I’ve been waiting for cooler weather to finish a path in my garden with recycled glass mulch free from the city. Then a gardener friend told me that she could get a yard of it for $10 at Eco Depot, scooped with a loader into the back of her truck! It was totally worth that to me to avoid having to go shovel it into buckets and get it to my home. She brought it over and we wheelbarrowed it into my awaiting weed-blocked pathway. My garden now has a little bling that I love.
The mulch is mostly beer bottles that have been crushed and tumbled in sand to smooth the edges. I’ve walked on it in bare feet with no problems, though I probably wouldn’t let small children around it. Mostly clear, green and brown, this close up shows a little blue occasionally as well.
I’ve never been to Eco Depot myself, but my friend tells me it has rocks, flagstones and other hardscaping materials. Located near the city of Bee Cave, I need to take a trip and see it for myself.
I love my new path, but my kitty cutely refuses to walk on it, choosing instead to walk along the bricks that line it.
Update: A new picture of how I modified this path to look even better is posted. I never liked the bricks lining the sides of the path after I put it in, and changed it to have a cleaner edge, as well as added some stepstones.
