Construction mats for heavy equipment, Lawn protect mats, Grass and ground protection mats

Use ground protection mats again and again on the worksite. These will bend but will not break. They are a must when driving over lawns, muddy areas and other finished or delicate surfaces.

Lawn and grass heavy equipment mats are designed to protect turf by dispersing the weight of vehicles and preventing slippage of tires and tracks.

How to Pick Best Grass Protection Mats Types

  1. Calculate the number of times they will be used per year.
  2. Determine the total weight of the items that they will need to support.
  3. Calculate the time frame needed to use them.
  4. Determine the grade of the area where they will be installed.
  5. Consider the types of tires on the vehicles. (Some are only suitable for use with rubber tires.)


Some of our ground protection mats lock together, yielding a user friendly locale. These are designed to hold together under a hefty load. We even offer wedge shaped pieces for making perfect corners.

Benefits of Ground Protection Mats in a Cemetery

  1. Protect yards and other sensitive areas during excavation.
  2. Access any area with gear. Even if working across lawns that are soft from rain, they keep grasses safe.
  3. Create a temp composite roadway over difficult surfaces, like sand, gravel, and bare soil.
  4. Prevent soft mud from becoming an issue in portable roadways.
  5. Keep huge trucks and bulldozers from sinking in wet lawns and maximize traction for simple maneuvering.
  6. Reuse them numerous times, maximizing the investment and maintaining a professional look.
  7. There's none of the frustration of using plywood that waterlogs, warps and splinters.


They can be custom designed and sold in kits. Please allow several weeks for custom manufacturing.

These will not splinter, warp, water log, break down, or become slippery like plywood. Ours maintains a pro level of appearance use after use. Use these for temp roadways multiple times. This saves money in the long run versus replacing plywood after each job.

These have undergone meticulous testing. This high density material is guaranteed to withstand large amounts of weights from a variety of wheeled landscaping power tools like skid steers, bobcats, and tractors.

Most range in size from 6 to 8 feet long and 2 to 4 feet in width. Most are 1/2 inch thick. Depending upon their size, these weigh between 33 and 86 pounds.

Ground Protection Mat 4x8 Options

Greatmats offers a variety of 4x8 foot skid steer ground protection mats. There are plenty of features for different needs.

They are available as clear or black mats. Transparency allows for UV penetration, which accommodates yard growth. This is an option best used for temporary roadways or construction site over manicured lawns where the mats are intended to be left in place for quite a while.

Many of our heavy duty ground protection mats have two surface options: cleated or smooth. These may both be incorporated into one design. Keep in mind that these provide much more traction than plywoods, especially if wet.

Portable roadway matting is designed for use over any outdoor surface, including grass, dirt, and sand. This is a smart option for roads that temporarily need to be spread across a large raw or dirt locale outside. They can accommodate frequent vehicle traffic. They can even be placed on existing roadways not designed to handle heavy machinery that may need to cross it.

Some use a pin and clip system to simplify installation. Round connectors are ideal for standard applications. Flat connectors are preferable for walkways and flat surfaces, including athletic sport track mats.

Our TrakMat Grounds Cover units are versatile. These ground protection mats feature a power cylinder tread surface for maximized traction. Ours can handle loads up to 90 tons.

They mold to the grounds, thanks to their flexible makeup. Weather changes don't affect the materials.

We also offer smaller modular tiles that are 1x1 foot in size. These black and gray tiles are intended for pedestrian walkways and party tent flooring but can also handle vehicle weight. They weigh less, so they're easier to handle. Small matting is suitable for projects where only a small area needs to be crossed.

If making use of cranes and other large pieces of gear, our Outrigger Pads are a sound investment. These pads are lightweight. They feature safety orange rope handles, making them easy to maneuver. They guard the grounds when used under cranes, industrial vehicles, lift bucket trucks, and more.

Temporary Walkway Options

For walkways set in place temporarily, consider our Portable Outdoor Floor Tile. These durable polypropylene tiles hinge at the connection points allowing them to contour some with the ground below. They're both waterproof and UV resistant.

They will not separate under stress. When finished they can be disassembled completely or left in any size sheets (in 1 foot increments) for faster installation they next time they are needed.

Our Ergo Matta Perforated Outdoor tile is often used for outside play areas at schools and daycare facilities. Since it can be installed over grass, dirt or gravel, and allows for repeat installations it is also suitable for temporary sidewalks. It has a 20-inch fall height rating and come in eight color selections.

These drain efficiently after rainstorms. Their interlocking design makes assembly easy and fast. They come with a limited 5 year warranty.

Using Ground Mats for Heavy Equipment

To use turf protection mats, simply place them down and drive atop them with trucks, trailers, tractors and other heavy equipment such as excavators. Link each ground mat together to create a roadway for hard-to-reach locations.

Shipping Ground Protection Mats

Ours are shipped on pallets by freight delivery. Consider purchasing a kit that includes a metal pallet, straps, and connector pins. These kits simplify transportation and installation.

We deliver some of the best prices available. Please call our expert service representatives with questions about our products and to learn about shipping information details.
