It looks good in the right conditions, and I would venture to say that out of all the landscapes done in the nation, only 1% of them done might have the right situation for glass.

The problem with it is that it's too small and light and will move around real easily, making it harder to maintain.

That's going to run into some serious money.

$350 for one yard and shipping is extra. I can see this at Hotels or casino's. My friend is buying it and I am going to take pics to see how it looks and maybe try it at my Million dollar homes. I am worried when it comes to it getting discolored. I was thinking just use a power washer with a mixture of windex. You can also make money maintaining the appearance of the glass mulch every so often.

I would not use it in a spot that floods or near tree's.

I think it would work out great for some small jobs around the house, like fire pits. But honestly, for most landscapes, it just wouldn't look right. The colors are too vivid for the majority of landscapes. But places like amusement parks would really look good with this product.

But you also have to take into consideration the price of this stuff. Even though you won't have to replace it ever, how long will it take to pay for itself over buying regular mulch/wood chips?

Cool, I used rubber mulch for a landscape job once. I have seen mulch made from coffee beans a while back to.

How sharp are the edges could be a liability issue? Plus puts out a lot of heat could burn someone walking barefoot.

I'm not disagreeing, it does look pretty.
