Summer is here, and it’s time to whip your landscape into shape for backyard barbecues and picnics on the grass. Along with mowing the lawn, removing weeds, and pruning shrubs, garden design and maintenance is an essential step to a well-manicured landscape. Edgers are an important element to a polished outdoor space as they provide an attractive and practical garden design solution.
What Are They?
Edgers provide a barrier between the grass and garden beds, and they’re available in different materials to match your garden design, including stone, concrete, brick, plastic, tile, wood, or coral. This outdoor enhancer is a permanent, more efficient, and low-maintenance alternative to edging with a machine, which should be used frequently to maintain clean lines. You can use edgers to surround areas that have a separation of lawn and garden area or bare soil, including around walkways and water features as well as flower beds.
What Are the Benefits?
Since this outdoor enhancer creates a crisp delineation between the lawn and garden bed, it can make your landscape appear more polished and keep grass from intruding in the soil and mulch. With edgers, you won’t need to use a trimmer to clean up the edges of the lawn after mowing and weed-whacking. Edgers made from high-quality materials, like durable stone, can last several years and require minimal maintenance. Investing in these will save you time and energy in maintaining a well-manicured garden design.
