Budget-Saving Garden Edging Ideas for Your Garden

A garden edging is a small detail that has a practical and aesthetic impact. Properly installed edging can prevent weeds and grass from invading your well-maintained garden. It also retains mulch and plants, resulting in a polished, finished look that can transform a disorganized jungle of plants into a space full of appeal.

But choosing the right material for your garden edging is crucial to getting the right look and making sure your landscaping project fits within your budget. To find out what you should look for when edging your garden, we spoke to garden professional Michael Clarke. Clarke has a degree in landscape architecture and horticulture from the University of California at Davis and worked as a master gardener for 15 years before founding Pulled Inc, an online platform that helps homeowners find service providers and experts in their area.
