Eco GreenGrid
Eco Greengrid is a “green” asphalt alternative known as “permeable pavement”.  It is an eco-friendly alternative to paving and allows the flow of water through to the soil below, preventing the numerous environmental issues associated with water runoff. Eco Greengrid is an economical and environmentally sustainable alternative to asphalt, concrete or pavement. It can be used for pedestrian, livestock and vehicular traffic and is strong enough on which to drive large tractors and trucks.  Installing Eco Greengrid in and around stalls, paddocks and barns allows for horse’s hooves to remain dry and healthy in any climate. It can also be used in trails, driveways, parking areas and landscape pathways to create a permanent mud free solution. Eco Greengrid has been engineered and designed to give you a stronger and more durable product per square foot that will last a lifetime. The design is based on the snowshoe principle, which allows for more weight to be evenly distributed throughout creating a very strong and stable area that will not sink down. Pieces can be easily taken apart, put together and cut to create any shape desired. See installation videos on Ecogreengrid.com, Facebook page and you tube channel. Multi-pallet discounts offered.  Call for prices and shipping quotes to your area. See ad on page 16.

EKO Sweep
EKO Sweep paddock groomer and grounds sweeper is the perfect maintenance groomer and manure collector for any farm, ranch, park or home with livestock, uneven grounds, and irregular patches of dirt or holes that can cause injury. When towed behind a quad or similar vehicle, the EKO Sweep can groom up to two acres of any type of terrain or pasture in about an hour. EKO Sweep is an easy, efficient and chemical-free way to help control worms and parasites for healthier livestock. The brushes are adjustable and when set to rotate at ground level, it will remove small debris from your paddocks such as leaves, small stones, weed blooms and trash simply by driving over them while simultaneously breaking up loose dirt clods, which are commonly formed in horse paddocks. Conversely in regions with soil borne pathogens the brushes can be set to collect the manure, weed blooms and debris from the grasses without disturbing the soil. Because it is not motor operated, there are no fuel costs and it produces very little noise. It is safe for all and it can be used around your animals while they are still in their paddocks. Over time, the EKO Sweep creates a smoother, greatly improved appearance and functionality of paddocks and grounds. See ad on page 20.

J.D. Burns Construction
J.D. gained extensive knowledge about different types of soils years ago while working on major projects such as the Dana Point Marina in Southern California, blasting rock and moving more than a million cubic yards of sand and rock to create the existing marina that is seen today. He spent many years’ mass-grading in Mission Viejo for many of the major subdivisions, including the roads, water and power. In addition, he has been the contractor for a major flood control channel for the Irvine Company which entailed rock, sand, grading and ground water control. This experience and the love of his horses and livestock have created a refined ability to produce footings for every equestrian need. For example, to create just a basic arena, J.D. prefers to grade with a laser and compact the existing material to drain one percent max; the water should drain off (sheet flow) yet leave the existing material on site. J.D. prefers this method over grading with a crown. When you crown the arena, the drainage high point is in the center and drains off both sides. Over time and use, this crown can be lost. Contact J.D. to discuss all of your grading and footing needs. Once you have him on-site, stand back and watch his skill and artistry in moving your ground around. See ad on page 14.
