Keeping a uniform-looking landscape is half the battle in property maintenance. Your landscape does not necessarily need to be filled with expensive enhancements and complex installation, it can simply be clean. If you keep up with general landscaping maintenance, like mowing, pruning, and fertilization, there are a few small investments you can make that will make your property look that much more professional. These investments all center around maintaining structure in your landscape. Mulch is a great example of this, but the topic of today is actually what keeps mulch in its designated area. Landscape edging is an inexpensive way to create uniformity on your property, which is a necessary aesthetic. Here are four trendy types of landscape edging to consider for your landscape.

Brick or Stone Landscape Edging

Sometimes classy and trendy crossover, which is exactly what brick and stone landscape edging is. While it may be a more expensive option, it is sure to make up for that with unbeatable durability and longevity. If you choose to use brick or stone, you should have a fairly high edge, and should not have to worry about decorative rock or mulch escaping. It can also fit the theme of your home if there is other brick or stone around. Our favorite option from an aesthetic standpoint, stone is a timeless trend.

Metal Landscape Edging

Another classic option that has made a resurgence in recent years is metal. Close to stone on the durability front, metal might not seem to be the most aesthetically pleasing choice, but you would be surprised at the sleek look. It also has the ability to bend and curve, which is unique to the material. It is also installed deep into the soil, so it will prevent weeds from invading your property. Metal is also one of the easiest installs which you will be happy to hear. When it comes to the type of metal, aluminum is usually the way to go.

Plastic Landscape Edging

The primary benefit of plastic edging as a material is that it comes with a ton of variety. You can select color, size, and thickness very easily. It is also on the cheaper side, great if you are not in your lifelong home, or plan to install something more intensive in the future. Plastic flexes easily for any bed shape and is of course an easy installation. It is very quiet but does the job, so it has become trendy for flying under the radar and highlighting the plants themselves.

Natural Landscape Edging: Plant Material

One of our favorite ways to edge in a landscape is naturally. Using installed plant material to create a barrier between sections of the property keeps the uniform look without the need for excess material. Lines of shrubs, tall flowers, or even tall wild grass are all great ways to edge your landscape. Although it might be more work to maintain, the look is sure to impress.
