Design And Ideas For Landscape Edging
Landscape edging – wood, plastic or metal flexible edging can also be used to make a sudden transition from the lawn to a surrounding garden bed. Unlike pavers, flexible edging is used in a vertical orientation and can be almost invisible. With only a thin edge of the same sample above the floor surface. For that reason, the color and texture of flexible edges do not play a very important role in landscape design. But the edging is an effective material for the creation of curved shapes in a lawn. Flexible edging can be installed low enough. So that it is not damaged by the blade of a lawn mower, or it can be installed a little higher to serve as a solid surface against which a grass cutter can be used to cut the edge of a lawn area.
Instead of cutting grass with an edge cutting tool. You can install a concrete edge, cement pavers, bricks or natural flagstone to act as a barrier to spread paved grass. The border becomes part of the landscape design in the way it is needed and also in the color, texture and pattern of its material. A material with or complements other hardscape features results in a coherent and integrated appearance.
No edging lawn edges, one approach to keeping a clean edge along a lawn grass area is to use a lawn edging tool. The hand-operated tool resembles a shovel except its blade is perfectly flat and just enough to cut through sharp SOD, resulting in a clean edge. Otherwise, grass will sneak into adjacent beds and may even grow above the edge of the paved surfaces. Electricity and tools for lawn-edging with gas engines exist, and those versions make it easier to maintain a large area.
