Are you a homeowner looking for a fun way to spruce up your outdoor space? Buying bricks for a DIY project is easy, and the results are elegant and timeless.
There are plenty of creative landscape projects that you can build with bricks. Here are five ideas to get you started.
Create a beautiful brick pathway winding through your garden. This is a great way to add color and interest to your outdoor space. The color of the brick is a beautiful contrast to a grassy area or a green garden.
You can paint the bricks different colors to add even more interest. Add a fun design in front of a sitting area or another focal point to get more creative. Try different things to see what you like.
A Spiral Garden
A spiral garden is a simple project that has a great end result. Simply arrange your bricks in a loose spiral pattern. The height of the spiral should increase from the outside to the inside. In other words, the inner part of the spiral will be higher than the outer part.
Then fill it in with topsoil and plant some herbs or flowering plants. Choose plants that will contrast with the color of the brick.
Waterfalls are great additions to a backyard oasis. The sound of water running on a hot day creates such a pleasant and relaxing ambiance.
Building a brick waterfall is as easy as finding a nice corner where the waterfall will fit. Once you’ve piled your brick how you want it, line the inside with rubber. Add a pump (hidden behind bricks, of course) and your waterfall is ready to go!

A brick birdbath is another simple project with a big impact. This is a great idea for those who love the sound of birds chirping. And it is as simple as stacking the bricks the height and width that you want your stand. Then add a bowl of water on top.
You can even hang a bird feeder nearby. Soon you’ll have colorful feathered friends flitting about!
A Fire Pit
A fire pit can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. At it’s most simple, you can build a ring with space for a fire inside.
If you’re into barbecuing and backyard entertaining, a fireplace grill is a great idea. This project is a bit more complicated, though, so you may need some help. It depends on your level of comfort working with bricks.
If you want to do it yourself, you can find tutorials and DIY guides online.
