Everybody recycles newspaper and thin cans, glass and it is a good thing to recycle, but have you ever thought about recycling building materials and in particular how about cobble stones that were install well over a hundred years on some of the streets here in greater Cincinnati.
These particular granite cobble stones that I am going to use were made million of years ago under the ground when volcanic rock formed, it is extremely durable. They were hand cut years ago and they could withstand any type of weather that Mother Nature throws at it. They will never fall apart. They are excellent for all types of projects around your yard.
One of the great uses for these granite cobble stones are just a simple edging around a planning bit and you want to go ahead and just stock them around the soils so that you see the natural beauty of the sides of the stone.
The granite cobble stone also makes a wonderful edging for a driveway when you excavate, sometimes you dig a little deep, it is not really a problem. Just take some of the material you took out. Put them back in, pat it down with your hand and then simply put the stones back in place till it matches the height of the one you put in just before.
Remember, recycling is a really good idea and I prefer to recycle Mother Nature’s building material.
