Why Choose a Plastic Grass Grid?

Why Choose a Plastic Grass Grid?

Plastic grass grids are strong, flexible and can be installed in a range of different situations. They have male to female interlocking hooks that allow them to withstand thermal, mechanical and UV stress.

Grass grids help prevent erosion and provide stability for grass surfaces. They also reduce the risk of flooding and excess groundwater pooling.


A good quality grass grid system will be able to withstand a reasonable amount of traffic for a long time without needing any replacement. The grids are made from high-quality recycled material, so you can rest assured that they’ll be able to handle the weight of cars and other vehicles without becoming damaged or degraded.

In addition, the plastic grass pavers can be easily trimmed to make sure that they fit perfectly around any curves in your driveway or parking area. This makes them a perfect choice for creating a grass drive that will be able to accommodate even the largest of vehicles.

ECCOdal grass grids are also incredibly durable and feature expansion joints that allow them to absorb both thermal and mechanical stresses. The grids also allow for water to permeate through them, which prevents groundwater shortage and flooding and eliminates the need for additional drainage.

Grass driveway pavers are also ideal for those who want to create a hidden garage or car park that won’t leave their lawn looking ugly or damaged. They help to reduce soil erosion, prevent vehicles from sinking and vastly improve the overall drainage of the area. Unlike traditional paving solutions, the pavers also look much more natural and attractive. This is especially true for brands like TRUEGRID that offer a high-quality grass grid alternative for parking and are committed to sustainable practices throughout their entire production process.

Easy to Install

A plastic grid is a simple and cost-effective way to solve a range of ground reinforcement problems. It can help to prevent soil erosion, stop vehicles sinking and vastly improve drainage. In addition, it is a far more environmentally-friendly option than traditional paving methods like concrete or tarmac.

The first step is to prepare the area where you are installing the grid. Then, lay a non-woven geotextile layer over the surface. This will Plastic Grass Grid prevent the soil from mixing with the gravel and ensure that effective drainage is maintained.

Next, place the grids on top of the sand or gravel and affix them to the surface using 8” ground staples (a bag of 100 will be included with each 25’ roll). Make sure that there are no gaps between each row of pavers and that the edges are secured well.

Fill the grids 80% full with a quality soil mix, this will give room for grass and geogrid supplier wildflower seeds to grow. Then spread a thin layer of wildflower or grass seed over the surface of the grids and lightly cover with more soil to protect the seeds and promote germination.

Once the seeds have been established, water the area regularly to keep it damp and nurture its growth. A good quality grid should comfortably withstand cars, vans and bin lorries so you can use it as a driveway or parking area with peace of mind.

Water Permeable

Our plastic grass pavers create a strong and hard-wearing lawn or gravel driveway that is permeable, so rainwater can soak through and not cause flooding. This also helps to prevent muddy, rutted areas and allows vehicles to drive across it all year round. These durable pavers are ideal for grass driveways, overflow parking areas, trailer parking spots and golf cart paths as well as residential and commercial permeable pavements and rooftop gardens.

The cellular design of these plastic grass pavers makes them extremely water permeable, so rainwater can easily flow through them and into the ground below. This reduces a shortage of groundwater and helps to avoid flooding, which can damage property or cars. It also means that you don’t need to invest in a drainage system, which can be expensive.

The cellular construction of these grass pavers means that they can be filled with gravel or even soil to create a permeable surface. This allows rainfall and stormwater to be absorbed into the ground, which rehydrates it and naturally filters pollutants. This is an eco friendly alternative to traditional asphalt or concrete grid paving and also helps to alleviate drought conditions.


The grass grids unique structure enables it to protect the grass underneath from stress caused by vehicles, stopping the ground from becoming churned up and reducing the effect on the surrounding soil and seed. It also prevents lateral migration of the turf whilst it grows. This helps to keep the area clean and free of weeds and allows the grass to knit together easily with no gaps. The ECOPARK 40MM grid is tough and robust and can comfortably withstand vehicles up to 25 (tested) tonnes including cars, vans and lorries and is therefore suitable for a wide range of domestic to light industrial surface reinforcement applications.

The cellular design of the grids provides extra walls of stability for the grass and prevents lateral migration of the root zone in the same way that a traditional paving system does. This in turn means a much neater finish for the grass and soil, which also helps to reduce the impact on the environment and the cost of maintenance. This complete solution includes high quality backfill, a specialist compost top dressing and professional pre-greening of the TTE MultidrainPLUS plastic turf grids over a period of 2 to 3 months.

This enables the installation of a green car park in some simple steps and offers a sustainable alternative to conventional paving solutions such as turf grid plates or turf joint pavers. Conventional paving systems usually result in a low greening ratio, insufficient water and nutrient supply and rutting of the underlying soil.
