Introducing HandyGrid. A light and flexible system that can be installed easily in just a few simple steps. HandyGrid the most durable geocell because it is made of recycled plastic bags(LDPE)! All you need to install HandyGrid are a few common household tools: a level, a shovel and a rake.
HandyGrid’s ability to deflect tons of weight effortlessly means there’s very little digging to do. In fact, most HandyGrid hot tub/spa bases only require excavating 4-6 inches. When filled, a HandyGrid base is strong enough to support up to 6,000 tons, firmly.

DIY Quick & Easy Shed Base
A shed is convenient. Building a base for your shed used to be inconvenient, until now.
HandyGrid makes your shed base convenient and easy to install yourself.
With a few common household tools, you can install your solid shed base, easily, in just a few simple steps.
HandyGrid is made of tough recycled plastic bags(LDPE). HandyGrid is designed specifically to contain gravel and to spread weight over a larger surface which makes your shed and everything inside it feel much lighter to the soil(like snowshoes)!
Decorate your base with coloured gravel or finish it in grass to make it blend into the surrounding area.
HandyGrid got its name because of how versatile it is for virtually all Do-It-Yourself landscaping projects. Whether you install HandyGrid on the surface, or underneath the ground to help protect the surface from moving and rutting, keeping HandyGrid “handy” will make your yard work a whole lot easier.
Our customers love HandyGrid for: - Shed base - Hot tub/spa base - Permeable driveway with decorative stone - RV parking - Extended driveway - Grass driveway extension - Boat ramps - Temporary parking
We’re proud that HandyGrid is made from 100% recycled Low-Density Polyethylene(LDPE) which is commonly found in heavy-duty plastic bags. Using this plastic exclusively, makes HandyGrid flexible enough to stay malleable in extreme temperatures without breaking.
Once recycled, the plastic undergoes a thorough and complex manufacturing process called injection moulding. Taking the time to meticulously manufacture HandyGrid is what makes it stand out as one of the most durable plastics you’ll encounter. It will never decompose and will outlast virtually any other surface by years and years. It’s no wonder so many professional landscapers use our systems.
When the soil contained within HandyGrid is subjected to pressure, as in the case of a load support application, it causes lateral stresses on perimeter cell walls. The 3D zone of confinement reduces the lateral movement of soil particles while vertical loading on the contained infill results in high lateral stress and resistance on the cell-soil interface.
HandyGrid’s design incorporates two very important features. Weight deflecting and permeability.
Permeable surfaces are becoming the norm these days and HandyGrid is the best system for the task. The strong construction and materials used to make HandyGrid ensures that any permeable base is well reinforced.
Allowing water to flow through the system quickly is important because it keeps stormwater out of our precious lakes and rivers and makes it go back into the ground naturally. HandyGrid reduces pollution and will reduce the risk of flooding by a lot when installed optimally.
