How To Make Great Garden Edging | Gardening | Great Home Ideas



garden easy it's one of those simple things that can turn a good garden into a great garden so we're gonna look at a range of options from the cheapest to something that's a little bit flash maybe I'll decide which one will work best at your place well here's a common picture the owners have spent some money and really done up this garden bed nicely now if they leave the edge as it is they run the risk of the lawn taking over the garden bed but it's an easy fix just grab a spade it Spadefish means you cut away the soil and you create an edge on the side of the lawn there's lots of positives towards this spade finish it gives you a raised garden bed meaning when there's too much water falling on your garden it runs off to pretty much what's a curb and gutter it's also really easy to maintain because your whipper snipper core is not going to disintegrate because it's not hitting bricks and sandstone best thing about it it's free now if you don't have a whipper snipper you can still do your edges the old-school way with the space now if you don't trust yourself with the Spade edge you can add some plastic to it at 3 bucks a meter it's not much more than pocket chain now the way to work with it is roll it out of the Sun let it some bake it makes it nice and soft and easy to work with and then you're just peg it in and put it where you want it another is you can make is steel or aluminium this product is called linkage it's all ready to go for you all you need to do if the tree smaller firs go straight over the top of it but if you're doing a great big tree you can separate it just here and then put it back together now you can see around the base of this lemon tree where a whipper snipper used to heat it when the grass came right up to it a circle like this will cost you around 45 bucks but it'll save your tree what I'm going to do is put it in dry like this cut it out with a spade and then hold it into place Chris mistakes now we're moving up into harder landscaping and it's about seven bucks a meter up in price to treated point treated point means it's not going to rot or get eaten away in your garden but it's a permanent boundary for the Lord it can potentially go underneath it so dig it down a little bit the negatives are where they join the grass can still grow through and I haven't seen a sleeper that I can bend and make a nice curve out of yet why don't my favorites now bricks you can pick them up at secondhand yards and they'll cost you about fifty or sixty cents each but they do take a bit longer to put in now I'm doing the brick on edge here which is higher than the lawn but a lot of it's still in the soil which is going to give it more strength than just a mora that's sitting on and I'm not using the spirit level with a bubble I'm just using it to make sure they're all on the one plane now it's pretty hard to keep bricks clean when you're mucking around with mud so don't worry if it's a bit messy you can always sponge it off with clean water and I think it's worthwhile pointing out which means putting the mud between the bricks if you don't there's just a free way for the grass to grow into your garden bit and my last garden edge and the one that I'm gonna leave here forever is some beautiful sandstone there before I lay it wet which means lay it on the mud we're gonna put a few out dry so I can get the angles right see we've got that great big joint then what I can do is just put a spirit level or a piece of timber over that mirror the cut on both side use an angle grinder and then I'm left with a nice 10 mil joint perfect just like a pro well all my joints look really nice and even at the moment it's a bit up and down but that doesn't matter the mud will make up the difference and we'll all end up on the one plane now how do you do it well give it one piece of stone and lay one piece of stone at a time so take it out put the mud in wet the bottom side of the stone and then put it back in now you wet it so it doesn't draw all the moisture out of your mortar or your mud mix for draws it out too quick the mortar will dry separately to the stone and they won't be stuck now before you feel the joint you want to wet it as well so it doesn't dry out and crack and then all you do hold the plants back and flick it in now flick Innings good you feel the whole joint you wipe off the excess wait for that to be semi dry and then sponge it off and look a million bucks well I think the sense that looks really smart if you like the look of it like that it's only gonna look better as it ages the best thing about it you can mow straight over the top of it and you don't have to do the edges all the time I reckon the other one that's timeless is the first one the cheapest one the Spade edge we've been doing that ever since we've been gardening but if the brick or the plastic or the timber suits your place in your budget go for

    Winner of a video, I have been researching "photo landscape design" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you ever come across – Giyily Landscaping Yatty – (search on google ) ? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my cousin got excellent success with it.

    Best cart ever⌯⌯⌯ t.co/RGp9gGIINt   The ability to use as a wheelbarrow for hauling firewood to using the dolly feature for hauling appliances up and down stairs. I moved a metal lathe with this… very stable. I've used it to leverage equipment into place. I've had it for well over a year now. No complaints!
