Welcome back to the Border Magic Of Lake and Orange Counties blog! Today, we will be talking about how border edging can be one of the best improvements that you can make when it comes to your lawn. Of course, we are a little bit biased, but we want you to have the best lawn that you possibly can. That is why if you are on the fence about getting a nice edging job done on your lawn, that hopefully, we can give you the final push that you need to make your lawn perfect!
It Creates A Nice Contrast Between Your Lawn
While your lawn is great on its own, sometimes it needs to have a contrast in order for it to really pop. When you get edging done on your lawn, it is best to choose something with earth tones. This will contrast nicely with the sidewalk because it will highlight how green the lawn is. There is a reason why you usually see natural grass popping against the earth tones that nature provides. You want to take that natural feeling and simply recreate it with your lawn.
One of the biggest issues that can come from trying to keep your lawn perfect is the maintenance that it actually takes to keep it looking great. When you get a professional edging done, you can be sure that it will help keep your maintenance as low as possible. It does this in two ways. One is that you will have a little less ground to cover when you are mowing the grass. That means less time mowing and more time enjoying. The other reason is that it stops the grass from growing farther than you want it to. When the grass is right next to the sidewalk and not blocked by the border edging, it can start to grow in places you don’t want to such as in between the cracks in the cement. When you get it edged, it completely stops the grass in its tracks.
Creates A Perfect Border
When you own property, you want to make sure that you people know where public property ends and your private property begins. Border edging around your entire lawn not only creates a great dividing line, but it looks great too. In theory, you could create a fence around your entire property, but when you do so, it can often make your house seem more closed off and less welcoming to guests or neighbors. Creating a border around your lawn to divide the sidewalk from your home crafts a great little area so that neighbors and guests feel like your house is open but still understand where the boundary is.
Stops Tree Roots
Trees are one of the best features of any lawn, but sometimes they can cause many issues with your home. If you are like us, you don’t want to remove a tree simply because there are potential issues that could occur, so that’s why we would rather choose to get border edging done around it instead. One of the biggest issues that can come from trees is how big the roots get and how they can end up being rather unpredictable. This can cause problems where it begins to lift up the sidewalk or grow slightly above the ground, impeding your nice, grassy lawn. When you get tree edging done, it creates a great barrier between the tree roots and the sidewalk/lawn. This means that you can keep the tree growing healthy while not having to deal with any of the bad parts of having one on your property.
Not only does it create a great barrier to block the roots but it also can help create a nice space for the tree that doesn’t take a lot of time to maintain. You take away from the space that you would have to mow or cut all while adding more contrast to your yard.
Adds Value To Your Home
For a lot of people, money is what motivates them to constantly improve their house. Putting border edging around your house looks great and provides a lot of curb appeal to potential buyers. While it may be a labor-intensive task, it is also one of the cheaper things that you can do to make your property have more value. While we would recommend it simply because it looks great, if you are planning to sell your house in the future, this is something that you can use to your advantage to upsell the value of your home.
