Rubber Mats Hold Down Dust
"We had a dusty area around our barn. Nothing would grow there and I didn't want to pour concrete," says Jim Cole, Ottawa, Kansas. "I got the idea of covering the ground with some old 4 by 6-ft. rubber stall mats that I wasn't using. I laid them with the ribbed side down and hold them in place with large 4 by 7-in. "staples" made from old electric fenceposts. I drilled holes slightly smaller than the staples through the mats and then drove them into the ground. After three years, they're still holding tight. We drive tractors on them with no shifting at all."
