Whether your client wants to frame their vegetable garden or simply line the lawn, they can find an edging system to fit their style and budget. The options vary widely, from inexpensive plastic to high-end metal. Some have spikes that sink into the ground, while others require a trench-digging tool for installation. The choice depends on the amount of work your client wants to put in, the longevity they are looking for, and how well their edging is going to perform.

Metal garden edging systems are effective at keeping grass and other weeds out of flower or vegetable gardens, as well as keeping mulch and soil in place. They also tend to resist damage from lawn maintenance tools and will not rust. Some have slits that are designed to allow water and oxygen to get to plant roots, even when the bed is overrun with excess rainwater.
Sustainable Garden Edging Solutions for Eco-Conscious Gardeners
Corten steel is an on-trend edging option that gives a modern or contemporary garden a weathered look. It is durable, low-maintenance, and eye-catching. Aga Tomaszek (@thishousewemade) uses it to frame her self-made, tropical-vibes backyard, with a curved pathway that contrasts beautifully with the steel edge.
Wood edging is a good choice for most styles of garden, with a crisp thicker wood edge complimenting a more traditional or modern design, while a weathered lower level of the edge works well in cottage or eclectic gardens. Be sure to use a rot-resistant species that can stand up to the climate of your region.
