Quick-Connect Patio. EcoShield Deck Tile is a wood-plastic composite that’s made with 95 percent recycled content and never needs staining or painting, says the maker. Its grid backing lets you lock adjoining tiles together to create a floating floor. It can be installed on rooftops and over concrete or gravel. The 12-inch-by-12-inch tiles come in one brick and three wood-grain patterns and cost about $8 per square foot; matching border trim is also available.
