homify’s best garden edging tips and ideas
So, what are our options for garden edging? Well, let’s break it down into two main categories: natural and simulated.
Natural garden edgings can be created with plants, piled rocks, mulch and/or wood. With a less formal appearance, these options also blend in very easily with most landscapes.
Plants:The most commonly used and includes examples like ornamental grasses, ground covers, flowers and small shrubs.
Rocks and stone: Available in many styles, this type of edging ensures a nice finished look for a garden. It also stands out beautifully among flowers and foliage.
Mulch: A mulch garden edging is achieved by stripping grass from the outer edges of beds, borders and walkways. These areas are then filled with mulch. This option allows for flexibility in case your existing garden or area changes in size or shape in the future.
Wood: Available in various styles (from natural to decorative and even simulated), wood edging can be created using landscaping timbers or railroad ties. Keep in mind that treated wood can harm plants and insects beneficial to your garden. Untreated wood, on the other hand, will deteriorate over time and will need to be replaced; however, it’s a much safer option for the environment. Although wood edging can be more difficult when adjusting curves, it will ultimately create a more natural appearance.
