Yard Protection is a high-density polyethylene green mesh designed to reinforce and protect grassy areas used by cars, light trucks, golf carts, ATVs, etc. Rolls out easily over your turf just after mowing and is held in place by plastic or metal pins (sold separately) to provide a year-round protective barrier. Turf can be mowed as normal and hides the 1-1/4"x1-1/4" UV-stabilized honeycombed mesh once it grows through the openings. Turf reinforcement mat is ideal for applications where traffic is less frequent and the turf has time to recover between passes. Package contains two 20'L x 3.35'W sections and weighs 5.5 lbs. USA made.

          I installed this two months ago, and already you can barely tell it is there. The area where it was installed was a heavy foot traffic corridor, and this product was more than sufficient to prevent damage to the grass. I have no information about how it works for cars, but based on what I've seen it should do well. Just mow and trim right over the top in a few days.

            I bought a couple of roles to test on grass area that is narrow next next to house that has a pretty good slope which is the only access between front and back yard for riding mowers and atv's. The grass always gets chewed up in the spring when its soft and becomes compacted during summer and dies because of compaction and turf crown damage.

            Put it down just after snow left while grass was still dormant. Works better if 2 people install so you can stretch it out. Also used a lot more sod staples, that I had on hand, to keep it from not bubbling and stretched out.

            Has worked well to eliminate rutting and tear outs, especially considering the amount of rain this spring. Grass has grown through and the mesh has disappeared. Used a few more staples for bubbles that the grass pushes up as it came through. Will have to see if it reduces compaction and crown damage as the summer progresses.

            I was impressed enough to order a few more roles. It is tougher to get it to the ground when the grass is growing. I shaved the grass down to an inch, but tough to get worked in.

            With what I have seen so far, a pretty good investment for not a lot of money. I would recommend giving it a try.

                Comments about Yard Protection Mesh 40'L x 3.35'W:

                Due to the changing climate in our area, some of our lawn areas had become to wet to even walk on during the winter. I have tried spreading sand during the winter but it really did not help. I even utilized pea gravel for the last two winters. I spread the gravel evenly over the lawn to a depth of at least and inch and then let the grass grow through the gravel. However, the lawn was still soggy both last year and again this year. I needed to be able to get my tractor across the lawn but found it left large depressions; I even sank in a little just walking on the lawn. In addition, I ave French Drains for the lawn but even they no longer keep the lawn firm.
                I decided to try the Yard Protection Mesh since I had run out of other ideas. I spread and anchored the Yard Protection Mesh and was able to drive over the lawn, even with my pickup truck. The grass is already growing through the mesh and it is almost invisible, even though we are a long way from Spring. I have just purchased additional mesh and intend on covering all of the areas where I have had trouble driving (or even walking) on the lawn. This product was a real life saver. The only reason I did not give five stars is that I had not tried a similar product and was not sure how other products might compare.
