'How To' envirotile™ - DIY Landscape and Patio Designs


Every June I get excited because I know the warm weather has finally arrived and my outdoor projects can begin. When you have a patio that can entertain yourself and guests, it’s a beautiful feeling.  

Most are happy to find projects that take less time to do and more time to enjoy. envirotile™ is an eco-friendly product made from 100% recycled tires diverted from landfills. It's lightweight, great for the environment and looks fabulous!

Here are step-by-step instructions on how to install envirotile™

First, visit www.envirotile.ca and choose the color (earth, grey or terra cotta); then pick the style. After this, visit your local Home Depot store or go online at www.homedepot.ca or www.homedepot.com to purchase product.

 Remember to measure the square footage and calculate how many tiles are needed before visiting Home Depot or purchasing the product online.

The tiles are easy to install, just follow these simple steps:


1. Calculate the center of the space by measuring the length and width; divide the dimensions in two. Mark the center of the space to identify the approximate starting point for the installation.


2. Begin to lay the tiles from the center point of the space in both directions towards the edges. Fill in each of the four quadrants that you've created.



3. Upon reaching the edges, you may need to cut the tiles to fit within the desired space. To cut the tile, simply use a heavy duty utility knife. To fit tiles around irregular shapes
 (i.e. pipe) make a pattern                                             onto the tile and then cut with                                             the utility knife.



For a great utiltiy knife we recommend Olfa's Heavy Duty knife; available at Home Depot stores in Canada and the US.
