Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bassoonjim Good, unbreakable alternative to step stones
These pavers are nice for a walkway that I put going down a modest grade in my yard from the house to a car-barn about 60 feet away. I shaved the underlying dirt to flat, not quiet level mount areas and placed the pavers in the prepared spaces to act as mini steps going down the grade. These "steps" have small enough vertical increments that running the mower over them is no problem. My hope is that in winter, if I keep them clear, walking to the car will not be treacherous and not as muddy in the spring as it had been. The down side is that the grass is growing onto them and that requires a lot of hand trimming

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Crystal LOVE these tiles!
I bought these to make a deck out of my fire escape. They were super easy to put together, it only took me a few minutes. Make sure you buy enough of the clips, I ended up making a second trip. Each tile has two grooves on each side (8 total) for the clips. The design looks really neat when you get it all together. The stamped pattern allows water to drain off when it rains so they are not slippery. Because of the odd size of my fire escape, I need to cut some in half to finish the edge, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I hope the edges don't crumble! (Will update this when I finish.)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ARLD Easy to install and looks great!
We installed these on our back patio which is 15'x18' and has a border for planting. I got enough clips for every tile, but ended up only using them around the edges. There is a bit of irregularity in the tiles--they're not all perfectly square and some are a bit wider than others. This made it pretty difficult to get clips to fit through the whole thing, but just securing the edge pieces is perfectly sufficient.
The color ("earth") is fantastic--dark, warm brown--and the pattern is beautiful once it's all laid out! We edged the envirotiles with some light edging stones and put red mulch around the adjacent plants; it looks SO good, and I think it will be easy to maintain.
It took 3 adults an afternoon to lay all of the tiles (including spreading sand to level out the area), and another afternoon or two to finish up with edging and finishing touches. The tiles are easy to cut with a sharp box cutter.
Minus 1 star for quality, because of the slight irregularity in shape and in color. It doesn't impact the end result or how good it looks, and I'm sure most pavers are somewhat irregular, but it does add to the frustration of installing these. Otherwise, they're great quality (solid, heavy duty, feels like they'll withstand weather and foot traffic well)!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Precise Definitely not a quality product!
The 1st order had 1/3 that were not square, and 1/3 that were either over sized or undersized. Could nod not (that is not) use them since the seams would not line up. The replacement order was sorted by HD and was better but still had 1/5 that were not square and 1/5 that were over sized only. I corrected the oversize problem by cutting them on my table saw. I overcame the not square by using good ones from the 1st order.
This was a real hassle but i wanted the "rugged look" that the tiles had. The manufacturer needs to make the tiles oversized and then die cut individually to achieve the repeatable size control that is needed for easy installation. As they are now, the tiles are NOT easy to install.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Robdiyer Looks good
The tiles are made well and are very durable. The installation was a bit tricky. I placed them over a 12 x 20 painted concrete. I tried the clips but they proved to be a hassle. They would not always line up and fit properly. I went to contractor adhesive. No problem laying but I have some advice. Use a laser to keep the lines straight. The tiles are rubber so the are not perfectly square and need trimming at times. Use a good quality utility knife to make your cuts. The tiles are pretty easy to cut but need a good sharp blade. They look good when installed but need same colored caulk to fill in the seams that are obviously too far apart. Overall, pretty happy. Also, they retain heat from sunlight and get very hot when walking on them with bare feet. They are tires after all.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mm4711 Highly recommended!
I'm redoing a step off my lanai. I'm using them on top of concrete and keepng them secure with Everedge. I love Enviro-tiles. You might think they are expensive, but not really for the quality and ease of use. I've had the flat rock stepping stones for years. They have never faded in the Florida sun. Occasionally needs a wash because of summer mildew, but not much. They are good also as a safety measure for not slipping. I ordered on line. Home Depots online service is fast, easy, and excellent. TX!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Luther Not easy to install to my satisfaction
The tiles are not sufficiently of consistent dimensions to allow one to assemble a deck without having major gaps between tiles. I attempted to fill those gaps with a colored caulk with very mixed results. I even bought an excess of needed tiles as I had been warned by others that "one needs to select for mismatched tiles". I simply did not have enough. The concept of these is good, the manufacture of them is lacking

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KelsoDave Great product, easy to use; don't forget to buy the little clips
Great product, easy to install. You'll need two clips between every edge with another paver. I had gravel down underneath it to start, but also bought a bag of the cheapest sand ... that made the ground very flat and hopefully won't settle too much; so far it is working great!
I use my blower to clear any rocks or leaves off ... little rocks get kind of stuck; but are easy to remove.
You may notice slight variance in the color, even within the same box.
