5 Easy Garden Edging Ideas
Edging around your garden keeps your mulch in place, shows clear lines between garden beds, walkways, and grass areas, and can ease your garden's care.
These 5 edging ideas are easy to set up and install.
1) Concrete Pavers or Blocks
- Separate your garden materials with blocks or pavers.
- They come in various sizes and shapes to fit just the look you want.
- This material can be shaped for your unique garden beds.
- These usually come with stakes to help install them.
3) Natural Trench or Lip
- This option has no actual materials to install.
- Use a shovel to create your edge line and then create your lip by creating a 45-degree shovel cut from the side of your edge line, removing the soil.
- Use treated or untreated wood in different cut sizes and lengths to edge your beds and grass areas.
- You might have a lot of wood to use, but be aware that meeting up board ends for a finished look could be very challenging.
- A fun option when you don't have to or want to dig a space to place your edging. Using a rubber-mallet, they are ready to be installed fast. This option is less form fitting than the non-rigid plastic edging we just told you about and isn't as durable with repeated grass trimming maintenance machinery.
