You put glass in your garden?

Isn't it sharp?


BackYard Sapphire makes our glass mulch from the wine, spirits and pickle jars of all our glass contributors!  It is pummeled and sifted to get the desired sized blends that we found work the best.  We mix the colors for our signature blends to create elegant and beautiful accents to any yard or garden. The process that we use to crush rounds/softens the edges and allows for safe handling. 

It is an eye catching topper in flower beds, in rock and rain gardens, or along stone paths.  

Glass mulch is a great way of suffocating weeds and show a better success rate at weed-prevention than traditional wood mulch. Glass mulch cover is perfect for low-water gardens and landscapes. However, glass isn't the perfect solution for gardens with shallow rooted plants or that may get a lot of sun because they can hold more heat than traditional mulch. 

Glass mulch is becoming much more popular in the hotter states where grass is tough to maintain.  Glass and stone cover have been inching their way to becoming a beautiful option for hot southern landscapes.  You can use it around plants, in other decorations, around decorations, in your rock beds, and around your sidewalks.

Using Glass mulch is a unique experience. Unlike traditional mulch, once installed glass doesn’t need to be replaced as often. While the upfront cost will be higher, the long-term savings of the annual purchase of mulch is very significant. 

Mulch helps soil by regulating temperature and moisture. Glass mulch doesn't retain as much moisture as wooden mulch, so there isn't as much potential for fungus to grow. Glass mulch is very suitable for plants that grow best in sandy and rocky soils, but packing it loosely can make it adaptable to any environment or plant. 

You will enjoy walking along the bright colors that landscaping with glass provides.  Glass mulch can be used in a variety of ways so you can easily add color to any part of your garden creations.
