matI have set up my little backyard screen house for the season. I call this my “Summer White House.” I spend a lot of time out there in the evenings and it has really become a spare room. However, one of the big challenges I have had the past couple of years is the ground. I kept the grass but it was hard to maintain and ultimately was not the most comfortable. So this year I am using one of the great mats I found from the fine folks at Mad Mats.

About Mad Mats: “All of our products are made or finished by hand – people producing artful works with incredible care and pride. That also means that no two products will be exactly alike, and that there will be some imperfections. That is the beauty of hand-made products. We adhere to best fair trade and environmental practices. We treat the people who make our products, regardless of where they are in the world, as we ourselves expect to be treated. Equally important, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint both through the materials we use and our production processes.”

These mats are made from 100% recycled plastic which is perfect for using outside – but they are so great looking you will be tempted to find a way to use them inside.
