Recycled Rubber Landscaping Bricks

Recycled rubber landscaping substances help to put mountains of scrap rubber to better use. Landscaping bricks and pavers made from recycled rubber aren’t just environmentally friendly, but they also provide several benefits over traditional paving materials. Rubber pavers are lightweight, wear-resistant, non-slip, easy-to-install options to old-fashioned bricks that also happen to be great for the planet.

Composite Pavers

Composite pavers are created from a mix of recycled rubber and recycled plastic, and they’re designed to look like traditional brick pavers. They’re significantly lighter than brick or concrete pavers, and they’re less vulnerable to deterioration caused by weather and wear. Installation of composite pavers is also typically less pristine than that of traditional pavers; a few composite paver techniques mount pavers within an underlying plastic grid that keeps the pavers aligned and allows for faster installation.

Block Pavers

Basic block pavers made entirely from recycled rubber have been designed to mimic traditional bricks and landscaping pavers. Block pavers are near the dimensions of traditional bricks, and also come in larger sizes. They have the advantage of being more resistant to weather and wear than traditional bricks, and their texture makes them less slippery when wet. They may be set up more quickly than traditional brick pavers, but they must be set up with some sort of edge restraint to prevent shifting of the blocks.

Interlocking Pavers

Interlocking rubber pavers are designed with shaped profiles that interlock with each other when they’re set up, which can help prevent changing of the pavers at precisely the same time it generates a visually interesting pattern on the surface. Interlocking pavers come in a number of shapes, including dog-bone, keystone and zig-zag profiles.

Paver Tiles

Rubber brick paver tiles, such as block pavers, are intended to imitate the look of standard brick pavers, but unlike individual block pavers, paver tiles are molded with a pattern that mimics the layout of many interlocking bricks onto one large paver tile. The tiles come in sizes as large as 4 feet. They avoid the problems caused by the changing of individual pavers, and are designed for fast installation over large regions.
