2. Quick & Easy
You can get a beach in 30 minutes. That’s all it takes to assemble and install a MuckMat — 30-minutes! The rigid frame fits in pockets sewn into the fabric. Frame pieces connect by simply slipping one end into the next.

8. Sand makes MuckMat work even better
Our fabric and grids are designed to hold sand and gravel (in road construction). Adding sand firms it up even more.
9. Clean your MuckMat right in the lake
It’s easy, you might even enjoy it. You need to clean off silt, or weeds will eventually be able to grow. Use a push broom, a lake rake (upside down) — or a squeegee! Sweep it (just like you would any floor) right on the lake bottom. How often you clean it is up to you — a couple times a year should do.
10. Costs less than a dock section, or a season of chemicals
And a MuckMat will last a lot longer. The cost of a MuckMat over 10 years works out to about the cost of dinner for two, once a year — and MuckMats have zero calories.
11. Winter won’t hurt it — REALLY!
Leave it in the lake! Ice won’t bother it and yes — MuckMat will be there in the spring. The only reason to take it out is if you have to. Which brings up “permits.”
Do you need a permit?
In most states, “seasonal” like roll-in docks and swim rafts require no permit. Some states require permits for “permanent” structures like fixed docks and seawalls. A MuckMat can be either “seasonal” or “permanent.” If it’s installed in spring and taken out in the fall — it’s “seasonal.” Adding sand makes it “permanent.” States that allow sanding, also allow (or require) soil barriers to preserve sand — and MuckMat is the best “soil barrier” there is! If you’re not sure, you can check with the regulating agency in your state or province.
