Here we want to show you what benefits you would have. On one hand the bedding and lawn edges have a purely decorative function, on the other hand they put a boundary between the garden paths and flower beds, and will give your outdoor area a new look. The edges can be high or low, made of wood or stone, but in all cases you need to find the right look for your garden. The curbs have a long history. If you decide to make a curb for your flower beds edges, you can search for ideas from the Renaissance to different design solutions in the Italian gardens. The edges are made of stone, brick, metal, wood or clay.

Sometimes, you might feel homesick and remember the old house of your grandparents and the rural farm next door? If you plan to re-create this rural atmosphere in your garden, then you can design the lawn and flower beds stone edging with polished river stones. Large oval stones can be collected directly from a nearby river or buy those at a hardware store. You can then move the lawn edging stones and set them as an accent in the garden. In order to emphasize the natural beauty of river stones, you can arrange them using the easiest way – next to each other or over each other, so that a low wall is formed. Since the shape of the stones is quite different and they do not fit together, it is recommended to cement them. If you add ivy or moss later, they would give your green garden a romantic touch.
Use plants to create a border instead of stones
If you want to feel a bit of the intimacy of the Renaissance gardens in your garden, then use your flower beds and transform them into an edge of plants. The most commonly used species for this purpose during the Renaissance was the boxwood. Today it is still used in garden design. The advantage of this plant is that it is persistent and survives the cold winter well. The boxwood can decorate your garden all year round. The boxwood is an easy growing plant that requires no special care. Its disadvantage is that it grows slowly. So you need time to form your flower beds and lawn edge with boxwood. In addition, it must be trimmed regularly, so you can get the necessary and desired shape. The green edges can be in various forms – straight, circular or, depending on your preferences.
