Build This Brick Pathway A Step By Step Tutorial

This is a basic landscaping plan, but it makes good use of brick pavers and stone in the garden. The bricks are being used to create a focal point rather than as a pathway. Often, distinct aesthetics may be achieved simply by lifting the plants or establishing different levels. Set things off with some stones!

Make A Small Garden Brick Wall As An Edging Border In Your Landscape Designs

This is a variation on the “fencing” idea above. Stack several courses of bricks to make a mini stone wall fence or raised garden. This makes for a nice contrast. Make sure to overlap the bricks help them support each other.

Highlight the Area Around A Large Flowerpot

By arranging bricks in a circular pattern larger than the pot, you may create a “stage” to emphasise a huge flower pot. Place pebble stones and little flower pots around the bigger one.  Using salvaged bricks is one of the finest methods to get this appearance! Reclaimed bricks are a wonderful choice for making outside patios since they provide a sense of class, elegance, and a rustic atmosphere!
