Level the ground by flattening bumps and filling 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.
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. Other power tools may also be appropriate.
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.
Lay down the second row of grids after the first row has been done. Remember to leave a 1/4” (0.5 cm) expansion gap.
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.
Tip: A substrate like sand can be used to level the grids out. Even after installation, substrate can fill gaps and dips by using a leverage action.
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).
