Bordering Your Beds: Choosing the Right Edging Solution

Bordering Your Beds: Choosing the Right Edging Solution

When it comes to landscaping, the little details can make all the difference. One of the most important of these details is the edging around your garden beds. There are many options available, each with its own pros and cons. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at three popular edging options: traditional trench edging, king edging, and brick edging.

Traditional Trench Edging

Trench edging is a classic option that involves digging a shallow trench around the perimeter of your garden bed. This trench is then filled with soil, stones, or other materials to create a simple, yet effective border. The biggest advantage of trench edging is that it can be done by hand, so it’s a great choice for those who want to save money and enjoy the process of creating their own garden beds. However, trench edging can be susceptible to erosion and is not the most permanent solution.

King Edging

King edging is a popular choice for those who want a more permanent solution without the hassle of maintenance. This type of edging is made from a sturdy plastic material that is designed to last. It is also designed to be virtually no maintenance, which is a huge plus for busy homeowners. The only downside to king edging is that it can be susceptible to heaving during thaws, but it still remains a popular choice for many.

Brick Edging

Brick edging is another option that offers a more permanent solution. This type of edging is made from bricks or pavers and is designed to last for many years. One of the biggest advantages of brick edging is that it is virtually no maintenance, making it a set-it-and-forget-it solution. Although it comes with a higher price tag, the appeal of a no-maintenance permanent garden bed boundary leaves many homeowners selecting this option.

When it comes to choosing the right edging solution for your garden beds, it all comes down to personal preference and budget. Whether you choose traditional trench edging, king edging, or brick edging, the right choice will help to create a beautiful and well-defined garden bed. So, take your time and consider your options carefully to make the best choice for your landscape. And if you need help, don’t hesitate to reach out to J and R Property Services for expert advice.
