Mat-Pak Transparent Grass Protection Mats, 3x8 Feet

For customers who want to protect an existing planted lawn from heavy tools and vehicle traffic when doing construction or landscaping work, our Mat-Pak Transparent Grass Protection Mats represent the ideal solution.

These clear grass protection mats allow some sunlight to reach the yard underneath them, which is important when the customer knows the mats need to be in place for several days to create a temporary roadway.

Using a non-transparent mat over the grass for even a few days can leave the plants unable to benefit from photosynthesis. This could leave the grass dead by the time you no longer need the roadway.
This product is made from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

Protection for Soft Ground

When doing significant remodeling on the exterior of a building or home, workers may want to bring in a boom lift or a scissors lift to handle the job versus using ladders. Even though the lifts will save time versus climbing up and down a ladder, the property owner may not want to see damage to the existing yard.

Our grass protection mats are the perfect solution. These mats are the best for sale for creating a roadway for driving the lift or other types of heavy equipment into place near the building.

Even if the ground around the building is soft from recent rain, the durable polyethylene plastic mats will distribute the weight from the tires of the equipment to prevent the vehicles from sinking into the soft turf and from leaving significant tire tracks.

Each mat is able to support up to 120 tons of weight, so it is durable enough even for cars. Should the construction team need to tow a power tool cart or trailer onto the property, they can drive the vehicle and trailer over the top of these connected mats.

Rather than laying out a temp driveway with gravel that will crush the existing grass, our mats leave no mess once the construction job comes to an end.

Multiple Use Cases for Protective Yard Mats

These mats are a smart choice at a school or stadium where the grounds crew needs to drive equipment and vehicles onto the field to do some work after watering it. Lay out these mats first, and the baseball, softball, soccer, or football field will look like new after finishing the work.

For those who own an acreage, laying out a series of these mats is a great way to create a path for people using the space. This yields a safe space for people to walk or for kids to ride a bicycle safely, helping them find a way to exercise, even if the ground is muddy.

When laying out these mats, do not place them over a drainage ditch or try to span a creek or stream. These mats must go over the top of firm ground. If trying to span a ditch, the portion of the mat that is not touching the ground may not be able to hold the weight of vehicles, bicycles, or people walking on it.

Highly Durable Lawn Mats

Our grass protection mats are extremely durable, carrying a limited lifetime manufacturer warranty. This means the owner can use these mats for different jobs hundreds of times. Move them in and out of storage, ensuring they’re always ready to use the next time the customer needs to make a temporary road.

Each mat weighs 64.5 pounds, so one person may be able to move it in place, although two people working together can do the job more quickly.

If the mats will be supporting significant weight or covering slightly uneven ground, the manufacturer includes connectors that will hold the mats in place, ensuring the road will not pull apart under stress.

Maintenance and Care

Customers appreciate the ease of keeping these grass protection mats in top working condition. The durable material in these mats means that customers do not have to purchase special equipment to clean them or spend a lot of time maintaining them.

If desired, customers can wash the mats with a garden hose or a power washer to remove mud and plants that stick to the surface as vehicles drive across them.

It’s also possible to leave the mats in place without cleaning them until the job is completed. These mats will not suffer damage or lose their ability to hold weight if they are wet or caked in mud, which can happen when people use plywood sheets to make temp roads.

After finishing using the mats, customers will want to wash them off before moving them into storage. Allow them to dry before stacking them.


Clean using a pressure washer or garden hose and non-metal scrub brush.
