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.
