Garden borders are an important part of your landscaping. They make your decor stand out, add color and interest to the room, and keep animals away from plants. The sculptural lines can be realized from pretty much anything, they could be installed in a few hours, an effort that could beautify your garden for life. In addition to edging garden beds, you can edging various parts of your garden – terraces, paths and lawns. We have prepared the coolest and daring garden edging ideas for gardens of various styles. Let yourself be inspired!
Rocks and pebbles
Large rocks and river pebbles are the most natural idea for delimiting your garden: they transform it into a more natural space that is great for relaxing gardens or reducing the formality in a well-kept garden. You can even use a combination of river stones and smaller pebbles to make the room look even fresher. Another idea here is a gabion wall, the appearance of which is also very natural, but such a wall better protects the garden beds from the animals. These ideas will help you transform the garden with simple elements at no cost.
Stones and bricks
Garden stone and bricks are a timeless solution. There is nothing more popular than this as these types of edges go well with many landscape styles. Go for laconic traditional stones in a neutral shade or add retro chic with red brick – it’s up to you, besides, such an edge is very durable – just like stones.
Living Edging is a fresh idea for a modern garden that will add more plants and maybe colors to your garden. You can even skip any garden beds that only frame parts of your garden with living edges. These can be all kinds of succulents, cacti, flowers, and greens that you like. Just keep an eye on your edge and don’t forget that it takes a lot of maintenance.
Another fresh and contemporary idea is lighting – a perfect way to illuminate your walkways and other parts of the garden at night. Edges of light give the room a modern feel, and you can skip installing lamps and lanterns – there will be enough light.
If you live by the ocean and one of your greatest passions is diving, this might be the garden edge for you: giant seashells can create a border for your garden, and the effect is interesting to say the least. If you have smaller seashells don’t worry – you can also use them by tucking them into the edges instead of pebbles. A very environmentally friendly idea!
The cinder block is a common option and part of its popularity stems from its dual role as a rim and a planter. It allows the gardener to create a second layer of flowers that further border the plants that they demarcate. The cinder block is also inexpensive, and you can expose it or let it sink to suit your style perfectly.
Glass bottle edge
Glass bottles are an extremely durable, highly graphic, basically free resource. Use them of different colors in your garden for a clean look. This is a good idea to recycle any existing wine bottles and add color to the room.
Terracotta pots are graphic on their own, but when you add them, things get even more beautiful. You can place these vertically with plants in them or horizontally on top of each other, regardless of whether both solutions are very graphic. Woven garden borders are great for vegetable gardens or just rustic ones. Wooden garden edges aren’t very durable, but you have a very natural and inexpensive solution. Get inspired!
