Do you think your garden looks a bit messy? Is the soil from your flower beds going through your lawn? Garden edging will add character to your garden and will keep it looking tidy. If you want to save, you can have the less expensive DIY garden edging. If you don’t want your hands get dirty, you can hire a handy man or garden maintenance service to help you install your garden edging.
What is Garden Edging
Garden edging is used to separate your garden from another landscape. It can be any type of material that will hold your garden work in its place. It is useful for keeping weeds from growing in your plant beds.
Bricks can be more expensive but can make your garden looking great. Brick edging will particularly last longer if they are properly installed. You can install loose bricks for an informal look that will blend with your garden while they age. You need to use mortar between bricks if you want a more formal look.
Installing Timber Edging
A popular and cheaper garden edging is made of timber. It is the easier way of installing a garden edging. You will need an H-4 grade that is appropriate for in-ground use. You can have it in different sizes from thin to bendable timber.
Concrete Garden Edging
Concrete garden edging is always decorative and useful. It does not require mortar, but you need to be sure you install them plumb and level.
