A Penticton landscaper found a way to add a new dimension to landscape aesthetics.

Brandon Messier of Messiers Concrete and Landscaping describes himself as “a landscaper who has seen a lot of high-end buildings with low-end landscapes”.

“I kept seeing the same materials and wanted to bring in something that was different and more versatile,” he says.

He started looking for a new product last year and just recently took delivery of £ 60,000 worth of glass landscape blocks and boulders.

The unique pieces are made from recycled glass in a variety of colors and range in size from approximately two inches to three feet by three feet. The heaviest piece Messier has bought weighs 1,600 pounds.

The glass blocks can be backlit, backlit, or without lighting. The clearer pieces reflect light and glow on their own. The pieces are designed to add additional color and interest to landscapes.

“The boulders are ideal as rocks in a landscape, and the smaller ones are versatile. They aren’t the cheapest things out there, however, at around $ 5 a pound. The larger the quantity, the lower the price, ”says Messier.

Messier Concrete and Landscaping is the largest glass block owner in North America. Messier says he ships to the US and Canada, from Texas to the lower mainland. He’s buying from an offshore source.

“I don’t know of anyone who sells larger pieces than the ones I have. I do a lot of business in landscapes and find that customers often want something different, something that catches people’s attention. That does it. There are many ways that can be done, ”says Messier.

Anyone interested in taking a closer look at the glass blocks can see a large one outside Sandstone Landscaping Supplies on Government Street 1945. Messier also has a display outside his home at 28 Huth Avenue in Penticton. The product can also be seen on the company’s website at messiersconcrete.com.
