How Concrete Blocks Can Clean up Your Yard

Slide 2:

If your yard is a little cluttered and you’re trying to figure out some ways to clean it up, you might want to consider concrete blocks. Aside from the idea that they’ll clean up the yard, they are often one of the most cost effective options you’ll have. They are also typically easy to get your hands on and not too heavy to lift on your own, making them easy to install. The following are some ways you can use concrete blocks to clean up your yard. One of the first things you can do is section off your garden areas. Whether you have a large vegetable garden or a smaller flower garden, using concrete blocks will give them a distinct boundary. If you want to try your hand at square foot gardening, the blocks are perfect for building up the area to add your top soil to. No matter the type of garden, they will create a clear line between the yard and your greenery.

Slide 3:

If you have a fire pit in your yard, concrete blocks make the perfect surround. Whether you raise the pit above ground or have dug down into your yard, you can purchase fire resistant blocks so everyone can clearly see where the fire pit starts and ends. This is also a safety feature for individuals with young children. In addition to the fire pit itself, you can use the blocks to make a holder for the firewood. Instead of having it stacked (or falling over) in the corner of the yard, you can make a box with them to throw the wood into. Concrete blocks make great stairs. Anywhere that the yard is sloped, it could be easier for people to get up and down if they have actual stairs to step on. With a little excavating and digging, you can create level surfaces to place the blocks on. If they have holes in them, small rocks or wood chips make great fillers.

Slide 4:

With concrete blocks and some long pieces of wood, you can build shelving units for the yard. On those shelves, you can store toys for the sandbox, gardening tools, fertilizers, roller skates and pretty much anything else that might be lying around the yard. This is very helpful in keeping a tidy yard. As you can see, there are some smart ways to clean up your yard using concrete blocks.
