This is the information I was looking for, also. How hot do these surfaces get in 100+ degree heat? I can wear flip flops or sandals, but if these surfaces are going to be too hot for my pets to walk on, then I don't want them. Can someone on Houzz please address this question: Which surface stays relatively cool on bare feet??

One of best articles I have read on Houzz! So many choices and the benefits of each was very helpful.

Until artificial turff is made compostable or recyclable it is not an otion I would ever consider. I have yet to see an artificial turf that maintains its good looks long enough to warrent its 500 years in a landfill when it is time to replace it. I understand other outdoor floorings are also not compostable, but most non-composite decking and pavers aren't ready to be replaced in less than a decade. And more and more of our options are reusable (natural stone, pavers) or recyclable (cement products).
