The original equestrian grid system permanently solves your muddy paddocks problems.
The most successful soil stabilization system in Europe, widely tested and applied worldwide for years, is now available to the American livestock and equine industries.
How it works . . .          
Load-bearing capacity: up to 70,000 lbs. per square foot.: Working on the ‘snowshoe principle,’ the grids disperse the weight of the stock over a larger surface area (effectively, 689 square inches for a four-legged animal).

How strong was that?
During installation, maintenance, or normal usage – earthmoving equipment, tractors, steamrollers or fully loaded dump trucks may be driven on top of the ECORASTER grids.
Because the entire ECORASTER systems interlocks, for the horse or steer to sink into the mud, theoretically it would need to weigh about 160,000 lbs. or more.

The result . . .     
Permanently retire from your paddock improvement career, and forever forget the ‘spread 6-12 inches of gravel and replace regularly’ system.
The grids permanently separate the top layer from the ground sub-base, preventing intermingling of the layers.  In many conditions, no foundation work is required.  In the rest, much less stone is required, and never needs replaced!

Ecoraster e-40 or Ecoraster e-50?

For most equestrian applications the standard ecoraster e-40 is sufficient.
Some climates may require ecoraster e-50.
In those cases requiring heavy-duty grids, the extra cost per units is often offset by the decreased: foundation work (sub-base), top layer and maintenance requirements.
Strong and FLEXIBLE!  The German ORIGINAL...
Manufactured from Post-Consumer Recycled Content reinforced PE (Polyethylene).  
This is not the fracture-prone, substandard HDPE grid systems previously familiar to some in the USA.
It is able to withstand climate extremes from minus 58° to +194° Fahrenheit while remaining flexible.
