strangely appealing: glass landscaping materials

Forget the black satin mulch — how do you feel about cobalt blue, man-made “sea glass”? I confess that stumbling across the Garden of Glass website gave me pause, but now I can’t stop thinking about how I can incorporate tiny, sanded glimmers of colorful glass (or big hunks of it) into our yard. And the glass fire pits are stunning. What do you think? –Mary T.

I actually have the black glass in our fireplace. Much more ecofriendly than wood and very pretty. People rave about it constantly.


i love the jade sea glass on the web site


I’ve always wanted to inset some in resin for the garden path.
