Enhance Your Outdoor Spaces with Faux Stone Pavers Made from Recycled Tires

Share this on:

Flagstone patios, cobblestone walkways, and meadering stone pathways add a lovely natural look to any homestead.  But if you’re a do-it-yourselfer looking for a durable, eco-friendly and light-weight material for these kinds of projects, a great option is to use pavers made from recycled rubber tires.  With 242 million tires being discarded or burned every year in the U.S. alone, finding alternative ways to handle them is a significant environmental concern.  By recycling rubber tires into new products, innovative companies are helping to reduce:  the great demand on our landfills; air and water pollution; and the spread of disease from insects and rodents who make discarded tires their breeding grounds.

So, where can you find recycled rubber pavers for residential, commercial, recreational, and equine applications?

  • Rubber Designs offers 4 shapes/styles:  cobblestone (pictured here), flagstone, flexstone (stepping stones), and milestone (pavers with an artistic design).  A variety of natural hues are available.
  • Close the Loop’s pavers come in square or hexagon shapes and are available in 4 colors.
  • Diamond Safety Concepts offers hexagonally-shaped pavers in 5 colors.
