You can eliminate the need for garden edge trimming by installing attractive borders as your garden edging. They will prevent grass from invading your beautiful garden. There are many inspiring garden edging ideas you can look up, featuring the varieties in edging options, starting from garden edging stone, paver, to metal. Do you know that installing the edging is a relatively easy project? And the good news is the borders need nearly no maintenance!
Metal garden edging tends to be slightly invisible. Steel edging is the most common choice which can be purchased from larger garden centers or landscape suppliers. The transportation can be rather troublesome, considering how heavy steel edging can be. This option can also rust eventually. On the other hand, consider installing aluminum edging for your garden instead. It is lighter and stiffer, and will not rust. Just like steel, aluminum edging is also available in a wide array of colors. Make sure you have stakes included with your purchase.
Unlike metal garden edging, paver edging provides the wider border that also works the same. You can choose one between brick and concrete pavers, as both of them can make a wonderful and simple garden border for your lovely garden. Even though paver border will keep grass from invading the garden, it does not prevent flowers or other plants to spill over without intruding on the grass. Therefore, you are less likely to chop them up when you are mowing the lawn.
Stacking stone for garden edging offers you a wide variety of attractive natural stone to complement your outdoor space. The final result is a beautiful raised-bed border that can make a visual statement to your garden. It can add texture and depth to your flat and featureless yard, as well as being practical at the same time. You can even reduce the maintenance by adding a 4”-deep trench lined with plastic edging and cramped with mulch to prevent grass roots from creeping into the wall.
When installing stacked stone garden edging, you will require nothing called as “special skill” but a strong back. And you absolutely need the proper tools, such as a good wheelbarrow, a shovel, a cold chisel, and a 2-lb maul. The size of stacking stone for edging will considerably vary by region. Check types by visiting the local landscape supplier and it’s recommended to limit the height only to 2 courses so the stones will not fall out.
