Ideas for creating tiles in the garden
Trunks and branches. The first easy way to create floor tiles, is using logs and thick branches. When we find, we buy or get a thick trunk, will cut neat slices about 4 to 6 inches thick, and neutral rub cooking oil and a brush every other day, for a period of one week allowing them to dry slightly. Then we just have to dig a little ground in the areas where we want to showcase these natural tiles, place the slices inside, and prolijar with land around it, so that they are firm and subject.

Building Materials. Another way is to reuse building materials such as bricks, pavers and tiles resting or material. Their placement is very simple: like as we learned to do with the tiles of logs, to place tiles building materials hollow out the ground and will place these elements, fixing them with land around it.

  

To create our own material tiles, we use a framework (We can do as with wooden slats) and masking tape (commonly known as the “contact paper”, preferably transparent to avoid dye transfer). Place the adhesive paper up and adhere to it and wooden frame. It currently can locate venecitas , Snails, or objects you want, always placing the face down, so that it adheres to the paper. Then mix cement, sand and water (one part cement, two sand and water required to form a paste), and we pour over the frame, flattening it. When thoroughly dry, baldosón removed the frame and removed the sticker paper. In this way, we have achieved a fully customized decorative baldosón to decorate the garden.
