How To Make Great Garden Edging _ Gardening _ Great Home Ideas

Garden easy it’s one of those simple  things that can turn a good garden into  a great garden so we’re gonna look at a  range of options from the cheapest to  something that’s a little bit flash  maybe I’ll decide which one will work  best at your place well here’s a common  picture the owners have spent some money  and really done up this garden bed  nicely now if they leave the edge as it  is they run the risk of the lawn taking  over the garden bed but it’s an easy fix  just grab a spade it Spade finish means you cut away the soil and you create an  edge on the side of the lawn.

There’s  lots of positives towards this Spade  finish it gives you a raised garden bed  meaning when there’s too much water  falling on your garden it runs off to  pretty much what’s a curb and gutter  it’s also really easy to maintain  because your whipper snipper core is not  going to disintegrate because it’s not  hitting bricks and sandstone best thing  about it it’s free now if you don’t over  whipper snipper you can still do your  edges the old-school way with the space  now if you don’t trust yourself with the  Spade edge you can add some plastic to it at 3 bucks a meter it’s not much more than pocket chain.

Now the way to work  with it is roll it out of the Sun let it  some bake it makes it nice and soft and  easier to work with and then you just  peg it in and put it where you want  another as you can make is steel or  aluminium this product is called linkage  it’s all ready to go for you all you  need to do if the trees smaller firs go  straight over the top of it but if  you’re doing a great big tree you can  separate it just here and then put it  back together now you can see around the  base of this lemon tree where a whipper  snipper used to hit it when the grass  came right up to it a circle like this  will cost you around 45 bucks but it’ll  save your tree I’m going to do it was  put it in dry like this cut it out with  a spade and then hold it into place with  mistakes.

Now we’re moving up into harder  landscaping and it’s about seven bucks a  meter up in price to treated point  treated point means it’s not gonna rot  or get eaten away in your garden but  it’s a permanent boundary for the lawn  it can’t potentially go underneath it so  dig it down a little bit the negatives  are where they join the grass can still  grow through and I haven’t seen a  sleeper that I can bend to make a nice  curve out of you one of my favorites  near bricks you can pick them up the  second-hand yards and they’ll cost you  about fifty or sixty cents each but they  do take a bit longer to put in now.
