Here a Brick, There a Brick: Recycling Bricks
Green Hardscape Design and Install is GardenWise
Each brick used in the above GardenWise, Inc. designed and installed garden space in Washington, D.C., was recycled from the previous garden space. Landscape Architects are paying closer attention to “green” projects more and more. Using recycled materials is one way GardenWise helps our clients take a great “green” step when installing a stone or brick design. We use recycled materials whenever the chance to do so presents itself, 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.
An added bonus? You save money! When I incorporate larger pieces of old concrete or bricks into a design, the purchase and delivery costs of new materials is eliminated.
