Drainage Mat For Outdoor Planter Area

Posted on: November 19th, 2014 by

Landscape Drainage Mat For The Home!I believe we’re now in the 3rd year of Summer here in California, and it can be miserable. Most everybody from other states I speak to act jealous of my permanent summer, and talk about how I must love it so much. Wrong! I love not dealing with Snow and excessive rain, but excessive sweat can be just as irritating.  I will put off getting my mail for days because it’s so hot I don’t want to step foot outside.

On top of myself being uncomfortable sometimes, my poor dog is no different. She’s as bad about going outside to do her business as I am about mail. My poor baby will hold it until night to avoid the heat. Being the spoiled Diva she is, she gets to spend all day in a nice air conditioned house and has become accustomed to the comfort.

My sisters dogs have a huge yard, which is great for their exercise but she was telling me they spend most their time in the shade of the planters. They then proceed to bring their dust into the house. I told her about my idea to use interlocking rubber floor tiles in the planter, but she didn’t want to spend the time drilling holes for drainage. We decided a drainage mat would be a better fit. The holes are big enough to let sun and water through to the soil, and her dogs can still lie in the shade without getting dirt all over the house.  Additionally when she has to stand in her planter to trim roses or pick fruit, she won’t be standing in dirt or mud and now her or her dogs won’t track dirt onto the patio which will save hours of sweeping a month.

Our Drainage mats come is a variety of sizes, including tiles, and are pretty easy to cut to fit any area you have.
