Landscape materials
Landscaping offers a huge range of opportunities to use recycled materials -bricks, pavings, railway sleepers and many other materials can be creatively reused. Visit our page on architectural salvage to find local suppliers of secondhand building materials.
 
Other possibilities are presented by the use of natural and renewable materials -walls of rammed earth, stone gabions or using car tyres for exmple.
 
The things to avoid are materials that have a high embodied energy -for example if they have been transported halfway round the world -landscaping materials tend to be bulky and heavy and the implications of long distance transport are more significant.
