About Our 16mm Rubber Grass Mats

The 16mm rubber grass mat is our lighter grass mat variant and is most commonly used in gardens, equestrian areas and under small children’s play areas. They are a popular grass protection option for its durability, 1 metre critical fall height and wheelchair friendliness. The grass mats main purpose is to protect the root of the grass and help revive damaged areas of turf thrive as normal. In very muddy areas, rubber matting is installed (sometimes with the aid of GrassMesh underneath) to keep you and others above the mud with a supportive and cleaner path whilst also giving the grass below the protection needed to grow back and restore the areas natural appearance.

How To Install Rubber Grass Mats

  1. To begin, measure and mark out the site where your rubber grass mats are going to be installed. Cut short the grass and be sure to remove all clippings and debris that could get stuck under the mats.
  2. Level out an uneven areas using a good quality sandy topsoil if you are wanting a flat surface. Then firm up the surface and either seed or turf the designated area.
  3. OPTIONAL STEP: Install A Structural Grass Mesh Layer. On sites where the grass surface is prone to becoming very wet and soft, the installation of an additional layer of lightweight plastic grass mesh under your rubber grass mat can be used to provide additional structural support. The grass mesh is secured with U-Pins around the perimeter at around 50cm intervals.
  4. Begin laying out the 16mm rubber grass mats in the proposed area and if required, cut the mats to fit around any play equipment or obstacles that may be within the installation area.
  5. Proceed around the area from one side butting the rubber grass mats firmly against each other. Then using cable ties, fasten all of the touching edges tightly together with 3 on the long side of the mats and 2 on the short sides of the mats. Trim the ends of the fixed cable ties off and ensure that the cut end of the ties are not creating a hazard by being sticking up and being exposed above the surface of the rubber grass mats.
  6. After fixing the cable ties to the edges of the rubber grass mats, secure the mats into the ground by using plastic fixing pegs – use one peg in each corner and one in the middle (5 in total).
  7. OPTIONAL STEP: Edge blending where a discreet grass to rubber interface is required.
    • Using a spade or half-moon edging tool, cut a slit into the ground along the perimeter edge of every rubber grass mats and to a depth of approximately 75mm.
    • Roll back the edge of the rubber grass mats. Using a spade, starting approximately 150mm from the slit and working away from the rolled back mat, cut a wedged shaped slice of turf leaving a wedge shaped exposed soil channel. Continue this operation around the perimeter of the rubber grass mats where edge blending is required.
    • Roll the edge of the rubber grass mats back down into the exposed wedge shaped channel just created. Pin the edge of each mat into to the ground through the small holes in the mat with more plastic fixing pegs at intervals of 500mm.
    • Refill the exposed ramped edge to its original ground level with topsoil, then trim a layer of soil from the retained turf to give it an appropriate thickness (approx 50mm). Then you can re-bed the turf over the filled rubber grass mats and compact it down into place to provide a discreet edge.
  8. Finally, the grass will grow through the mats and cover the apertures of the rubber grass mats within around 4-6 weeks. Once grown, the grass can be mowed as normal by simply increasing the height of your lawn mowers blade.
