Description

  • Scatter-proof recycled rubber walkway is a long-lasting alternative to loose bark mulch
  • Walkway stays put, holds its shape and cushions your feet
  • Keeps feet clean and dry in muddy areas

Here's a smart alternative to bark mulch, made from 100% recycled tires. A landscape backing holds the shredded rubber in place, while it also suppresses weed growth. Each 22" by 72" section is easy to install, and the 2" lip of fabric down one side ensures continuous coverage over wider areas. We recommend anchoring the mulch with our Earth Staples, sold separately.

Specifications

  • 100% recycled rubber with landscape fabric backing
  • Water-permeable
  • 22" W x 6' L x 1/4" thick

    Comments about Recycled Rubber Walkway:

    I just bought my second one of these, after the first one worked great for a year. I use them between raised beds and it's a very easy way to keep weeds down and assure good footing. It looks good as it blends in with the ground. Not sure how long they last, but at least two years. It is hard to take up and move after a season, though, as things grow into it, and if you pull on it it can pull apart, so don't plan on moving it.

      I used these walkways outdoors between my 3 x 6 raised beds, also from Gardeners Supply Co. They are perfect between the beds and give a nice finished appearance to my garden. So far they have held up really well.

        Comments about Recycled Rubber Walkway:

        This product was installed as a "walk way" for a slightly sloped area of the garden. It was super easy to install and looks great! It gives just the right amount of "grip" so that the slope is no longer slippery.
        Perfect for our place!

          Comments about Recycled Rubber Walkway:

          I originally bought these mats 20 years ago or so, and didn't properly get rid of all weeds before laying them down, thus weeds did grow through after several years. Now I've finally dug
          them all up and bought new mats, still same fine
          quality and ease of installation. I like the way
          they look too, just like mulch! I recommend these
          highly.

            I had a long slanted area that could not be filled in (drain field) and I still need to get two more of them.

            Comments about Recycled Rubber Walkway:

            I ordered two of the mats for two separate uses - one for a dirt cover in a walkway in the garden and one at the entrance to the side porch. Both uses, so far, are working nicely. One caution: the rubber itself is fragile, loosely woven. However, there is a back mat of solid, lightweight material that assists in holding it all together. Walking on these mats has not damaged them and the water drifts off and away.

            Mulch poorly adhered to backing

            Comments about Recycled Rubber Walkway:

            I was tripping on roots and mole uprootings in stone pathways..much smoother to walk over preventing falls.
            The mulch is applied carelessly to the backing in gathers and crooked so a roll won't last long. Mulch chips off after 1 month use.

              I used this product to make a walkway behind the shrubs in the back yard. My dog would run behind those shrubs daily to get to the back door. On rainy days this meant there was always a cause to wash her feet. Now my problem is solved. The walkway was easy to tack down with the offered staples and now it runs all along the once muddy route. Great product.

              we used the product for a long pathway with curves. it installed relatively easily but product was inconsistent in thickness. some portions of the 'strips' barely had attached rubber material. I would give it another try.

                I thought it would be a little thicker, however, works well as a garden path in my landscaping.
