Landscaping edging ideas include bricks, flagstones or rocks, plants, metal edging and pavers. Depending on the type of material, the garden edges may be raised or level with the ground. Above-ground borders add to the aesthetic, while in-ground borders are easier to mow over.
Bricks and pavers are similar because they are uniform in size and typically rectangular for easy stacking. Burying the bricks and pavers so they are level with the ground allows the caretaker to mow over them for easy maintenance. Another option is to stack pavers to make a raised garden border. The flat nature of flagstones also allows them to be stacked. For a natural border, a low, mounding plant such as sweet alyssum or coral bells along the garden edge is an option.
