Lawn edging can improve your yard aesthetically and keep grass from invading a flower border. Many kinds of grass spread via stolons (surface runners). Without lawn edging, you’ll be pulling grass out of your flower beds all summer. Edging is one of the best ways to contain flower bed mulch and keep it from spilling into the yard. When installing lawn edging, take it a step further and install a mowing strip next to the edging.
A mowing strip is a narrow row of solid materials such as brick, concrete, wood, or stone. These materials create a flat surface to run your mower over at the edges of your lawn. This way, you can reach the toughest areas of your lawn, eliminating the need for trimming afterward.
