What You Should Know About Mud Mats & Protecting Your Lawn

Your well maintained and cared for lawn probably took a lot of work on your part. If the use of heavy machinery has started tearing up your lawn, it's time to protect it. Heavy equipment can reap a lot of havoc on your lawn and making it very difficult for grass to grow. In this article, we will go over how to protect your lawn using some simple steps.

Heavy machinery moves around on either treads or wheels and will easily destroy your yard after a few days. We are providing some important tips to protect your lawn from damage when you need to bring in heavy machinery for a project such as installing a pool.

Our Best Tips For Protecting Your Lawn From Heavy Machinery Or Equipment

Ask anyone who has dealt with trying to protect their lawn from heavy equipment or machinery. They know all too well the destruction left in its path can be costly. It's very difficult to try and undo what has been done. It will take time, money, and a lot of effort on your part. So, how can you protect your grass from this equipment?

To begin with, you need to know what kind of equipment will apply the most pressure to your lawn such as large tractors serving as mowers. Even though weed eaters cause the least amount of damage, they still need to be addressed. Their sharp blades can cut through anything in its way, including grass.

Tractors are one of the leading culprits that can cause deep gashes in your yard. The best alternative for protect ing your lawn from these machines is placing a mat underneath it so they won't drag in mud and dirt that will tear up your yard.

You Must Have Dry Ground

Before allowing heavy equipment to travel over your yard, make sure the ground is dry. The ground will absorb the weight so damage is not left in its path.

If the ground is wet it's also soft, causing the equipment to sink and compact leaving deep ruts and gouges in the ground. If you or someone else will be operating heavy equipment on a regular basis, you should consider installing artificial turf instead of natural grass.

Apply A Tarp Over Exposed Areas

Place a tarp over the exposed areas that will be worked on. The tarp will create a protective barrier reducing the amount of time cleaning up after the machinery is gone. Even though this offers less protection than a mat or ground cover, it's easy to reuse and will be available when you need it.

The tarp will work as a layer that will take the full force of the equipment driven over it. If you choose to use a tarp, make sure there are no holes or tears in the fabric allowing dirt and debris to get underneath and damage your lawn.

The holes in the corners will allow you to tie it down so it will not move around. Make sure both ends reach down at least 2 feet from either side of the edge where work is being done. Otherwise, there could be an opening allowing material to fall onto areas that are out of bounds, especially if the area is muddy.

Stay away from using heavy machinery or equipment in wet conditions because it can increase the risk of slipping and falling caused by the build-up of mud when the ground becomes wetter. If you will be working on an area that's wet, let the area dry out before bringing in the equipment or machinery.

It's imperative not to damage turf that has been put down over barren soil usually found around new homes. This can lead to damaged grass roots and added costs for repairs.If you will need regular access to these areas, make sure you provide good protection using plywood sheets, mats, or something else. You want to stay away from potential long-term problems by taking precautions ahead of time.

In General, Mats Are the Best Alternatives For Protecting All Areas

Mats are the best way to protect grass from heavy equipment. Mats are specifically designed for this use and are available in different thicknesses. The most popular thickness is around one inch.

The mats should be placed around any area that needs protection for your grass. Spread them out as far as possible making sure they overlap each other just a bit. Mats can be used on their own if you do not have enough space for overlapping. They can also be used to prevent damage from turf scrubbers. If you will only need one width of mat, it should cover the entire surface that will come in contact with heavy equipment because it's difficult to predict irregularities or other issues.

Mats come in two kinds, permanent and temporary. Temporary mats are good for one time use or a short run project. Permanent mats are designed to last for multiple uses or through several seasons. The best way to find out which kind of mat will work best for your situation is to take measurements of the area using these dimensions. The more information you have ahead of time, the easier it will be to decide what is the right kind of mat for your needs.

Permanent mats are the chosen products when there will be heavy machinery or equipment making contact with grassy areas over a long period of time such as on construction sites that need a great deal of earth being moved around.

Use Plywood To Protect Against Constant Movement Of The Machinery

If you need maximum protection, you should use plywood to protect grass, especially if the equipment will be pivoting in place or constantly turning around. If you will be operating the equipment and will be making several turns, place a piece of plywood on each side of the tires and allow them to overlap just a bit so they will not slide around every time you make a turn. If you will be driving straight ahead, leave enough space for 2 pieces of plywood for each tire and only one or two inches for overlapping where it's possible.

Last Thought – How To Protect Grass From Heavy Equipment

The best way to protect your grass from heavy equipment is installing a protective barrier. There are many choices including steel plates and mylar film. These barriers have shown over and over to effectively work against heavy equipment damage so you can be certain they will work for you! You have probably spent a great deal of time and money manicuring and increasing the overall look of your yard. This is not the time to allow heavy equipment or machinery to tear everything down. Following some of our suggestions and covering your bases, your yard and lawn should get through without any significant damage.
