Recycled Garden Borders

Reused, recycled and reclaimed materials make great borders in the garden. The key to making these materials work is consistency – use materials that are of a similar size, material, color or shape. It also helps to space the materials at regular intervals using a consistent pattern. If the materials are inconsistent or irregulaly installed, the border can look junky and messy.

In the Reclaimed Garden, I had used bricks and concrete test cylinders for borders. These borders were super simple, each brick or cylinder was laid end to end and partially buried.

Here are some other border ideas
