thanks you raise a good point about the dog ....we were thinking trying to keep a corner free of cover for just that reason....but can't always predict.

Have not seen the rubber chips which sound like a good idea...will look around.

Hello Alanea, Pros are, Lightweight, cost-effective, easy to remove and top up, suppresses weeds and look attractive!Cons are They rot, (eventually) can be blown around and in my personal experience, camouflage dog dirt really well.An alternative could be Rubber chippings. I used to use them in England and were again, lightweight, easy to remove/top up, recycled and attractive colours. Not sure on the availability here in France though yet.Good luck, Glen.
