Wooden Edging Keeps Garden Border Neat

Consider alternatives to wood edging:

Wide Brick Edge

Laid flat, bricks give a smart finish to a lawn and are suitable for both formal and informal areas. If they are laid beneath the level of the turf then they make an ideal mowing edge.

Brick Diamonds

For an attractive rustic effect, bricks can be laid on their sides around the edge of the lawn. They should be laid diagonally with about half of the brick in the soil and the remainder above ground.
