Beautiful Glazed Bricks


When I saw these beautiful facing bricks from Fire Clay Tile, my mind started churning….how many ways can I think of to use them? Perhaps I could cover an ugly concrete foundation? Or maybe I could make a container planter and face it with them? Or maybe I can somehow work them into the edging of a ground level deck? (hmmm)

It is surprising how normally I am fairly ambivalent about bricks…they are just part of the palette….but add some cool colors and suddenly I am all inspired to find new ways to work them into a design.  How about you, how would you use colored bricks?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I was just ogling those the other day. I love the idea of cladding a site wall or planter in them, but I am leary of installing these near the ground in a cold climate. It says in their literature that they can make them for cold climates, but in my detailing of building over the years I’ve avoided installing brick at grade.

    I also think they would make an awesome kitchen backsplash.
