Really happy with this footing. John was great to deal with. I was worried about the colors but after a few weeks it blended in well.

I was very impressed with Jennifer at performance footing and this product. It made an immediate difference and was easy for me to install with my daughters. Will probably order a few more bags for our indoor soon!
