Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LBinAZ Not as nice as I had expected
I recently used envirotile on our back patio. I love the look, and with 4 dogs, kids and a pool, I needed something that could take a beating, wasn't slippery when wet, and is easy to clean. The tiles are perfect and are very high in quality. The borders however, are another story. They are a thin plastic that clip on to the end rows of the tiles. After placing a few down, I decided to go without them. Not only did they look kind of cheap, but I also had doubts about them holding up under the brutal Arizona sun and heavy traffic. Home depot was great, as usual, I returned the borders and am now enjoying my new tile.

The border is a great idea and I was sold on it in the store. However, to install, it does not allow the border to be cut. If you cut it, the extensions that hold the tile underneath are now removed and will not hold securely. If an edge is cut, the corner borders will not fit in the straight border either.
Bottom line - your patio, deck etc has the be the exact size of the tiles as they are constructed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dave They fit well together, but I was concerned that they would not hold up well unless they were glued together.
I only ordered a package of these to see what they were like. I decided that they would most likely crack and fade. When I put in my order in for all the tile, I choose not to use or purchase the finished edges. If you really needed an edge, one could easily find a different product to trim out the tiles. Mine were used on an upper bacony so I should get by without them.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by jaghomeva I wouldn't recommend the borders.
The borders are a good idea, but the color does not exactly match the tile color. It was off enough for me not to use them, but I do love the tiles.

Couldn't be happier with this product! We would use it again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AlbieT envirolite pavers - yes/ border -so so
Bought the pavers and what we thought was the edging at the New Albany HD. Got home connected the pavers fairly easily. Then opened the edger pkg to find that It only contained corner edgers. The packaging covered the ends so you couldn't see that they were only corners and not both corner and straight edgers. The packaging implied both were in the package as it showed both on the labeling. On closer viewing in smaller print we saw that the package only contained corner edging. That was the only pkgs available at the store. When I searched envirolite on the internet, I found that HD was the exclusive distributor. I phoned envirolite to see if there were other HD stores in the area that might have the straight edgers in stock. The customer service person informed me that there should not have been any edger pkgs, straight or corner at the HD stores, that they had to be ordered online. She said it was due to customers opening edging pkgs. I told her that was probably due to their packaging design that shows both on the cover and that the packaging covers the ends so that you can't see what is inside. And that the pkg printing that the pkg only contains corner edging is too small and not easily noticed compared to the rest of the labeling. She also said that envirolite people were supposed to have gone to all the stores and collected all edging pkgs. Apparently they did so at the Clarksville HD where I subsequently went to try and get the straight edging, and found no edging pkgs of either type there. I believe a simple change in Envirolites packaging could resolve their problem and allow edging pkgs to be displayed and sold at HD stores. We probably would not have bought this product if we had known the difficulty we were going to experience. We received the online straight edgers order at HD, upon installation we found that the dimensions do not match up exactly, so that at corners we have corner edger pieces that extend about 1/2" - 1" beyond the corner. Funtionally, they are connected and working alright.
