Edging your lawn won't keep it weed-free — you'll need natural or chemical treatments for that — but creating a barrier between your grass and other plants in your landscape can make your yard appear neater and more attractive. Plus, with landscape edging products, you can create shapes and borders that give your lawn visual interest and plant many types of plants in close proximity, so long as they have room to grow.
How to chose the border edging:
Your local garden center probably has several different edging kits available, including plastic landscape edging, aluminum landscape edging, steel landscape edging and others. Landscape edging borders also include concrete landscape edging, brick landscape edging and decorative landscape edging such as lattice or fencing.
Plastic border edging advantage:
For eco-friendly edging, try a post-consumer plastic product such as a 100-percent recycled brown lawn edging coil that provides a textured, wood-grained look that blends with mulch, rocks or soil.This type of edging is installed with plastic stakes and blocks, producing a durable boundary to prevent grass from spreading.
