There are also options that are made with wood logs and terracotta, which add a natural, earthy look to your garden. You can even get a landscape edging system that includes rubber barriers, which prevent soil from being trampled on.
Another option is plastic edging, which is popular for its ease of installation and no-dig capability. You can buy preformed sections, which are ready to be set in place, or you can create a custom edge with simple forms and connectors.
If you’re installing this type of edging, be sure to mark out the location where you’ll cut off the bottom row of plastic so it doesn’t break off. This is especially important if there are tree roots in the area, because you’ll need to cut away the plastic to fit around them.
Lastly, it’s worth noting that you may need to adjust the plastic edging from time to time to accommodate for soil changes and other changes in your yard. You’ll also need to readjust the spikes in your edging to ensure that it’s still firmly holding the soil in place.
