Improve the Look of your Gardens by using a Lawn Edger / Bedshaper

Posted by in on . 0 Comments
 
Few things are as aggravating to a gardener than a lawn that sneaks into flower beds. Once there, the grass roots are very difficult to extricate once they infiltrate perennial plants. While there are many types of edging materials, none has been invented that can't be outsmarted by grass.
 
The most effective barrier is a cliff. That's right, create a small cliff to edge your beds. Grass can't grow into air. For small applications, use a flat spade to cut straight down at the edge of the bed. Remove the sod and you'll end up with a cliff beyond which the grass can't grow. Grade the soil in the flower bed into a slope that ends at the cliff, not allowing any plants with eight inches or so of the great divide.
 
 
If you want a straight edge, use stake and string to make it neat. Curved edges are also possible.
 
The cliff usually needs to be re-cut each spring; remove eroded soil that fills it in. 
 
We have several excellent edging options for you to consider.  We invite you to come in and see which option best suits your needs, application and budget.  We look forward to helping you.
