A brief history of gardens in Melbourne

August
23

In this article, we want to share the history of three famous gardens in Melbourne. Whilst we all like to potter around and put in a few herbs, vegetables or favourite trees and shrubs into our gardens, there are some people in history who have taken this passion to extremes. ... Read More

A brief history of lawns

August

You’d never know it, but the humble lawn so many of us take for granted in our yards, started life as a symbol of wealth and power in medieval times. Before lawn mowers, installing and maintaining a patch of lawn was actually quite difficult and required a lot of hard back breaking work with scythes. It required money, and servants. ... Read More

August

Melbourne Brick stocks a wide range of pavers and we’ve been doing so for 30 years in 2018. We have a passion for pavers of all types from clay to limestone, concrete to bluestone, and even the recently popular porcelain paving. However, our brief connection with pavers pales against the earliest use of paving by the Romans. In fact, did you know that at the height of the Roman Empire there were close to half a million kilometres of roads, of which they had paved a massive 80,000 odd thousand kilometres or so. ...

What did we do before the mower?

July
