What do you want for MOTHER’S DAY? I am not the typical woman who wants flowers and chocolates. They have never been my thing… I prefer a gift that I can use, enjoy and is practical. Believe it or not patio tiles or cork flooring tiles for sale were on my wish list this year for Mothers Day. We moved into an older home 5 years ago and we are in the process of redoing the house and yard. The back yard has this small nook that was filled with a prickly throne bushes taller than I am. Last year I spent one day chopping them all down and digging out the roots. It was nice to have them gone… but it then left me with a big dirt patch that I was not sure what to do with.
It grew a nice batch of weeds, so I cleared them all out… but once again was left with a large dirt patch. I told my hubby that I would love to put some rocks or pavers down to create a nice place to use and store our patio furniture. But I don’t have the time or energy to accomplish this project since I am just weeks away from delivering baby number five.
That is when I saw these patio tiles on the BrylaneHome site. COULD it really be as easy as they say…. could you really just take them out of the box, lay them down and have an instant patio? Well it was worth a try. But I admit I was a little nervous…. you know the saying “if it seems to good to be true….”.
Here is some info about the patio tiles

The tiles have large spikes on the bottom to help them stay in place. I smoothed out the ground the best I could, but it still had a lot of rocks and bark in it… it was also not very level. BUT I wanted to see what would happen if I tried to lay the tiles down as is. I put one in the corner, stepped on it to secure it in place… and then was on to the next one. In less than 5 minutes I had a whole row done…. HOT DIGGITY I was one excited mama. In about 20 minutes I had all the tiles laid down. It was so easy to pull them back up if I made a mistake, but they also stayed in place well with no sliding or shifting.
I now have a nice patio that I can use and store my patio furniture, umbrella and umbrella stand side table. These tiles would be perfect to take camping and use outside your RV, or for a BBQ. I love, love, love how easy there were to install and the finished product is JUST what I needed.
