(map) We have gotten a lot of questions about this place, so we’re re-running the story. Garden-Ville sells all kinds of organic soils, compost and mulch, but the most striking is this Glass Rock. Folks find all kinds of creative ways to use this sparkly stuff at home, such as pathways, a zen garden, or even lining the bottom of koi ponds. Garden-Ville takes the entire city of Austin’s recycled glass, then tumbles it smooth so it’s safe to handle.
This stuff inspired the Annie Lennox song, “Walking on Broken Glass.” Kidding.
You can get a cubic yard (about the size of a pickup bed) of it for $24.99, or a 40-lb bag for just $3.99. Don’t want to get your hands dirty? They also deliver.
