A permanent puddle.”
The mat removes mud well, but you can never "shake it when dry". It holds water. It's a permanent puddle on my doorstep and has to be stepped around when you don't have muddy shoes. Can you please broadcast the help you've offered to others with the same problem. Thank you.

Impractical as an outside mat due to holding water”
Despite being advertised as an outside mat I agree with other reviewers in that without any drainage holes rain water just collects and stays in the mat which makes it unsuitable for purpose. The bristles were good at removing dirt however the holding water issue meant they were impractical. Very disappointing.

Not suitable for outdoor use”
This mat has a constant pool of water under the bristles from rain water collecting. Feet become muddier after use as a result of this which defeats the purpose of having a doormat. It does look good though and the bristles are effective so if you have it under enough shelter it may work for you.

I bought this mat a month or so ago. Whilst the bristles are indeed good for removing mud, the mat itself has no drainage holes and the rainwater collects in the mat - good for giving your shoes a good rinse I suppose! Every time it rains I have to empty the mat. The use of astroturf is good, but the design lacks practicality for outside use.

Almost too nice to walk on!”
This mat was purchased to replace a standard (boring) rectangular astroturf mat that had worn out. I was a bit hesitant about the size: large enough? and the colour: too bright? However, the size is perfect for 2 large feet, and the colour is a gentle apple more preferable, to me, than the sharper lime in the web picture. I keep going in and out just to wipe my feet!

This mat is super. It just takes a quick wipe of the feet and that's it ! I ordered one to see what it was like and now want another one, great pity it is currently unavailable. I should have ordered two at the beginning knowing that Lakeland only stock the best !

It really works”
We bought one of these to go at the bottom of the steps to our caravan as we were fed up with all the muck that was being trodden in. We were so pleased with it we bought another one for the second set of steps. These have made such a difference. As another reviewer commented they get all the muck out from the grooves in your soles so it doesn't go indoors.

The Ultimate Outdoor Mat”
by Mark Ross
The first impression of the mat is that it is too small. However when you wipe your feet you'll find it's the perfect size for footware large and small. Give your shoes or boots a good wipe on the mat and the uncrushable green bristles get into all of the ridges and indentations on the soles of your shoes. I wear my muddy gardening boots straight indoors knowing any mud, dirt or grass has been removed by this superb little mat. It is a little on the expensive side and a choice of colours would be welcome. My mat has been used extensively for over a year and shows no sign of wear.

Very surprised that water collected under the mat. I thought it was designed for outside use, so that drainage was a pre requisite. It is however very attractive. You pays your money and you take your chance!

I bought this mat for my daughter who keeps chickens, she was finding it difficult to not tread the mud and droppings indoors. The mat really works very well. Excellent. Pat Northants.
