Default Better than a bottle tree?

I got some "GrassyPavers" Tm to widen my driveway.
It's a plastic grid that protects the grass so you can drive on it.

The cool part is that the holes are almost the right size for beer bottles.
I can use about 42 out of 64 holes at the same time.

I'll probably cut them down to hold 30 or so, and use 2 for each brew session.

They're HDPE, so they can go in the dishwasher.
(Try that with plywood or cardboard.)

Great idea... Are they available at HD or Lowes?

As far as I know, they're only available from
http://www.grassypavers.com
I checked Lowes, Home Depot, Ace, and my local building/landscaping supply.

I don't know how they'll react to a bunch of orders of 2 each.
If there's a lot of interest, maybe a homebrewer in Mississippi could get a
full pallet and break it up.

The hexagons are 2.125 inches.
2.5 inches would be better, and I'm sure someone in the world makes a honeycomb that size, but I have no idea how to find them.
