As mid-summer’s day approaches and the nation’s lockdown spirits are lifted by the chance to soak up the sun in gardens by day and relax during alfresco dining on warm evenings, attention turns to the nation’s patios – which all too often have lost their sparkle.
Dirty, cracked patio slabs, ugly concrete areas and dated crazy paving do little to enhance the atmosphere of an ‘outdoor room’ and cannot be replaced without significant investment – with many households unwilling to call-in a landscaper or builder during these current times of financial uncertainty. Similarly, households may be cautious about covering old slabs with timber decking, which was height of popularity during the Ground Force era but has since become notorious for slippery, rotting timber that requires regular pressure washing and maintenance.
Fortunately, Primeur’s Recycled Rubber Deck Tiles, available in steel-grey and earth shades, offer a modern, cost-effective solution that can makeover the most unappealing of hardstandings in a flash. Installing these clever tiles on top of dated hard landscaping is a breeze, even for households who have never dabbled at DIY.
Suitable for covering any hard surface, such as concrete or existing paving, Recycled Rubber Deck Tiles feature Primeur’s smart Clip & Lock system, allowing easy installation with no tools required. Unlike timber decking, the tiles are maintenance-free – they won’t rot, fade, stain or crack – despite extremes in weather; nor will tiles attract mildew and mould that results in decking turning green and becoming slippery. Drainage holes within the tiles allow water to drain away safely.
Primeur’s Jenny Douthwaite said: “Despite the gradual easing of lockdown, the limited availability of overseas flights and prospect of 14 days’ quarantine on return means that foreign holidays are off the cards this summer for much of the population, while many UK holiday destinations remain closed at the current time. It’s therefore no surprise that households are setting their sights on staycations, and are looking to improve patios for family entertaining but without breaking the bank.
“Anyone seeking to create a contemporary setting for barbecues, outdoor dining and garden furniture need look no further than Primeur’s Recycled Rubber Deck Tiles. These hardwearing and non-slip squares can be laid over existing surfaces in a matter of minutes, transforming unsightly hardstandings into wow-factor outdoor rooms that boost any home’s kerb appeal, but without the cost, inconvenience and mess that goes hand-in-hand with calling in a builder to construct a new patio or deck.”
Recycled tyres are the special ingredient behind Primeur’s garden innovations. Globally, 2.5billion tyres are produced every year, creating a huge volume of waste when they come to the end of their serviceable life. With each tyre containing over 200 ingredients, it can take 80 years for a waste tyre to decompose – but 6kg of rubber crumb can be recycled from just one tyre and reformed into ingenious new garden products, preventing a mountain of waste from ending up in landfill.
Primeur’s Recycled Rubber Deck Tiles are available in earth-coloured Barnboard (45x45cm) or steel grey-coloured Cosmopolitan, offered in 30x30cm or 45x45cm sizes. They are available from stockists including Greenfingers.com, where a pack of six 30x30cm Deck Tiles has an RRP of £28.99.
