We are getting ready clean out the flower beds around our home and in my opinion, edging is what takes a flower bed from drab to fab! Maintaining flower beds can be a pain in the butt, I kind of despise that part of the project but it’s necessary.
If you have many flower beds, you can rent a gas powered edger which makes life much easier!
To get motivated, I found these gorgeous flower beds with fabulous edging as inspiration.

While natural as shown below is the most economical, it’s the most difficult to maintain as the grass continually tries to grow into the bed! ha
Brick edging is my favorite but not in the budget this year. I love how they created a winding path using brick edging below.
Concrete is also beautiful.
I love the brick above with another edge of black mulch. Layered edging is beautiful! Edging is a must when landscaping and adding curb appeal to your home.
It just makes everything clean, crisp and beautiful. Have you tried edging? Do you edge with a traditional hand edger or do you rent a gas powered edger? We are using a hand edger for this particular flower bed project but I may rent one for the day and complete the remaining beds. Using a hand edger is a lot of work! 😉
