Erosion Control for Sloped Gravel Driveways

Checkers GEOGrid System

Sloped gravel driveways are particularly susceptible to erosion. Over time, draining rainwater or snowmelt can deteriorate gravel driveways. If erosion control measures are not implemented, uneven driveways could lead to damaged vehicles or injuries. Ground stabilization systems are designed to provide erosion control on sloped gravel driveways. Ground stabilizations mats are engineered to disperse excess water and keep gravel driveways intact.

Checkers is the industry leader in safety equipment designed for the everyday user. Our products will reduce the potential for damaged assets or personal injury in various residential and recreational settings. To help you find the erosion control mats that are right for you, here is an overview of the GeoGrid Ground Cellular System from Checkers.

In addition to gravel driveways and parking lots, this system is ideal for car parks, equestrian areas, fire and emergency routes, and golf cart paths.

The Geo Grid System Provides Sustainable Drainage

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) identifies sustainable drainage as low-impact development (LID) systems intended to promote green infrastructure. Sustainable drainage systems are designed to be minimally invasive to reduce the impact on local ecosystems. Additionally, sustainable drainage systems will retain water runoff to encourage natural percolation and filtration.

The GeoGrid Ground Cellular System will provide reliable ground reinforcement for driveways and gravel parking lots while simultaneously promoting drainage via the natural water cycle. The cells of the GeoGrid system are uniquely engineered to allow water to pass through while preventing gravel from shifting.
