How Flowerbed Edging Will Improve The Look Of Your Garden

Welcome to the Border Magic Of Lake and Orange Counties blog! As the new year rolls in, you might notice some small changes to the site, such as our newly updated blog! We will be creating a new blog about all of your edging needs on a regular basis. So keep it locked right here so you can know all of the new and fun tips that will help make your lawn look its best.

We already know that you have your flowerbed looking the best that it possibly can when it comes to the greenery that you planted. Improving what plants and what colors go together is always the goal of any garden. Even though the flowers are the most important part, you can’t forget about all of the things that can support it and make it absolutely perfect. Flowerbed edging is one of the things that will take your garden from good to great in a matter of hours and here’s why!

It Provides A Supporting Role To The Colors

When you are picking out flowers for your flowerbed you are typically looking for the most vibrant and beautiful ones that you possibly can. When you do this, you don’t want anything else to take away from the splendor of the flowers. Flowerbed edging provides the perfect contrast to that. Most edging will be in natural earth tones. This allows it to pop just enough against the grass to be noticed, but not enough to take away from the colors that are surrounding it. Putting this type of edging in your garden allows brings all the attention to the flowerbed without taking away from it at all.

Allows A Uniform Look

Many natural things are known to have a symmetrical look to them. This is why when we see something in nature that has a uniform look to it is pleasing to our eyes. When you get a border around your flowerbed, even if it is not symmetrical itself it can still make it look more natural and pristine. The edging allows you to plant things in a way that is pleasing to the eye rather than it seeming like the plants are placed at random.

Keeps The Mulch And Dirt Separated From The Grass

When you plant a garden you want to make sure it looks the best that it possibly can. That is why when mulch or dirt begins to spill over onto the grass it can be annoying. You will be constantly trying to put the mulch or dirt back in its place to keep the look that you want. Getting a flowerbed edge around the garden will keep the mulch or dirt from spilling over onto the lawn, which makes it far less of a hassle for you to maintain. While it can often be fun to plant your garden and watch it grow that doesn’t mean that you’ll have a good time constantly maintaining the look that you want. Flowerbed edging takes that small annoyance away for you.

Makes It Easier To Maintain

Having a border around your garden allows you to not only maintain the garden much easier, but it also allows you to maintain the grass easier as well. Without a border, you would have to make sure all the mulch was off of the lawn before you could begin to cut the grass. After all, you wouldn’t want the blades of your lawnmower to become dull because they were fighting through wood chips. With a flowerbed edge, this will help ensure that less mulch is spilling over which means less work for you overall.

Getting your flowerbed edged will also create less work for you down the line. It will allow your flowerbed to look beautiful day in and day out without you having to trim the grass back or having your garden overflow onto the lawn. This means that you can spend more time enjoying your garden and less time working on it.

Keeps The Grass From Growing In Your Flower Bed

Naturally, when you create an edge between your flower bed and your lawn it creates a border in which grass can’t typically grow through for a little bit. Eventually, though, it will start to take over your lawn a little bit. When you create an edge with stones or brick it doesn’t allow the grass to expand into that area at all. So you can rest assured that years down the line, you won’t have to be fighting back grass from taking over your flowerbed.
