3 Types of Edging for your Garden

The crew at Ground Level Landscaping & Irrigation do many garden bed installations. Picking the type of flowers and shrubbery is important but also thinking about edging before planting is smart. 

Edging plays an important role in most gardens. Well-designed gardens consist of a series of shapes, each having a different purpose, such as a sitting area or a flower garden. Using landscape edging accentuates each garden area and defines the shape and form of the overall design.

Plastic & Metal Edging

Plastic & metal edging has been popular for many years in gardens throughout Northern Michigan. There is basic, black plastic edging, plastic brick edging and other scalloped or designed edging available at stores like Lowe's or Home Depot. 

Pavers or Rock Edging

If you prefer a little bit more of an elegant look and feel, pavers or rock edging may be for your garden.

Clay, concrete or rocks and bring a sense of uniformity and solidity to gardens using hardscaping.

Natural Edging

Natueral EdgingOne of the looks that is trending now is creating a natural edge around garden beds instead of buying plastic or metal. This would include planting perennials around the edge of your garden bed such as hostas or snow princess alyssum.

The natural edge allows for easier maintenance in the long run and provides more flexibility for your future garden.
