GardenWise on Recycling Bricks in Green Garden Designs

Beautiful Green Hardscape Designs    

Using recycled materials in your hardscape featrures is a great “green” step to take when installing any stone or brick  design.  We use  recycled materials when the chance to do so is available,  and the possibilities are endless — recycled concrete for paving systems,  glass in stepping stones, recycled bricks, and crushed stone and granite to be used in  patio surfaces.  Each brick used in this  Washington, DC  garden we designed and installed (above left,) was recycled from a previous hardscape feature.       

An added bonus?  You save money! When I incorporate  larger pieces of old concrete or bricks into a  design,  the purchase and delivery of new materials is eliminated.  Also eliminated?  The material removal and disposal costs.   It’s yet another way to take a Green Living step that also helps your budget.
