Brick is one of the most commonly used building materials in the construction business. While it is known for its strength and durability as an exterior wall of a house or building, it has several other practical uses. Many homeowners find creative ways to install brick in their garden.
- Brick Edging & Garden Markers
Brick is a great way to build a stunning garden space for your favourite flowers or vegetables. For a simple, low-profile design, lay bricks to serve as edging. A second layer can be placed in the ground to create clean lines while adding more colour to your lawn. Paint or write on individual bricks and place around the garden to serve as markers that label each herb, veggie or plant.
- Brick Pathways & Walls
A pathway or decorative wall can really add curb appeal to a house. Some feature solid paths covered in bricks while others may incorporate open space or loose stone. This can also help reduce mud in your yard while giving guests a place to walk.
- Raised Beds for Plants
Raised beds add depth to your garden décor while providing better drainage. Build connected walls then fill with soil and add your favourite plants. Raised beds can also be built into hillsides to create a stepped look that’s cleaner and requires no mowing.
- Brick Patios & Firepits
Many builders have done amazing things with brick patios. Create unique patterns or build a simple platform for family gatherings or general outdoor recreation. You can even work in other features like a firepit or brick oven.
- Brick Water Features
Bricks are a great choice when constructing water features. They are long-lasting and look gorgeous next to flowing water and aquatic plants or fish. Water features also add an element of luxury that can make a property more appealing to some buyers.
