Rated 5 out of 5Â by Judy Easy DIY transformation
We got these tiles to put on our screen-enclosed cement slab patio. They were easy to install and in a few hours our patio was transformed into a classy, welcoming space. It's comfortable underfoot, and the tiles also help absorb sound. We opted to use more clips than the instructions call for -- we attached every tile together, not just the perimeter. Some reviewers complained about the tiles not fitting well together, but by using more clips we had no problem and no complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by DIYdani Great look!
I love this tile!
I bought the tiles to spruce up the balcony at my apt where I cannot put down anything permanent.
It's perfect so far.
I live I rainy Florida, so I will check periodically for any mold underneath.
Since my balcony is fenced so to speak, I did not find a need for the clips, but they will slip if you don't have defined boundaries. They cut ok with the little hand saw I had, but I would rather have had something electric.
I added black beach pebbles to fill in around them.
Can't seem to get the pic to upload right side up.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Litlcoco Looks good but installation was trickey.
Bought this product in the earth tone to cover a deck that had seen it's better days. As I started to lay the tiles down and apply the clips as recommended I ran into a problem right off the bat. The tiles didn't seems to fit the clips. The holes on the bottom of the tiles for the clips were cut to far from the edge so the clips didn't reach. I tried several different tiles and several different ways to lay the tiles but when it was all said and done they just didn't fit. I ordered 56 tiles and wasn't going to haul them back to the store so I just laid them down with no clips. I guess I will see how that works. They look great just don't know if they will stay in place. Have my fingers crossed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by REVoigt Great Looking and easy to use
I put these in a section of my yard right outside my screened in patio where we have not been able to get grass to grow in order to have a nice looking and useful area as well as prevent from tracking mud into the house. It was not cheap; but it looks nicer and is probably cheaper than pouring concrete and is definitely cheaper and easier than using "pavers". I have only had them down for a couple weeks so I don't know for sure how they will hold up over time; but they seem to be a quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by snelsonohio Patio looks great!
We covered an 18' x 18' raised concrete patio with Flagstone Earth tiles. We put a 1" x 8" board around the exposed 3 sides and set it about an inch above to form a barrier to keep the tiles in place. We started in the most used corner and did most of the first row on each side first, going back to the corner and continuing from there. Although we had a border, we used the clips on each tile as it went down to help line up the tiles. As I had read in previous reviews, the tiles are not consistent in size and many varied by 1/4". Corners do not meet squarely, but we feel we can live with that. After we had 6 or so rows done then we would go back and remove the clips from the middle rows (all accept the two outside rows). This was to cut down on the cost of the clips, since we had a border to contain the tiles. Cutting the tiles was difficult. We tried a jigsaw as recommended by the manufacturer, but found that it did not work very well. We ended up using a box cutter (also recommended) and found it very labor intensive, but it worked. So far we are pleased with the end product, but we are concerned about keeping it clean and wondering how much of a problem the groves in the pattern will be. Our leaf blower works great for dry stuff, but we have dogs and only time will tell how we will keep it clean in wet and muddy weather.We will probably use a power washer.
