  • the story

Floor It!

Does working out in the garden leave you knees feeling flat-out tired? Well, this earth-friendly gardening mat will have you pumped up about getting your hands on those weeds again. Its rubber exterior is made from recycled industrial tires. Because this is the material from the inner tube, rather than the tough exterior, the surface is surprisingly smooth and flexible. Not only is the material extremely durable, but it's also naturally slip resistant, water resistant, and abrasion resistant. The rubber conceals an inch-thick cushion of anti-fatigue foam, for an easier ride on your knees, and the rounded shape of the mat gives you the freedom to shift left and right without having to re-position it. Mat comes with a sturdy, attached nylon handle for carrying. Handmade in Milwaukee, WI.

    Comments about RECYCLED TUBE KNEELING PAD:

    I asked for and received this as a Christmas present. It is precisely what I was hoping for!

    My knees don't hurt when I'm planting flowers in my garden with the tire pad, and it cleans off easily. It also helps minimize back pain since I can focus on keeping my shoulders back rather than worrying about my knees AND my back.

    Love that it is a recycled good & reasonably priced.

        Perfect for my husband, who spends so much time weeding our gardens. Unlike other garden kneelers,there aren't any side bars to restrict movement. The curved design can be used on the grouond in the regular "U" shape or inverted as needed for the working space.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Well protected with bubble wrap in the box. Box was appropriate size for item.

          I bought two, one for myself and one for my sister, and we've both found the kneeler very useful. The size and shape make it possible to shift position to reach another part of the garden without having to move the kneeler all the time. The handle makes it easy to transport by hooking over a shoulder leaving my hands free to carry other things. There's enough padding for me to be comfortable using it over uneven ground and rough stonework. I'd been looking for a sturdy, durable kneeler and I found it in this product.

          I love this product. I bought it for myself, and then bought it for my sister one year later, since I liked it so much. It is very durable, lots of room to move on, and easy to carry with handle. Easy to wash off, too. Only issue was that it came with its own dirt already on it. I had to explain to my sister that, really, I bought it new, and hadn't used it. Please check product next time before shipping. It also wasn't in any sort of protective bag, and the box it was shipped in was destroyed.

              Comments about RECYCLED TUBE KNEELING PAD:

              I like to garden and I am down on my knees a lot. I have not been able to find a product that I really liked so that I can kneel comfortably when I weed and garden, until now. The recycled inner tube is a sort of half circle so that you don't have to move your garden kneeling pad around a lot, if you have one. This one is large enough so that the only thing you have to do is turn your body slightly to do the next patch of weeding or gardening that you plan to do. The padding is also very comfortable for your knees and provides extra protection for them. Although the product is large, it is easy to carry because there is a sling at one end to just put over your shoulder and move on over to the next spot you plan to work on. Also, it easily stores by hanging it up on a nail by the sling. I love it!

                The Tube Pad guards gardeners' knees and comes in handy for handymen. Would this clever cushion make doing your dirty jobs a little easier?

                I'd maybe buy it for $10. How are we as a society supposed to be convinced to buy recycled when it's priced so high? I mean you didn't have to pay for the original material, right? So why so expensive?

                Really? The picture shows a Montgomery Ward inner tube. First of all, I didn't know the made tires; second: it's not a name associated with tires; third they've been out of business for A LONG WHILE so how old is this tube. Not a market for this.

                It is too expensive but the idea that anybody can get old tires for free shows that someone is uninformed. The average passenger vehicle tire doesn't have a tube in it so these probably come from heavy equipment. Because is costs money to get rid of tires now, selling the tubes would help offset that cost. Again, at least it's made in the USA :)

                Creative. I like the rounded shape allowing the user to shift without re-positioning the mat.

                Nice idea. Easy to store, made in the USA and recycled.
