Bed edging may seem like something for sleeping, but in fact it is related to landscaping. By definition bed edging adds a border to your gardening space. There are many great reasons to have this other than for visual purposes. Placing it in the right place, it can prevent plant roots and other gardening related products from leaving the gardening space. When you are maintaining your garden, it makes it much easier when mowing or using a weed whacker.
- Edging helps define your gardening space because it allows you to mark off that area from the rest of the yard.
- Edging material keeps all gardening components where they need to be when the borders installed properly.
- A bed border makes the garden look better aesthetically and there are multiple different design options you can choose from.
“The underground portion of the border prevents the plant roots from growing outside the bed, while keeping grass in the lawn.”
