Ground Guards

Ground guards are polyethylene grids that can be easily installed on any type of soil and filled with grass or gravel to create a natural looking and functional surface. 

Ground guards are an ideal option to stabilise and reinforce gravel, grass, and soil in high-traffic areas while allowing rainwater drainage.

Benefits of Ground Guards

Ground guards offer many benefits over traditional paving methods, such as:

  • Stabilize Gravel and Soil - Ground guards create a solid reinforced base to prevent gravel, soil, and grass erosion from vehicle and foot traffic.
  • Allow Drainage - The open structure and gravel/grass fill allow rainwater drainage to prevent flooding and runoff. This is a sustainable stormwater management system.
  • Withstand Heavy Loads - Our commercial-grade ground guards can withstand heavy vehicle loads of up to 60 tonnes for parking and access roads.
  • Quick & Easy Installation - Interlocking ground guard tiles allow for simple DIY installation. No noisy or disruptive construction is required.
  • Versatile Applications - Use for driveways, parking areas, walkways, shed bases, equestrian areas, and more.
