Transforming your garden doesn’t have to be difficult, expensive or harmful to the planet! Making use of recycled products (such as recycled aggregates) is a simple and cost-effective way to revamp your outdoor space – and there are lots of creative ways to do so. Get involved by using recycled aggregates to do the following:
Build a wildlife-friendly pond border
If you have a pond in your garden, the chances are that you’re hoping to attract more wildlife to your home – and using recycled aggregates to build a wildlife-friendly pond border is a great way to do so. Aggregates can be used to create a rustic and wildlife-friendly pond border that doesn’t look too uniform. They look and feel more natural than polished stone (after all, they’re more like pebbles from beaches or river beds) which small creatures will love when drinking from or bathing in your pond.
Lay a low-maintenance garden path
Laying a garden path has many great benefits. Not only does it make your garden more accessible (especially during periods of high rainfall where your lawn may oversaturate), but it can also make outdoor areas look more spacious by separating large patches of lawn. Recycled aggregates make wonderful garden paths, especially if you’re on a budget and want to achieve a more rustic look. They’re also perfect for low maintenance garden paths; unlike paving stones, they won’t break or split and can be replaced easily.
Design an alpine rockery
Alpine rockeries are full of charm and personality and are another great way to make use of recycled aggregates. Designing a rockery for your garden doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive and you’ll be pleased to know that they’re low maintenance, too. If you’d like to enhance your garden with a unique, non-traditional landscaping feature, a rockery could be the way to go! To create one, all you need to do is choose the rocks you’d like to use (you can mix a selection of decorative paving slabs, old bricks and recycled aggregates) and your favourite alpine plants.
