If the area you want to cover is patios decks or pool sides then grass outdoor carpeting would be a better solution because it is stain and moisture resistant. Its also protected from fading in the sun. If it will be exposed to moisture it should have a marine backing. This will prevent mold and mildew problems. Astro turf is also used for golf courses play grounds and athletic fields. Plush carpets are often discussed in outdoor carpet reviews. If your project is in an area that wont be exposed to direct sun or weather then you can choose plush carpet. Plush carpet is good for high traffic areas and is softer than the other types of outdoor carpeting.
Although obviously designed for use around boats and pools marine carpet is also useful in any place where moisture might be an issue such as in basements or garages. Marine carpet is available by the roll similar to indoor carpeting making it useful in covering large areas and reducing the number of seams. It can often be cut to exactly fit the area to be carpeted and can be applied using carpet glue. Most commonly available in blue and green marine carpeting can also be found in brown gray gold and sometimes other colors as well. It can also be found in a few different patterns. Such variety of available colors and patterns makes marine carpeting a popular choice among those looking for carpeting that looks good for use in and around the home.
The other big family of outdoor carpets is based on imitating indoor styles but adding waterproofing. The materials are mostly synthetic but plant-based or woolen outdoor carpets also exist. Most have a water-repellent backing and are treated to be highly mold-resistant. Plush outdoor carpets are available in different grades and you should judge them according to similar criteria than indoor ones. How thick are they? How many knots per square centimeter? What size? How is the finishing? Plus make sure to note their water-resistance. Ask if the carpet is sunlight resistant and if it has moisture resistant marine backing. These are the most important things to consider when buying outdoor carpet that will be subject to a lot of moisture. You can expect that the price will increase proportionally to density size and similar criteria.
Next benefit that you can get from using outdoor carpet tiles is the fact that damaged tile(s) can be easily replaced and new ones fixed in place of them which will save time and money.

Carrying out the installation itself is easy and what you need to do is to peel off the back of each tile and properly fix same on your floor. After doing this you should leave tiles in this position for at least 24 hours.Notwithstanding these benefits that you find with tiles it is still possible to use outdoor carpets in your immediate surroundings; I mean in your house.
