- Great Ballast
Why anyone would think this product is attractive enough to use as mulch is beyond me. It might make you feel eco-conscious because you're helping to keep tires out of landfills, but its best use is as ballast in the vegetable garden: If you use any kind of row covers over your beds, cut this stuff into appropriate lengths and use it to hold down the material at the ends of the bed/row. It's heavy and it really grips any kind of spun-bonded polyester or screening so windy days are no problem. And it can be stored outside.
I absolutely love these recycled rubber borders & mats. They suppress the weed growth while allowing my flowers & shrubs to thrive by keeping the soil slightly damp. I attribute the successful survival of my plants to these recycled rubber mats. It is also much easier to trim around these borders. Saves me a lot of back breaking garden work, looks nice & lasts for years.

When my raised garden was planted, I wondered what to do to keep the grass away from the frame to make cutting the grass easier for my husband.

- Hope it keeps him and his
Tree ring: Haven't used it yet, but if it works like the edging I will love it
The Edging is wonderful. It makes everything look neater. I only hope that it will keep my weed whacking husband far enough away from the flowers. He has a habit of cutting them off.
Stakes work well holding down the edging.
I would and already have told my friends about it. Some have seen it and are or ding.
I do however think that you should sell them in larger rolls. I am edging my whole yard and the rolls are just to short.
- Blends with mulch
Used this edging around a garden on a slope where water runoff was a problem.....bark mulch kept washing away. Blends nicely with my mulch. Water continues to run off, but this rubber mulch stays in place.....love it!
- Easy To Install
being used against a garden fence to keep long grass away from the fenceline. Mows over well and installs easily.
- Weeds grow through it
I put this between lawn and ground cover a year ago. Now the grass is growing up through it and so is the ground cover. Yes, it was better than bark mulch for one season, but now I can't pull or dig up the weeds that are growing through it, so it looks terrible. Vertical edging would have served better.
