    When our 3.5 tonne MH comes home from storage we have to pull it diagonally across our lawn, which is creating a wheel rut. I'd like to counter this by laying some plastic grass paver tiles which will support the wheels but allow the grass to grow through them so the lawn doesn't look like a parking bay. I reckon I need about 4 metres x 40cms, colour green, and I don't want to pay any more than is necessary.

    Does anyone out there already use them, and if so are there any makes to go for (or avoid), and do you know any online suppliers who do a good deal on them? Thanks.

    I bought a load off eBay - they come in multiples of 8 from recollection. They are called Plastic paving driveway, grid turf lawn gravel protector drainage mat.

    Cost me £38 for 16 which included delivery.

    Easy to lay and very effective

    They are very good and will support a reasonable weight. The most important thing to remember the final result like all things will be down to the preparation. You will find it necessary to dig out and put stone in underneath just as you would with concrete. The grass paving is the final bit that will sit on your prepared surface. When you back fill you have a couple of options. If you have retained the grass then you can put it straight on top of the grass paving and then put a piece of thick ply on top and either use a wacker plate or just jump up and down on it and the grass will be pushed I the honeycombe. You will then end up with the same grass finish.

    Each manufacture will / should have a recommended maxium weight capacity and I have seen some with a driven weight and a standing weight given

    I have over the years laid thousands of these both concrete and plastic ones .The concrete units are used on areas to cater for heavier traffic such as Fire engines ,so would support an Rv .
    The plastic ones would be fine for you as long as the ground underneath has been dug out and replaced with stone in layers and given adequate compaction,then lay the blocks on a bed of sand, fill with topsoil and seed.
    Grasscrete are a good make
