Be Creative with Landscape Edging

When landscaping, one often finds a need to use edging. Edging adds a decorative touch to any project. It also allows for the creation of carefully planned and defined lines, which may be critical to an overall visual effect. Landscape edging also has some very pragmatic benefits, preventing the displacement of soil and often serving as a barrier to weeds in particular areas.

Landscape edging comes in every imaginable shape and size. One can use wood edging in a variety of styles. Black plastic edging is an old standby and an economical way to handle edging needs. Others may prefer stone edging that matches their home or walkways. Metal edging is available, too.

The great variety in edging products creates a great creative opportunity for the landscaper. Not only is thousands of commercial landscape edging products available, there is also room to create and construct your own edging. There really is no limit to number of ways one can address their edging needs, making it a perfect creative outlet!

If you tore down an older out building during the landscaping process, you may be able to use the wood from that old structure to edge. Perhaps the old tin roof from that very same decimated building could be converted into landscape edging. This allows you to bring something from the old into the new in a creative way.

Is your area rich in a distinctive type or color of stone? If so, it may be the perfect source of landscape edging. Instead of relying on pre-cut pieces of uniformly cut stone, the creative landscaper can find a way to use self-gathered rock from the area to create a stunning landscape edging technique.

Landscape edging may serve to create boundaries, but there doesn’t need to be any creative boundaries when conceiving edging options. The number of possible materials is amazing; the number of possible techniques is truly infinite.

There is nothing wrong with going to a supplier and finding commercially available landscape edging material. Millions of homeowners rely on this kind of edging and millions more will purchase it in the future. However, if you are looking for a way to bring something more of yourself—something individual and unique—into the landscaping process, you may want to look at landscape edging as one way of accomplishing that goal.
