  • Stone materials can be prepared to create a fine border. These can include natural bush rocks, although some stone tile materials can be used as well.
  • Bricks can establish a rustic and classic look to your entire landscape.
  • Paved surfaces can be used against the lawn side of the edging to make mowing easier.

The gardens that such edges enclose  should be considered as well. You won’t want high edgings if the plants in the garden grow low to the ground.  Tall edgings go with tall plants; short, low edgings enhance smaller plants such as annuals.
