Silly question from a novice.I have flower beds that are slowly turning into praire.I usually cut the lawn up to and over the edge into the flower bed.How do you get a neat edge? Is there some sort of edging stuff thats almost invisible, not poncy mini fencing or bricks and not heavy railway sleepers.
Pair of shears or long-handled edging shears or one of those halfmoon spade things to slice of the overhang or turf. I re-do it once or twice a year.
If course you can spend a fortune on electric gadgets!
I just use a spade to cut a straight line. Today it's raining so ground is soft enough to get a sharp, neat edge! I shall venture out later to do mine......maybe
but if you cut a new edge with a spade wont your flower bed get slowly bigger.
I saw stuff in our garden centre last week which is plastic edging, that slots down between the lawn & flowerbed, and is almost invisible
www.everedge.co.uk this stuff is brilliant, but expensive. Much nicer than plastic and more robust too.
