Cinder blocks have always been confused with concrete blocks. They are often used the way concrete blocks are used and that is the reason why cinder block outdoor ideas have become a trend over the years. Unlike concrete, cinder blocks are cheaper and smoother.
Although they are not as waterproof resistant as concrete over the years, they offer a classic touch to many outdoor ideas.
Cinder block outdoor ideas include building a cinder block fire pit, outdoor cellar shelves, cinder block benches for the garden or around the firepit, cinder block stepping stones or outdoor stairs leading to the patio or backyard, and cinder block planters (but only for non-edible plants).
Cinder blocks are easy to use and they can be done DIY and that is what makes cinder blocks a go-to material for outdoor ideas. They are also good accents to combine with other materials especially wood so you can count on them for customized designs.
