Hi Andy we have used it here at the botanics for a few temporary and long 
term projects. My comments below are what we've found here

1. Quite stiff and can be hard to man-handle in to place.
2. Can be quite slippy especially with some smooth soled footwear. 
3. Needs a lot of ground pins to ensure it doesn’t lift and form a trip 
hazard.
4. Found to be a trip hazard for those in high-heels!
5. Difficult to lift after use - pulling out of the overgrown grass.
6. We had in rolls and they are a pain to store.
7. Intensifies the wear at edges and ends.

But effective at reducing wear overall :)

So we use it in wet summers and pre events at pre-identified wear points

Hope that helps

Martyn

Hi
Has anyone used this for temporary car parking, driveways within RPA? and was 
it successful?
