the grass and soil instead of pouring into the streets and sewer lines. Less impenetrable surfaces in your area will be environmentally friendlier and lower the risk of flooding.


In some areas, governmental agencies restrict the amount of impenetrable surfaces you can have on your property. You might have to get a building permit to add a patio or an additional room to reduce your impenetrable footprint from somewhere else on your property. A grass driveway might just be the answer.

Steps For Installing A Grass Driveway

Note: The following information is general in nature. Please refer to the specific installation instructions for the driveway grid product that you are purchasing.

Rule of thumb, the best time to start your project is late spring or early fall.

First off, you must make sure it's safe to dig by contacting your local electric and water companies. Check the topsoil to ensure it's not frozen or wet. Compact the soil using a tamper. Place down a couple of inches of crushed rock then level it out using a tamper. Repeat

Now it's time to lay down the grass pavers that must be at least one inch below ground level. If you are using advanced plastic pavers, make sure to snap the honeycomb pavers together. Cover the pavers with loam (sand and clay).

Place sod on top of the loam or you can plant grass seed. If grass seed, you must keep it watered until the grass takes root. Grass pavers require the same attention as the rest of your lawn to prevent weeds from growing and spreading. Grass pavers are also known as grow-through pavers but can cost a little more than standard driveway pavers.

Pros & Cons

On top of stopping erosion, flooding, and stormwater runoff, you will be surrounded by incredible greenery that's good for your health and is exceptionally pleasing to look at versus traditional concrete.

The plastic pavers are long-lasting and can handle the weight of several cars so you can drive on the grass.

Grass Pavers

Grass Between Pavers

While there are many advantages to using grass pavers there are some disadvantages as well. Like your lawn, your grass driveway has one major downside, it must be cared for by mowing, edging, watering, weeding, and fertilizing.

If the maintenance you have to perform on your lawn is not something you want to get into, you should consider having a gravel driveway instead. Gravel offers the same benefits of a permeable surface but not the benefits of an environmentally pleasing look.

Just think about a worn-away riverbank, groundwater that will not be replenished, or serious flooding causing a great deal of damage. Your grass driveway will not change the world or create the perfect environment, but it's heading in the right direction!
