For a while now I’ve wanted to add a border to our beds but didn’t want to spend a lot of money. To be honest I didn’t want to spend anything. As a rule I try to use things I have on the property but nothing felt quite right.
Then I remembered. An old building was being torn down in town. Boy did I luck out. Yep, I was able to salvage some of the brick. A little time spent knocking off the old mortar and they were good as new.
Doesn’t it look great. What a wonderful way to repurpose brick. At least some of the old building was saved from the landfill. It now has a new purpose, and life in the garden.
“The purpose – where I start – is the idea of use. It is not recycling, it’s reuse.”
