20 Accessible Cinder Block Garden Uses
Increasingly concerned about the environment, we recycle everything that falls in our hand. Any construction process, regardless of its size, leaves behind construction materials. We saw how to reuse wood, bricks, even bottles, giving birth to new useful structures in the household. Today we take a close look at a number of cinder block garden uses, those unsightly materials but, as you will see, get a new look thanks to some fine ideas.
The first option, the easiest and most often used in practice is transforming these cinder blocks into planters that, with a little paint or in their original state, are perfectly suited to any free space. They bring more geometric shapes into the landscape and are easy to build and then manage. There are lots of options in terms of design, the cinder blocks allowing an easy construction of different structures.
If it’s a garden then we talk about vegetables, too, not just about flowers. Create small islands like these raised beds in which to grow your favorite vegetables. The image below shows other means available for such raised beds, such as timber or stone.
Garden is also a synonym for profound relaxation. Create your corner of privacy and tranquility wherever you find it fit, using planks and cinder blocks as seen in the images below. It doesn’t involve much engineering and the green space in the back yard also gains a practical side.

A bench in the shade is the favorite destination for anyone in those hot summer days. It’s not simply a bank, but one with organic accents that seamlessly integrates into the whole garden.
A little artistic craftsmanship never hurts, resulting in attractive shapes and colors, which diversify the natural landscape. A few broken plates and saved from the trash can come back to life as a superb mosaic covering a cinder block planter.
On the patio, the cinder block planters can assume a dual role as the counter for storing whatever one needs on a summer day.
