Brick cleaning was a nasty business!

January

Imagine dealing with a chemical so potent you need full hazmat gear akin to something the Centres for Disease Control might use in an ebola outbreak. Imagine that chemical washing off the brickwork into the soil in your yard, and perhaps even into the local environment. ... Read More

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
23

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

Keeping it real with fake grass

August
23

In the early 2000’s, Melbourne went through a terrible drought – the dams were down to 30% capacity, winters were mild and dry, and summers hot and dry. It seemed like we’d never see a return to the Melbourne of old – and climate change would forever change the rainfall patterns. ... Read More

The early Egyptians were the architects of some of the first retaining walls, when they were trying to stop flooding and soil erosion in their fields along the banks of the Nile river. Of course, a retaining wall is defined as any wall of any material that is used to stop the movement of soil in areas where a change in ground elevation is needed. ... Read More

In fact, a site in Darling Harbour is thought to be the first site of a brick making facility in our city by the harbour. Bricks made by convicts will often have a special mark on them, like an arrow or a diamond. ... Read More

A brief history of Pavers

August
23

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. ...
