According to Mathematica's helpfile

xstyle = {Dashing[{0.05, 0.05}], Yellow};
ystyle = {Dashing[{0.1, 0.1}], Green};

Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 10}, PlotStyle -> Red,
   GridLines -> {({#1, xstyle} & ) /@ {0, Pi, 2*Pi, 3*Pi},
     ({#1, ystyle} & ) /@ {-1, -0.5, 0, 0.5, 1}},
   Background -> GrayLevel[0.2]];

works fine.
