Brick Chips Description
Brick Chips as decorative aggregate stone
Forest Commodities can provide you with brick chips for your landscaping ground cover. These will hold moisture for your plants and will not rot, fade, or deteriorate. As an added bonus, they don’t attract insects.
Recycled bricks, not machine-made
Our brick chips are made from crushed recycled brick, deep red in color, with irregular shapes of medium to large size, averaging about 3/4”.
Our brick chips are not machine-made. They are manufactured from leftover or broken bricks, and in that sense, they are a first run product. Because they come from handmade bricks, they will also absorb and retain moisture better than machine-made brick chips. Brick chips are great for decorative, low-maintenance landscaping.
* What is a cubic yard?
A cubic yard measures 3 ft. x 3 ft. x 3 ft. A cubic yard of mulch will cover a 10 ft. x 10 ft. area, 3 in. deep. (3 in. is the recommended depth for spreading mulch.) So a good rule of thumb is to calculate the square footage of the area to be covered with mulch and divide by 100. For example, imagine you have a front porch with a flower bed on each side. Each side measures 15 ft. x 10 ft. (150 sq. ft.). The total area to be covered is 150 + 150 = 300 sq. ft. To calculate the number of yards of mulch required, divide that by 100. So you need 3 yards of mulch.
