FAQs

The generic brand is MUDGRIDS however because they are not like any other type of mat or grid product, they are more like rock solid paving slabs (but with a cleverly designed grid underneath that pushes into the mud and holds them in place, and tabs which stabilise them with the adjacent slabs on any side.)  They feel like textured concrete underfoot and there is no ‘give’ so for this reason they are internationally also referred to as “slabs”. 

They measure 50cm x 50cm x 5.3cm and are 5.3cm high. Each grid weighs approx. 6.7 kg and there are 4 grids to a square metre.

MUDGRIDS are rated to 60 tonnes per square metre.

They are covered by a 20 year manufacturer’s warranty but can be expected to last longer than that.

We strongly recommend initially putting a good amount of sand on top of the grids to give extra grip until animals become accustomed to the surface. For an all-weather area we’d recommend putting some sand or surface on top of the grids. Read more about use of sand here.

MUDGRIDS are used successfully and safely with horses, cows, alpacas and sheep. 

Just about any solid surface gets slippery when iced over. Therefore if a hard frost is forecast we recommend leaving any hay, mud or manure on top to or otherwise putting fresh sharp sand down. The textured slab surface still gives grip unless it was already covered with water which then froze solid). Check out these videos - Video 1 and Video 2

If it’s lumpy and hard ground, then yes – the slabs won’t lie flat, they will rock back and forth on lumps. So that sort of ground would be best raked or graded or put sand down to bed the slabs onto. If the area is sunken, as in a high use gateway, then bringing the level up with topsoil and putting the slabs on top to protect it works well. 

Yes, if it’s really deep then mud may come up through the holes and will need to be scraped and hosed off. If the problem persists or worsens you can put a membrane down under them to prevent mud (and later grass) from coming up through the holes.

Generally quite easy, although if the mud has filled up the grids on the underneath of the slabs and dried out, they will be stuck and weighted down. Lifting a whole row at a time (so you are only trying to undo the joins in one direction) is best, just pull a whole row away from the next row. A spade used at an angle on the leading edge will also help to dislodge the grids. Then pull the grids apart then knock them together to get the mud plugs to drop out.

No, MUDGRIDS actually protect the ground from getting torn up. The grass will grow up through the holes if you want so you can graze or mow over the top of them. If you don’t want grass to grow through them, putting a membrane down first is the answer.If you decide to lift the grids, the ground underneath might just need rolling to break up the mud ‘plugs’.

Yes, up to about 20 degrees, above that making ‘steps’ would be a better idea.

They are 5cm in diameter. If you are worried about little paws or feet going through, filling the holes with sharp sand or pea gravel is the answer. This can even look nice…

The delivery driver can unload off the truck’s tail lift, as long as there is smooth hard tarmac or concrete surface.

When looking at a surface for a yard, drive or path, a lot of people immediately think of concrete. However, not only is concrete production environmentally impactful, concrete can also cause damage to the most fertile layer of the earth. By creating a hard surface, you increase surface run off which in turn can actually cause further flooding problems, soil erosion and water pollution.

Concrete is typically up to four times more expensive than MUDGRIDS per square metre and likely requires extensive and expensive ground preparation and installation by professionals. It’s also there for good. Whereas MUDGRIDS are portable, and re saleable.

Yes and there are also pick up locations in Mt Wellington and Nor-west Auckland by prior arrangement.

Freight is calculated on a tonnage basis depending on location and charged at cost. Rural delivery may incur a surcharge.

Full pallet orders (136 units) are either freight free or freight subsidised depending on delivery location.

No but freight costs may be restrictive under 24 grids (4m2).

100% post consumer recycled “yellow bag” plastic.

We are ordering full container loads subject to demand and our intention is to always have some stock on hand but this cannot be guaranteed.

The grids do need something to stick to, so always best to lay them in a bit of mud which will also help bind them together like glue. Ideally somewhere where in between the mud and dry ground.
