Edging a Garden
Garden edging can be used in any garden design to make it look more defined, functional and tidier. There are so many options when it comes to garden edging that you will be sure to find something that suits your garden. Garden edging can be as simple or complicated as you wish and it’s not too difficult to get great looking results with a little effort. As prices range from cheap to very expensive you will want to budget and measure out your area prior to choosing a product or material. There are many companies that sell their own patented garden edging but if money is tight you may wish to use recycled woods, stones, bricks, plastics or metals to achieve a unique garden edging.
Garden Edging for Lawns
Garden edging can be used to isolate areas such as flower beds, lawns, hedges, rockeries, patios and pathways. Our picture below shows how the simple border of slate chippings can define a stone wall from a patio, whilst keeping weeds down, providing drainage for excess water and adding colour. If you have a raised lawn or flower bed, garden edging can help hold everything in place, as well as make maintenance quicker and easier. Wood, stone or plastic can also be raised inches to create a step from one area to another. Another use of edging can be to prevent stones or vegetation getting on to paths and turf, so mowing isn’t hazardous and sweeping can be reduced.
Which Garden Edging material?
The materials used for garden edging have developed over past years so you have the choice of using timber, plastics, stones, pebbles, concrete, brick or bark chippings to add detail and separate areas. Unless you are looking for a brick border, installation of garden edging is not too complicated either so it is not always necessary to pay for a company to install it for you. However, you may want to consider using professional help for any brick laying if you do not possess the skills yourself. Packs of garden edging can be purchased with instructions that allow you to manipulate curves and patterns to meet your desired layout.
Garden Landscape Edging
Edging can vary in size, shape, height and colour as well as material. If you have a certain décor to your garden which you want to extend, then plastic edging is available in a number of colours and textures. Likewise, timbers can be treated and painted to match other accessories or furniture you may have nearby. There are straight borders you can buy as well as more agile edging that can be bent and curved to fit undulating and curvy designs. The cheaper option may not always be the best long term solutions, as some of the more expensive edging products may be stronger, durable and all-weather resistant. If you therefore only have a small space to design, it may be worth paying more for peace of mind.
Garden Edging Ideas
Garden edging makes the whole space look more professional and well-kept. It could therefore enhance your yard or garden and add appeal and value to your property. Once installed, garden edging should require very little to no maintenance (if installed properly). Stakes are usually used with the kits to ensure that the edging is stable and doesn’t move and fasteners or brackets hold everything together tightly. Garden edging can be used to provide water run-off, water retention, elevations and to enhance a design. Transform your yard with new edging!
