What types of garden border edging are available?
You can find garden border edging in a multitude of different materials, so there’s a large degree of flexibility when it comes to choosing. Wooden garden border edging is the most popular and as general rule of thumb, it’s also the most varied. You can get wooden spiked border rolls which look natural when used to cordon off a flower bed. Or if you want to spend a little extra, you can opt for a beautiful willow fence and give your garden a natural aesthetic. For a seamless border, why not go for some more inconspicuous edging? It functions in much the same way as other edging varieties, but is hidden below the lawn line.
Plastic is another highly popular material used in garden border edging, with a few distinct advantages. Plastic is highly malleable and you can buy garden border edging in a huge number of shapes, themes, and colours. Stone effect plastic garden border edging is a great way to create an authentic, rustic vibe. Rust-resistant, galvanised steel garden border edging is for those gardeners looking for function over style. It’s generally the strongest type of border edging and is a great way of reducing the spread of weeds.
One thing to think about is the shape of your garden. Is your lawn wavy? You might want to avoid solid plastic or metal edging sold in short lengths. Whilst great for straight lines, they are difficult to adjust to wonky gardens. Instead, buy adjustable metal edging or wooden spike edging so you can easily shape it around the lawn’s border.
