One of the most important details, occasionally overlooked, is a well defined garden edge. It provides more than just a practical solution of keeping the grass from your garden it can add a whole heap of style too.
Choosing the right edge
Space - If you have limited space you are not going to choose a large rock type of edging. Instead you may choose a small brick or a steel edging. Steel can be a visible feature or one that you almost cannot see.
Personality - Make sure that your garden reflects your personality and style. Choose a look that matches your home and the style you love.
Budget - No one wants to break the bank. Know how much you can spend and a professional landscaper can help you stick to that budget. A professional landscaper can ensure that your design fits its location and your needs.
Find inspiration - Sites like Pinterest are perfect for finding inspiration. If you have chosen your professional landscaper ask to see images from their previous work.
Strip edging - Plastic or metal edging is typically used and wonderful for creating curves.
Block edging - This can be a preformed block that generally locks together and has a cap on top.
Stone edging - Typically sandstone is used to create formal edges. However, you can choose larger stones of various sizes for a natural looking edge.
Gabion Edging - A gabion is a steel cage filled with rocks, or stones etc. to make a unique edge or wall.
Timber - Sleepers are the perfect edge, affordable and versatile for many gardens.
Brick - A recycled brick edge can be lovely for a cottage garden.
Use your imagination and the choices are endless as to what you can use for your garden edging. Ask your professional landscaper for advice on what is going to suit your landscape and your design.
