A nice clean garden edge gives your landscape definition and texture. Of course, we’d all love a professionally designed garden area, but the cost of materials alone can be astronomical. These lawn edging ideas are innovative and beautiful to give you the function and aesthetics without the high costs.

You can keep your lawn edging as basic or creative as you’d like based on your location, landscape and budget. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

    Gabion Wall

I love this look, especially for raised beds. You can fill the wall with just about any size of rocks depending on what is available in your area.

Wood Edging

This is a simple idea to create your own edging with cedar wood that is just over six inches high. You could easily make it higher if you need to.

    Stone

Stone makes a good option if you want a more natural look. The idea is simple, but you may need some extra muscle help to carry the stones and place them in the right spots. Stones of universal size work best for this technique.

 

    Terra Cotta

This is a beautiful sleek edging created with terra cotta pieces, similar to brick, but with a smooth finish.

    Tree Branches

If you live in an area with several fallen trees, use what you have and create a wall of your own. This is a natural, rustic, old-fashioned look.

    Raised Beds

Creating a raised garden bed is a great way to create a beautiful garden area and clear edging at the same time.

    Metal Edging

This is one of the most inexpensive edging options. Flexible metal is easy to install in an afternoon and creates a clean line around flower beds, trees, and property lines.

 Gravel

Simply dig a ditch around the edge of your bedding area and fill it in with gravel. It may take a little weeding to keep stubborn weeds from popping up, but it’s easy to install and inexpensive.

    Bricks

You can create a beautiful brick edging without the hassle of plaster or the expertise of a mason. 

 Plants

Sometimes you can actually use plants as a plant border. Natural grasses work as a beautiful natural border.

 Wheels

It may take some time to gather old wheels from thrift stores or flea markets, but wired together they make absolutely stunning edging to your flower bed.
