    May want to drive 10-15ft on lawn with my grove rt60s. What is the most practical pad material. Thanks

    For a one time job? Plywood. Repeat? Alturnamats.

    Either will require layers, a single won’t do.

    Double layer of 3/4 plywood should hold your rig up. One row of wood under each path, just like tradesman's picture.

    If its been raining by you like it has here, and its a swamp, I'd say wait.
