In most cases, including horse or tractor use, Mud Control Grids can be laid directly onto mud without ground preparation. For very soft ground, longer-lasting installations or even just a more attractive finish, follow the steps below:

Step 1. Before installing the grids, a 2-inch gravel layer will improve support and drainage for very soft ground. A 2 to 4-inch layer of wood chips can also be used to create a flexible base.

Step 2. Mark out and level the area. For soils like heavy clay, install a non-woven needle-punched 3.5 oz geotextile (with 6 inches overlap) to prevent loss of infill material.

Step 3. Allow for adjacent edging or fencing and lay grids along a string line. Leave a quarter-inch gap between grids and use the interlocking tabs to help with level and alignment.

Step 4. For a staggered bond, begin the second row with half a grid (grids can be sawn, just like wood). Leave a quarter-inch gap between rows and each new grid. Use the other grid half at the end of the row.

Step 5. Once installed, Mud Control Grids can be filled with permeable material like coarse sharp sand, which is ideal or quarter or ⅝ - inch gravel. A ton of sand or gravel will fill around 140 grids (375 sq feet).

NB. If using gravel, clear all gravel from the surface before use.

Step 6. Mud Control Grids can be used without a finishing or tread layer. For general use and especially for shod horses with all-season stabling, we recommend a final 2 to 4-inch layer of riding sand or fine sand with 2% clay (protecting against frost and minimizing the risk of slipping hooves). Use a roller or plate vibrator to lightly compact the sand. Top up each year to maintain top condition.

Expansion. Mud Control Grids expand by 1/16 inches per unit per 50 degrees F/10 degrees C change. The recommended 1/4-inch gap between grids covers a temperature change of over 140 degrees F/60 degrees C. For very large area, a 2-inch gap can be introduced every 100 grids, if desired.
