How can I use leftover bricks?

My daughter had her chimney demolished and now there's a pile of brick pieces left over. What can we use these for?

    I use whole bricks for edging. But you can also use them to make a pathway or to keep muddy areas from getting more dirt washed away. Depending on the kind of brick (not concrete) you can also use them in garden pots to help with drainage.

  • That's a huge pile of bricks! Need any pathways? Garden border edging? Build a small patio?

    You can always sell on Craig's List Nextdoor.com or other sites.

    I love those bricks use them for pathways as Jen said above or make beautiful edges with them. I used them for edges in my last house and it was very complimentary.

    Hope it helps! Bushra

    If they are pieces, they would look nice with the broken side in the ground. You could mix them in with bricks that are in one piece.
