The WPC DIY Decking Tiles adopt a clip design for easier installation. When renovating outdoor space, you may wonder if it is workable to directly place the Tiles on the grass. This article will answer your question.

WPC Decking Tiles cannot be directly laid on the grass. Grassland is not a dry area. After rain, water will accumulate on the grass and cannot be discharged from the bottom. Direct contact between water and the tile can damage it. The decking tiles on the grass are also not conducive to air circulation, and a lack of airflow can lead to the growth of mold and bacteria on the tiles. On the other hand, grass may grow in the gaps between deck tiles, and the tiles will block sunlight from shining on the grassland, causing the grass to wither or die.
