Incorporating Glass into your Modern Garden

If you cannot commission Dale Chihuly to hand blow a glass sculpture for your garden (raising hand), here are a few other ideas of incorporating glass into your modern garden.

1.  Top dress your planting beds with tumbled glass.

2.  Purchase a fun piece of stained glass from your local glass 
     artisan or from Etsy.

4.  Frost it.
     Upcycle a piece of glass and frost it with your favorite modern    
     design to use as a privacy screen or accent. Click here to see how we did

5.  Fill a gabion wall with it.

6.  Substitute water for it.


7.  Create outdoor lighting.


8.  Put it in the fire.


9.  Feed the birds with it.

10.  Drink out of it.  
       If all else fails,  just grab a glass and fill it with your favorite 
       garden cocktail!  Enjoy your garden 'as is' with friends.
