Recycled Glass Adds Pizazz to Landscapes

Share this on:

Pictured here, tumbled, recycled glass creates a striking and unique landscape with a “river” that winds through the yard.  Imagine its use in fountains, firepits, fish ponds, pathways, mulch beds, and gardens. How beautiful it would be in desert-scapes to bring in color without the use of thirsty plants!  From post-consumer bottles to post-industrial window scraps, recycled glass is available in a wide array of colors and sizes for all sorts of applications.

Since glass takes about 1000 years to decompose, recycling is the perfect solution.  It’s ideal in the landscape too since it doesn’t need replacing year after year.  Plus, it’s a deterrent to garden pests, such as slugs, since they don’t like to crawl on it!

So, where does one purchase it?
