Garden Edging Systems
Whether you’re planning to build an intimate sitting area with a vine-covered bench, or an expansive vegetable garden that encircles a lawn, landscape edging systems can be a key element of your outdoor design. It serves as a visual separation between separate areas of your garden, and also prevents grass and mulch from migrating into adjacent beds. The finishes available are RedCor (Corten), Gal, and ZAM.
How to Choose the Right One For Your Garden
There are a variety of landscape edging options to choose from, and each one has a specific function and aesthetic appeal. The right choice will depend on the look you want to achieve, as well as your budget.
Brick: An elegant option for a simple but sophisticated dividing line, brick edging comes in various sizes and styles, making it easy to match with other elements in the garden or to create a pattern. The masonry material is long-lasting and durable, and can be used as a practical edging to protect plants from mowing.
Wood: Another natural material, wood edging provides a natural feel and can be used for any garden area. It can be laid flat for a subtle border or set upright edge-to-edge to make a more noticeable line.
Plastic: A common, inexpensive edging material, plastic landscape edging is sold in a wide variety of colors and thicknesses at home improvement stores and garden centers. Buy the thickest edging you can to better withstand the bumps and knocks of lawn mowers.
Metal: Conclusion: A popular and understated solution for gardeners, metal edging can be used to create a tidy, uniform boundary around a lawn or flower bed. It creates a clean separation that doesn’t draw attention to the surrounding materials or smother the plants, and it can be installed with ease.
