LANDSCAPE BED EDGING

Landscape beds benefit from some sort of landscape edging, whether the edge is cut into the soil with a sharp spade or it's more of a permanent landscape edging material made from plastic, metal or masonry products. In addition to creating a well-defined border on a flower bed, edging also helps prevent the spread of stoloniferous grasses into the landscape bed area.

 

Edges cut mechanically or with a spade need to be re-cut at least once a year, while impervious edging tends to be a more permanent solution provided expanding shrub growth has been taken into consideration. While impervious edgings will cost more at the outset, some savings will be realized over time since beds won't have to be re-edged every year.

We've posted some photos below of various types of landscape edging installed by homeowners and other landscapers in Pennsylvania landscapes to give you some ideas of what type of edging you might like to use.
