Mowing, trimming, mulching, edging. The outdoor chore list for homeowners seems to never end, and it may be tempting to take one job off the list. Many homeowners view edging as an extra, an add-on, a nice to have but not need to have. Nothing could be further from truth. Landscape edging is an important part of maintaining the shape of your garden.
What is Landscape Edging?
Landscape edging is the crisp, clean line that separates the areas of your garden or landscaping beds. The line can be straight or flowing, and can be made of plastic, rubber, concrete, stone or rocks. It can also be a line made with a garden spade or an electric landscape edger.
There are many benefits to edging:
- It keeps the grass from growing into your landscaping beds
- It prevents mulch and soil from spilling into your yard, especially after a heavy rain
- It helps to maintain clear walkways
- It separates your garden into organized sections, achieving the look you want
- It improves the aesthetics of your yard. Without the clear definition, your landscaping will look unkempt and detract from the beauty of your yard
- The crisp lines makes certain the original landscape design is maintained
In the end, a yard that has been edged will save on the ongoing maintenance costs. It’s an investment in the landscaping you’ve already purchased, and is necessary to ensure your yard stays looking it’s best.
