Flower Garden Edging Ideas
You can stack river stones one over the other to create an enclosure for your flower beds, or use flat-faced stones, like bluestones and flagstones, to create beautiful edging. Special stones are available in nurseries to use. Stones are one of the most used edging material in formal landscapes, since it imparts a beautiful natural ambiance to a garden.
You can modernize brick edging by laying the bricks at an angle so only top angle of the brick appears over the ground. For this, you do not need professionals. Dig up a trench and fill 2 inches with sand. Now place the bricks diagonally so only the top corner of the bricks are exposed. Lean the bricks against each other and fill the trench with soil.
Although one of the least expensive options, plastic edging is not preferred by many home owners and gardeners because it looks unnatural in a garden, and does not have much aesthetic appeal. Nevertheless, it is a good option to consider if you want inexpensive but durable garden edging.
If you want to be more creative, you can use other materials, like old soda bottles, cobblestones, cedar shingles, wine bottles, and even pieces of wood fencing as edging, which will add a whimsical and personalized look to your garden.
