How to Fix Ruts and Prevent Gravel Driveway Erosion
Gravel driveways tend to erode over time, especially in areas that are prone to flooding or heavy rains. In addition to an undesirable aesthetic, uncontrolled driveway erosion can lead to damaged vehicles and personal injury. One solution to driveway erosion is a ground stabilization system that is designed to provide adequate ground reinforcement and water dispersion. These systems can help prevent erosion and keep gravel driveways looking like new.

To help you find the ground stabilization solution that is right for your gravel driveway, here is a look at the Geo Grid ground stabilization system from Checkers.

Geo Grid Ground Cellular System
The Geo Grid ground stabilization system from Checkers is a cellular grid paving system that is designed to provide permanent ground reinforcement in a wide range of applications. The Geo Grid system features a durable high-density polyethylene construction and a modular interlocking design that allows for fast and easy installation.
The individual cells of the Geo Grid system can be filled with aggregate or decorative stones to create reliable ground reinforcement in areas that are prone to erosion. The Geo Grid cells can also be seeded with grass to provide an environmentally friendly ground stabilization that will promote sustainable drainage in areas that are prone to flooding. The Geo Grid system is available in standard and premium options. The standard Geo Grid system has a load-bearing capacity of 350 tons, and the premium option has a load-bearing capacity of up to 500 tons.
This ground stabilization system also features optional white or high-visibility demarcation blocks that are ideal for use where there is a need to indicate a specific zone, such as traffic flow direction or accessible parking spots. The Geo Grid system is an innovative solution that will prevent erosion in a variety of applications, including car-parks, gravel driveways, equestrian areas, fire and emergency routes, and golf cart paths.
The Geo Grid System Provides Sustainable Drainage
Sustainable drainage is a water drainage system that is designed to promote harmony between manufactured drainage systems and the natural water cycle. These systems are typically intended to retain water and storm runoff to facilitate natural water percolation and filtration. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identifies sustainable drainage as low-impact development (LID) systems that are intended to promote green infrastructure.
The Geo Grid system from Checkers is a minimally invasive system that is designed to provide reliable ground reinforcement without disrupting natural water cycles. Water can percolate through the cells of the GeoGrid system, which will help disperse water accumulation in areas that are prone to flooding.
