Has anybody got any experience of this stuff...

I want to put it down out the front of my house, hoping it will look like a lawn but i'll be able to park cars on it

Yeah I have used it on a few jobs, it certainly holds up to the traffic well, there is also a plastic alternative that's not as 'in your face', and once it's established then it works a treat, I done a school car park last year with it, took a while for the grass to get growing and knit it all together, (can't drive on it until grass is established) but now I regularly go past and see 7.5 tonners on it, and it looks as good and level as the day it went down, called acro ground guard I think, reckon mine came from keyline

Ps, what ever you use, don't get suckered into retail prices, they have a horrific mark up on these things, I think I paid around £1 per tile or just under, it really is a piece of piss to lay.

Just the look of it dont like it when ever I have seen it it ends up looking a mess and never looks good maybe that is beacuse its poorly maintained I don't know but each to thier own I got family who later the stuff outside there plots and they regretted it

Fair enough Cushty.

Thanks for the input. I need to see some before I decide.

If Rabid is right maybe the stuff you saw hadn't established yet?

Maybe but my personal likeness is simple Tarmac or gravel with a good membrane under cannot stand grass weeds coming through
