Landscaping Brick: All About Class and Elegance

Aug 17, 2007
If you are planning to give your house and its surroundings that classic touch and feel then landscape bricks is a perfect way to go about it. Being used since ages you will have loads of options in choosing landscaping brick. They come in all colors and sizes so that not only you get the variety but all your needs are met.

In fact, what experts suggest is that if you are having trouble in how to go about the landscaping design, then bricks are always the right option. They are always there to bail you out of troubles. If you have a small porch or lawn in front of your house, a little bit of landscape bricks can completely alter the look of the place and help your house stand out of the rest in the neighborhood.

Of course bricks are there to add beauty to the landscape design. But importantly they are durable too and so will last much longer than other materials. Moreover they are low on maintenance and can go with almost any house, whatever the look may be.

You can have a patio made from bricks and gives the driveway a lovely classical look that any other material would find hard to replicate. And all you need for it are bricks and mortar, and a little bit of your time. The layout of the bricks can be in two modes. You may either have them laid horizontally in rows one after the other. Or if you want to go a bit creative you can try the basket weave where you alternate horizontal and vertical bricks.

If you are doing up the look of your garden then also bricks can be a great help. In fact, bricks have been used for a long time in designing the layouts of gardens. Bricks can be used to border the flower garden, if you have one. The bricks will not only mark out a separate area for the flowering plants, but will also help to retain the water in the flowerbed. Similarly if you have a water garden bricks can be used to encase the area around the pool. Not only will it add to the look of the pool but will also improve its stability.

You can also use crushed brick to do up the sidewalks and pathways outside your house. But they do tend to sink into the ground. So if you don't want the brick particle to get lost beneath the soil, then you must use landscape fabric below the crushed brick.
