GardenWise on Recycling & “Green” Garden Design
There are so many advantages to using recycled materials when creating a stone/hardscape garden project. For the environment and your wallet! We use recycled materials, such as concrete for paving systems, recycled glass in stepping stones, and crushed recycled stone and granite for patio surfaces whenever possible. It’s a great “green” step to take while creating your special garden space.
An added benefit to using recycled materials? The savings on the installation of a landscape design. If I can incorporate larger pieces of old concrete into a design, the purchase and delivery of new materials is eliminated. Also eliminated? The cost of removing and disposing of old materials.
If you think that you can’t afford to install your next hardscape project, ask about incorporating recycled materials into your design. The savings may just be enough for you to go ahead and create the garden space you desire. Just in time for spring and summer.
