We have had ours for 6 years and I love it. We are in new England
and it stands up to all that Mother Nature can throw at it. I especially like it in the
summer when we can go barefoot without ever thinking about a splinter. My kids are always on it
with no concern about leaching arcenic either. Oh and did
I mention "Zero maintenance", I wash it in the spring and enjoy it the rest of the year.
