Natural-Mountain Grass Rugs

Updated on January 12, 2011

Natural area rugs come from various places around the globe, and mountain grass rugs are probably the least known out of this category of floor coverings. The majority of mountain grass products come from several provinces within China, but there are small pockets of agribusiness in the United States that harvest this natural resource to make textile fiber. Just like seagrass rugs, this version is made into a thread that can produce various consumer and commercial products, but one of the most popular retail products made are mountain grass area rugs. This product can be used inside the home as well as the exterior.

The will turn into mulch for your rose over vegetable garden just as easily as wood bark will, and they will not have to live forever in the city dump like other manmade products will for thousands of years.

One of the best outdoor areas to use natural large area rugs made of mountain grass will the outdoor kitchen and living room that you have set up to entertain family and friends with during the warmer months. Cleaning natural fibers are very easy as they repel water completely. Just your old green water hose, and a stiff brush or broom will have them looking like new in just a few moments. One word of advice is to not buy mountain grass rugs that have a rubber backing or rug pad built in the product. This will let water sit for a extended period of time, and will promote mold and mildew, thus speeding of the compost process prematurely.
