over grass deliver a great flooring solution for outdoor parties, events, and traditional patio alternatives. They are designed to easily install over grass, so laying them is a breeze. They are typically super low maintenance and a breeze to clean - two features that make them so popular.

Of the high quality, interlocking patio tiles over grass that Greatmats offers, the following three are among the best and the easiest to clean:
  1. Perforated StayLock Tile
  2. Portable Outdoor Tile
  3. Ergo Matta Perforated Outdoor Tile

These three products are truly among the best you can buy if you’re looking for low maintenance, easy-to-clean and high performing interlocking patio tiles over grass.

GreatmatsPerforated StayLock Tile is a great option if you like a clean and classic, black look for your patio flooring or outdoor social space. (It’s also available in color options.)

These tiles are easy to install over grass without glue or adhesives, as they feature an active locking connector design that allows the tile to “float” over an outdoor surface. The tiles are 12 inches by 12 inches and feature a cushioned pedestal base. The surface boasts a non-slip texture and has a 20 inch fall height rating.

This product is made in the USA of durable PVC plastic material that is oil resistant, acid resistant, and waterproof. The tiles are designed to allow for excellent drainage. Once installed, they will not separate unintentionally, and they offer a quick and easy DIY installation.

To clean these tiles, all you need is a broom or leaf blower, hose, and for a deeper cleaning - a solution of vinegar and hot water or baking soda and hot water with a soft scrub brush or mop.

  1. Remove dust, dirt, and debris from the surface of the tile using a broom or leaf blower.
  2. Hose down the tile.
  3. If a deeper cleaning process is necessary, use the solution of your choice, mop or scrub the surface of the tile. The solution should be at least 75 percent water and 25 percent vinegar or baking soda. It is fast and simple to clean with vinegar or baking soda and hot water.
  4. Either spot scrub with a brush or mop - wringing the mop out first.
