When we look at garden edging we want both attractive and functional ideas. Metal garden edging is one of the best products to come onto the market in recent years. It is long lasting, easy to install and if you choose the right product it comes in long lengths that eliminates numerous joins.
It might seem funky to use old bottles, random pieces of timber or old crockery. However for long lasting low maintenance garden edging we are suggesting a different approach. Stone and metal are the two longest lasting materials.
Metal is available if Corten steel which gives a weathered or rusted look from the time of installation.
Landscape and garden edging is both functional and decorative. Material and ideas include and range of traditional and modern designs and products now available for sale in Australia. Materials include metal (steel) garden edging, concrete, timber, brick and masonry edging, and incorporating many contemporary designs, products and ideas.
Edging products all have different qualities that make them suited to a variety of garden applications, flexibility, ease of installation and decorative appearance are all important factors when selecting any edging material
Garden Edging Products, Materials and Uses
Garden edging is used for both practical and aesthetic purposes. Materials such as metal, brick, stone, plastic and concrete edging all have a place and ideas vary with landscape requirements and design.
It is also widely used in landscaping projects to help retain paving stones or paver’s. The two major types are the flexible and removable edging products which include steel, timber and also PVC. And the fixed products such as brick and concrete.
The final choice of edging materials for garden beds or landscaping will be based on a combination of design considerations (garden design), cost, functional requirements, decorative requirements and ease of installation.
