Gateway mats are as simple as the name would suggest. They are suited to be put down in high traffic areas, most commonly gateways, predominantly to be used by pedestrians and/or horses. These areas are prone to becoming boggy leading to mud being carried further up pathways as people have no choice but to walk through it. Gateway mats lift you above the mud providing good support and, in the long term, give the grass a chance to grow back reviving the whole area.
For extremely poor areas this product can be used in conjunction with ground protection mesh helping to prevent the mats from sinking down into the mud.
When to use Grass Mats vs. Ground Protection
For extremely muddy areas, this product can be combined with our ground protection mesh product to prevent the mats from sinking too far down into the mud.
While these erosion control mats can support vehicles driving in a straight line, they are not optimized for turning areas. Our ground protection mesh would be a better fit.
