Not only are these blocks inexpensive, they can be utilized in a large variety of ways, whether you are planning a modest garden or one big enough to hold all of your family and friends for the kind of summer gatherings you have always dreamed of. If you have limited space for your new garden, then cinderblocks are an effective way to fit in a variety of plants without sacrificing cubic inches.

For example, if your garden is flush with the back wall of your home or garage, you can use cinderblocks and caps and interlock them in a way that creates a raised flowerbed with a rectangular space for larger plants and neat squares that protrude in order to house herbs and smaller plants. Singular blocks can be painted to create attractive planters that enhance any border within your garden.   Creating cinderblock steps are a fun and creative way to make certain areas of your garden easier to access. To add these whimsical-looking steps, you will need to add or remove the soil as needed until you have the proper grade. Then, lay the blocks down side by side with the longer sides flush against each other until you’ve created three or four separate steps. Finally, fill the gaps in the cinderblocks with colored gravel to complete the effect. These cinderblock steps are easy to create and will be a hit with anyone who visits your garden.
