Garden edging systems are a great way to visually separate your flower and lawn beds, create borders around trees, or help to improve drainage for healthy plants. They also help to prevent the growth of weeds, which can lead to messy looking gardens and poor soil health.
What is bed edging?
The most common materials used for landscape edging are plastic, metal, and hardwood. These options come in a variety of colors and styles to suit any garden. We used the 2.5 gauge steel and were content with the outcome.
Steel is a popular option for its durability, but you can also find aluminum edging. Both options are available at home improvement stores and online.
Stone is another versatile choice for garden edging. It’s strong enough to hold up to heavy traffic and won’t rot or splinter in extreme weather conditions, so it can last for years without much maintenance.
Brick edging provides a sophisticated look to a flower bed or lawn border, and comes in a range of sizes, shapes and colors. You can also mix and match different brick sizes to create a unique pattern that will add an extra dimension of interest.
This edging is very easy to install. It’s not difficult to dig a small trench and then connect the pieces together, although it may take some time. It’s more expensive than bender board and plastic edging, but it’s worth the effort for its durability and long-term appearance. It’s also very easy to maintain, so it’s a good investment.
