Edging

Edging your garden beds with a spade establishes the shape and delineation of the beds vis a vis your lawn, and is an effective way to manage the front of your garden beds but not the most attractive. Edging your beds with plants would provide a beautiful focus for the very front of your beds. There is a wide range of edging plants to use in various growing conditions: shade, full sun, salty soils, alkaline or acidic soils.
