- Easiest way to edge around flower beds or gardens is to simply build a trench around the perimeter. Use shovel with straight edge. Edging shovels and dig a trench a few inches deep around the perimeter of your flower bed or garden. The extra dirt can be added to the garden or to another area of the yard where it is needed.
- You can also use colorful stones or rocks for making an edge between the garden and planting space.
- Growing flowers as a border around the garden is not only practical for limiting the growth of weeds. To do this dig a trench around the perimeter of the garden and then plant with your favorite perennials.
- Decorative edging which means use plastic, brick or wooden edging to separate the garden and planting space. This is pretty easy to install and makes great edging around flower beds and even as a perimeter around sidewalks and the driveway.
- Maintaining the edge periodically is necessary either by hand or using a gas or electric edger or even a weed wackier.
