There are many ways to add extra appeal and even value to your landscape. One such way is by installing stone edging for your flower bed or garden. There are a ton of different materials that you can use for the stone, so the possibilities can feel endless. That also makes it really easy to find the stone that matches the rest of the landscape perfectly.
Giving Your Landscaping Some Definition
Stone edging provides definition to your garden, flower beds, and other areas in your landscape. Basically, this stone edging creates borders around certain areas in your landscape. These borders can help to provide emphasis to certain areas.
These definitions can also add levels to your landscaping by acting as a mini retaining wall. You can use stone edging to take a large flower bed and turn it into a beautiful tiered bed. Each level can have its own personality and design.
Improves Visual Aesthetic
Stone has always given a boost to aesthetic appeal, and stone edging is no different. From beautiful stone walkways to gorgeous stone patios, it’s a versatile addition to any landscape. Plus, while it may not necessarily add a monetary value to the property, it does add value to any potential buyers. A yard that looks beautiful is a lot more appealing to potential buyers than a run down lawn that isn’t taken care of.
Provides Containment For Gardens And Flower Beds
Now we can get into some of the more practical benefits of adding stone edging to flower beds and other areas of your landscape. When it comes to gardens and flower beds, stone edging provides not only definition, but also containment. These sections of your lawn typically don’t do well when weeds and other plants in the yard start to cross over.
The containment from the stone edging provides a safety barrier so you can keep only what you want in that section. When installed properly, this stone edging will go below the soil line to create a barrier for the roots, as well. This helps to make sure that the roots from the plants inside of the border don’t grow too far, and vice versa.
Easier And More Convenient Lawn Maintenance
When areas of your lawn have a stone edge border, maintenance becomes so much easier and convenient. This is especially true when you probably want to keep grass clippings out of your garden bed.
The maintenance becomes easier both inside and out. On the outside, it’s much easier to trim thanks to the stone barrier. Irrigation also becomes easier to control. There are ways to build a drainage system for beds that have stone edging so that excess water can be drained out of the beds, while keeping water from the rest of the yard out of the garden bed to prevent the plants from getting drowned.
