Our Grass driveway grid is designed to provide grass reinforcement. It is both heavy duty and versatile. The mesh is easy to install and does not require a gravel base which reduces labor costs and overall material costs. This product is great for more frequently used parking areas or access to a detached garage. This product is made in the USA.
Our grass protection mesh is designed for demanding applications. The osculated mesh pattern provides a high degree of strength which is required to support the weight of a vehicle. Our mesh is ASTM lab tested to ensure strength and durability.

Easy to Work With 25-foot Roll Size
Most heavy-duty grass protection mesh on the market is shipped in large 50’-70’ rolls which are very large, heavy and difficult to handle. When developing MudStop™ HG we kept this in mind and decided to produce 25’ rolls which are much easier to handle and work with. A roll of MudStop™ HG weighs 60 lbs and can be picked up and moved by one person instead of two. Additionally, due to the reduced roll length, smaller projects can be accomplished without having to purchase a bunch of extra material.
MudStop™ HG vs Economy-Grade Mesh
Low priced economy-grade mesh can provide basic reinforcement for very occasional vehicular parking. Where issues arise are in material durability and reduced traction. Due to its low strength, economy-grade mesh quickly deforms when driven on and will begin to rut out the grass underneath. Additionally, the low priced mesh is typically a flat mesh without ridges. This can create a slippery surface for pedestrians and vehicles when wet. MudStop™ HG incorporates an osculated mesh pattern to provide greatly enhanced material strength while its multi-layer design enables enhanced traction for both vehicles and pedestrians.
Where Can MudStop™ HG be Installed?
MudStop™ HG grass protection mesh can be installed in a wide variety of different landscape applications - pretty much anywhere you want protection against rutting from tires or foot traffic!
Residential Parking Areas
Commercial Parking Areas
Vehicle Access Roads
Golf Cart & ATV Pathways
RV, Trailer or Boat Storage Lanes
Overflow Event Parking
Pedestrian Walkway Areas
Great for Dog Runs Too!
In addition to protecting grass from vehicular damage, MudStop™ HG can also be used to protect grass from becoming damaged in dog run areas. The osculated mesh pattern is engineered with small openings which keeps paws from getting stuck. Does your dog love to dig in your lawn? Our mesh will prevent that from happening as well. MudStop™ HG is the perfect solution to keep your lawn mud free and your dog with a safe place to run and play.
The installation of MudStop™ HG in a lawn area can easily be accomplished by the homeowner. Follow the simple 3-step process below to reinforce your lawn with MudStop™ HG for optimal protection of your lawn area:
Step 1: Cut the Grass Short:
First cut the grass area short so that the mesh can be applied as close to the root zone as possible.
Roll out the Mesh:
Roll out the mesh on the grass’s surface.
Attach Using Ground Staples:
Using 8" ground staples, affix the mesh to the ground’s surface placing 1 staple every 18 inches in all directions. (each 25' roll of MudStop™ HG requires approximately 100 staples) As a general rule of thumb, the more staples you use the more secure the mesh will be. Edges and seams may require additional staples depending on the installation site characteristics. While stapling, be sure to smooth out any bumps or bubbles in the mesh caused by an uneven grass surface.
You're Done Park Your Vehicle!
You can now drive, park and walk on your reinforced lawn. Be sure to water the grass well to encourage appropriate grass growth through the mesh. This will help disguise the material and provide a more natural looking surface.
Parking an RV or Boat?
If you are parking an rv, boat or other heavy vehicle long-term on the mesh it is a good idea to double up the mesh where the wheels will directly rest. Over time a very heavy load concentrated on a single area can deform the mesh especially during heavy rainfall if the ground below becomes saturated. Adding a second layer of mesh will provide additional support and help to prevent indentation into your lawn from the vehicle tires.The best way to accomplish this is to install a 1-1/2’ square under the main mesh layer where each tire will rest.

How Grass Driveways & The Environment Work Together
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.
Parked Cars on Grass
Pros & Cons
Pros: 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 Between Pavers
Cons: 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!
