Various Uses For Concrete In Your Garden
Create visually striking features for your garden using concrete as a base material. The simple, clean aesthetic of sealed concrete is fast becoming a design classic. You too can benefit from the versatile range of garden features that can be made using high strength concrete. For unique finishes, there are stains and various buffing tools available to make your concrete garden feature totally unique.
Like all the features in this list, steps can be made using melamine moulds. They can be done DIY, but professional landscapers who offer concreting services should be used for professional results. The clean lines of concrete steps work perfectly as a contrast to rustic railway sleeper flower beds, and add a certain chic to any garden.
A secluded and tranquil spot in the garden can be enhanced with a smooth, white concrete bench. The soft look of concrete benches and their apparent strength has given pause for thought in many zen gardens over the years. You too can enjoy the aesthetic and the tactile nature of concrete in your garden by using concrete casting techniques to create a geometric concrete bench.
While benches are great as stand-alone items, a concrete table is best complemented with wooden folding chairs. Once again, the blend of natural and man made will bring a balanced feel to your garden.
With the right treatments, concrete planters are versatile, if hard to move. You’ll want to put them somewhere where they will become a permanent fixture of the garden. Once in situ, the stripped back look of the concrete will go well with evergreens or desert plants such as cacti. Although, whatever plants you choose will be perfectly happy in concrete planters.
Patios are a relatively simple feature to make and can be supplied by your concrete provider. Once sealed and polished, you can expect years of trouble-free service from your patio. Simply, give it a clean on sunny days and make sure to keep plant life at bay.
Concrete Privacy Screens
If you want to screen a quiet corner of your garden from the lawn, driveway or patio, a privacy screen can be made using stacked concrete blocks. Mix up the look by incorporating holes in the screen, so that it adds visual intrigue to the garden.
