There is a wide variety of materials available for lawn edging and landscaping borders. These includes plastic, metal, wood, brick and stone. Concrete curbing offers a durable and attractive alternative.
Why Use Concrete for Lawn and Landscape Edging?
Plastic edging is more easily damaged by lawnmowers and other lawn maintenance machinery. Some types can suffer color fading or become brittle due to sun exposure. Plastic edging is not as rigid as concrete. It can pull out easier or stray from its intended location.
Some metal lawn edging can rust. Metal can be dented. It’s pretty hard to dent concrete. Metal edging is usually quite thin and doesn’t have the bold visual impact or styling choices of concrete curbing.
Wooden lawn edging and landscape borders have a tendency to rot. Treated wood won’t rot as quickly, but then there are considerations to be made for the chemicals in treated wood, especially when food crops are involved. Splinters can also be an issue.
Bricks and stone lawn and garden borders can be nice but mortars can crack with freezing and thawing. If they’re not mortared, stone or brick can stray or be knocked from where they are supposed to be.
These drawbacks can by and large be avoided by installing continuous concrete landscape borders. Your investment in concrete curbing will pay off with years of satisfaction.
