Rubber patio pavers


Has anyone used these? I like the idea for my 16x16 patio because they are light and easy to install. I can't really get good info on what to do for a base for them... The same as for stone pavers? 4" crusher dust, then sand? Landscape fabric under the pavers? Glued down?

Rubber patio pavers


maybe this will help. The only negative thing I've read is the possibility of fading in direct sunlight.

Rubber patio pavers


The biggest benefit of rubber patio pavers is its safety features. They are much more shock absorbent than stone, making them an ideal choice for patios that will be used by small children or elderly people.

Rubber patio pavers


I have a few a the bottom of my (very low) deck stairs in case my toddler takes a header off them. Haven't had them long enough to comment on durability.
The bit of research I did pointed to them only being used over existing hard surfaces like patios, sidewalks... didn't se anything on use over crushed stone. If it's compacted really well I bet they'd be fine, but for the $$$ you need to be sure.
