3 Ways to Incorporate Concrete into Your Landscaping

There’s nothing quite like an outdoor living space to help you relax, whether it’s with family and friends or a sanctuary of solitude. Adding precast concrete elements can create an incredible atmosphere that you will treasure for decades. So, where do you start? Here are a few tips from our experts at Unit Step.

Precast Concrete Landscape Elements

1. Concrete Bird Baths

Adding a bird bath to your landscaping is a great way to add life to your yard. You can attract other species of birds that won’t regularly visit a bird feeder, but will come for a steady source of water. Birds aren’t just pretty to look at, they are great for the garden, feasting on pests and aerating the soil. And some, like finches and sparrows, even help keep weeds down as they eat the seeds.

2. Concrete Benches or Tables

A home or business can have gorgeous landscaping but, without a place to comfortably lounge, it’s left underappreciated. Adding a concrete bench or table provides the perfect space for you to enjoy your coffee, read a book, chat among close friends, or simply relax away from all of the indoor distractions. At Unit Step, our table and bench combos boast clean lines with or without decorative scroll work, so you can individualize them to your taste.

3. Concrete Planters

Concrete planters are long-lasting and environmentally friendly investments. Concrete is heavy and able to withstand elements such as wind or rain. You won’t have to worry about your plants being ruined or becoming uprooted from getting knocked over. Also, the density of concrete promotes insulation and thus will keep the soil surrounding your plants warm during cold weather. Finally, the thick walls create a barrier to prevent water leakage from planters, which would cause damage to your home, patio, or planter itself.
