Interlocking Pavers $.74 Orig $4.18


http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?actio...372&lpage=none
Item #: 181372 Model: 181372
All interlocking pavers are made of natural stone
9 square stones are attached to a plastic frame to form a 12”X12” square
Each 12”X12” paver can be snapped together to create a larger patio
5 other colors are available
NOT AVAILABLE AT ALL LOCATIONS


Are these suitable for rugged outdoor use?

The fact that they discounted them from more than 4 bucks a SqFt to .75 cents per SqFt should give you an indication of the worth of the concept.

I'm sure they are worth .74
But I could be wrong....I have underestimated the crappiness of cheap, discounted, discontinued, Lowes building supplies before

Ditto..that is not a discount, that is a "can't even get this stuff out of our way unless we give it away" price. Obviously a big flop item, which you would never be able to repair/replace/ or add additional product to because it is not going to be manufactured any more.

They are not real pavers. They just give you a tile-like appearance.

They have no strength on their own and do not even have a standard to meet for durability.

I don't think they were able to get $4.00/sf for them in the first place (advertised asking/list price).

Are the Vargas girls coming over?
Seriously, how thick are they? Just because no one purchased them, doesn't mean they have no worth. The space between the stone is too wide for sand only. It looks too thin for paver type installation. What was the planned application? Now what's plan"B"?
