Green bot­tles on the edge

Landscape (UK) - - In The Garden -

Empty glass bot­tles can be put to a good sec­ond use as edg­ing for gar­den path­ways. A trench slightly wider than a bot­tle is dug along the perime­ter of the beds to be en­closed. Clean bot­tles are sunk neck-first into the earth, to ap­prox­i­mately two-thirds of their height. Back­fill­ing the spa­ces around the bot­tles en­sures they are firmly held in place. Glass bot­tles are not used to edge veg­etable beds. Bot­tle edg­ing is never stepped upon, and care is taken when us­ing tools nearby.
