Edging Options for Outstanding Landscape Design

Published on: March 10, 2014

A perfectly planned and landscaped property is a beauty to behold. It can also require an exhausting level of care and work to maintain. Thankfully, there are scores of simple ways you can reduce the amount of time you spend on upkeep, and more time enjoying the fruits of your labors.

One of the most effective and often overlooked landscape design options at your disposal is landscape edging. Available in a wide range of materials and styles, it’s easy to find an option which complements your overall landscaping design and the architectural style of your home.

  • Plastic Edging – One of the most common and least expensive edging options is made of plastic. It can be installed quickly and relatively easy, but may need to be replaced earlier than other options due to plastic’s tendency to degrade in direct sunlight.
  • Aluminum Edging – While it’s a bit more challenging to find and install, aluminum edging enjoys a much longer life than its plastic brethren. It’s not often available at big box garden centers, but a landscaping professional should be able to procure and install aluminum edging with ease.
  • Pavers, Stones and Brick – Often the most attractive and stylish option, brick and stone pavers are a durable, weather resistant option with plenty of artistic flair. They’re available in a wide array of finishes and styles, and can be matched to your driveway, paved surfaces and walkways to a startling degree of accuracy.

Because some options aren’t easily located in retail outlets and chain home improvement stores, it’s best to work with an experienced landscaping professional in your area to access a greater variety of edging styles and materials.
