For a truly beautiful landscape design that enhances curb appeal and your enjoyment of your property, it’s important to consider how everything comes together. Much like the perfect belt, perfect pair of shoes, or a statement piece of jewelry can take an outfit from lovely to amazing, so too, can landscape edging put the finishing touch on your design.
If you’re looking for a high end, finished look, avoid the plastic or black rubber edging. You might save money, but you’ll sacrifice on beauty.
Landscape Edging Ideas
If you’re looking for elegant or modern landscape edging ideas, you’ll find lots of ideas just from a quick Internet search. The images that come up will be a great start for giving you an idea of what’s possible. Putting in edging can be a lot of work, especially if you’re dealing with heavy stone or pavers. In addition, there is some preparation (digging) needed before putting the edging in.
Unless you have a truck, a wheelbarrow, and the free labor that comes with having teenagers in your family, you may want to hire a landscaping company like LiveWell Outdoors to create the design and complete the installation.
Most of our clients either go with stone edging or landscape edging pavers. Both provide a beautiful, natural look to your landscape design, and can tie everything together.
Natural Stone Landscape Edging
Stone edging comes in all shapes and sizes, as well as combinations of different kinds of stones and rock. Some of your options for garden beds and raised beds include:
- Dry Stack
- Flagstone Slabs
- River Rock
- Garden Boulders
- Garden Walls
By using natural stone, you can get a truly custom look, as no two stones, rocks, or boulders are exactly alike.
Landscape Edging Pavers
Landscape edging pavers are another beautiful option. They give you the look of natural stone, but are more uniform, and less expensive to buy and install. Your options include:
- Garden Walls
- Garden Borders
- Retaining Walls
- Dry Stack
- Low Edging
With landscape edging pavers, you can choose from rectangular and rounded pavers in a huge variety of sizes, colors, and textures. You can even get precast pavers that look like wood edging to use as permanent garden edging that will never rot.
Keep in mind that the landscape edging you choose to use should complement your driveway, walkways, and patio. A cohesive look is the best way to showcase your landscape design.
