Tile in the Garden

May 18, 2011 at 1:06 pm Leave a comment

It’s that wonderful time of year. This Spring in Central California feels ripe.  The amount of rain we’ve had recently has left usually dry hillsides lush, and our own backyards are beckoning for revival!

Bulbs and new blossoms aren’t the only thing that can make your backyard sing though…  A little tile can perk up a garden like nothing else.

This pond is one of our all time favorite tile jobs. Ever.  It’s in an absolutely stunning backyard in Oakland, CA using our modern 3/4″ mosaic tile, modwalls® Brio® blend Gardner (the name is so very appropriate, right?)  This customer had a vision and totally went for it.  A scaled back version would look incredible as well; a simple mosaic tile water feature adds SO MUCH to any backyard garden.

And we’re not the only ones who are all for tile in the garden. We found this awesome mosaic tile wall photo on “Lost in the Landscape” blog. Love it!

A walkway or planter box inlaid with mosaic tile is another cool option.  Check out this photo from our friends at Fireclay Tile. What an awesome artistic creation!  You could create your own version with left over scrap tile or with loose tile like modwalls® Brio® Bulk Loose Seconds tile.

So have at it. Get crafty and creative with tile in your garden.
