Options for Outdoor Walkway Mats

Outdoor gatherings are a great way to get back to nature. For some people, the more remote a location is for the party, the better. However, reaching those remote locations can be quite a chore, especially if it rains and you are trudging across a muddy trail. You certainly don’t want soft ground to prevent people using a wheelchair, walker, or baby stroller from reaching the party. Outdoor walkway mats from Greatmats create a temporary sidewalk that’s as sturdy as the real thing.

Our heavy-duty walkway mats deliver temporary access to a remote area, whether you’re going over mud, grass, or gravel. They can also go over sand when you need to provide beach access or a walkway inside a layout of beach volleyball courts. These sturdy, portable mats even work to reach an exterior roof patio.

Types of Outdoor Walkway Matting

We offer four primary formats and materials in our outdoor walkway pads.

  • Large Plastic Mats: Polyethylene plastic is a common material in use for our outdoor mud mats. It’s lightweight and durable, making it ideal for this use case, as you can DIY the construction before the party and tear it down quickly afterward. The layout goes fast because of the large size of the mats, often measuring 4x8 feet each. This plastic doesn’t soak up moisture.
  • Tiles: Interlocking tiles made to go over uneven ground can consist of polypropylene or PVC plastic. PVC is a little more flexible than polypropylene, which simplifies the installation but reduces the firmness in the temporary sidewalk. These tiles are smaller than the 4x8 plastic mats, making them easier to handle. You won’t cover the ground as quickly, though. These plastics don’t soak up moisture, either.
  • Rolls of Outside Matting: When you want to use a roll of outside matting, we offer PVC plastic rolls that are significantly lighter than an outdoor rubber walkway roll. The PVC rolls have perforations that allow excess water to flow away, making them ideal for use around a pool.
  • Rubber Mats and Tiles: When you want to provide maximum traction in your outdoor walkways, rubber tiles and mats work nicely, especially for roof walkways. However, they’re heavy, so creating a long walkway can be more challenging with rubber than with plastic.
