LAYING INSTRUCTIONS:

Our Mud Control Grids make it easy to cover even large areas relatively quickly. Although the grids adapt well to uneven ground, level ground gets the best results.

Step 1
Minimal ground prep is needed. Level the ground by flattening peaks and filling large holes. Lay down the first row of Mud Control Grids across the full length of the area to be covered.
Important: Leave an expansion gap of at least 1/4” (0.5 cm). Space should also be left between the grids and buildings or edging structures.

Step 2
The second row of grids should be staggered against the first by using a half grid at the beginning. Grids can be easily cut by skill saw.
Cutting: Mud Control Grids are easily cut with skill saws, bench saws, panel saws or jig saws.
Inserting: When laying down Mud Control Grids, a crowbar or shovel can give helpful leverage – but do not apply too much force. The grids should fit loosely together to avoid high tensions during extreme hot or cold weather.

Step 3 (Optional)
Once the grids have been laid out, fill the holes with washed sand or another water-permeable material. For general use, but especially with all-season open stabling, we recommend a finishing layer (e.g. riding arena sand or wood chips) of at least 1 1/4” (3 cm).

    These are a life saver for deep muddy paddocks. I installed these myself and I’m a 64 year old woman with Parkinson’s! I took a hoe and a metal rake to knock the points off the mud a little and started laying them down. Now I can go in the gate with the wheelbarrow and the horses can walk to the water without sinking in the mud 8 inches. The subsequent rows were a little harder to lay by myself so I put them together first then tucked them in as a unit by 3’s. I wish they were a little cheaper I’d have gotten more. The horses started walking on them right away.

      We are so glad to hear that these worked well for you! I know you didn’t want to have to worry about ground prep. Sounds like the horses approve as well!

    I probably have every mud solution somewhere on my property with the horses: from the solid concrete to just fill and everything in between. Having had horses for 60 years (I am 73) on my own property, the problems are endless.

    The mud grids appear to be the best solution. They can be put down by yourself with little to no ground preparation. I purchased them for two areas. 1) I have a bid National Show Horse (16 1/2 hands probably 1400 pounds) that uses a pasture connected to his mud paddock (which has a portion of it done with gravel, plastic grid and filled with sand, and another portion that is with geo tech fabric and gravel as a driveway) but the gateway area (which has a pond beyond that I have tried to drain the area to) was a constant mud puddle. Often he got left in as I couldn’t make it to the gate to open. I put the grids down about 6 rows wide and 12/14 tiles long. I think it took about an hour or so to put them in place and the metal fence on top. Opened the gate and Drachma went right over it. It has been in almost a year and I never have had mud issues, can always get to the gate.
    2) was along the arena as an alleyway out of the barn. The water would come off the roof and make a huge mud area that the horses refused to go through (they can use another door), but I wanted to make this a separate area for one horse. Put the grids down about 3 wide and 5 long – no longer a problem. Sometimes there is water over it but I and the horses can still walk on it without sinking in.

    We live on a hillside, and could not get a tractor to do any ground prep for other mud-control ideas so found these grids and wanted to try due to the very little prep required. So glad we did. It took my husband and I less than 2 hours to lay about 40 grids over a soupy muddy mess at a gate that we use often for our horses. We laid them out 1 row at a time (3-5 grids), and it worked best for us to put together the next row before pushing that row into an existing row. Horses walked over them immediately and did fine. We saw the soupy mud come up through some of the holes when the horses stepped on the grids, but the grids held up great and no more sinking into the mud at this gate. It was a huge inconvenience for us to walk through that gate, and probably a safety concern, so we are very pleased with the results. I’m including a before and after pics. We did shovel a lot of the soupy mud onto the grids and scraped it over the grid so the mud would go through the holes and help create suction. We’ll probably add some sand over the top too although I and my horse found no slipping issue whatsoever on the grids with a thin layer of mud over them.
