The attractive soft gray of slate chippings provides a perfect foil for edging plants.

Geometric Victorian-style brick edging suits both formal and cottage-style gardens.

In an informal area, allow your plants to spill over onto solid brick paving.

Log edging is the ideal choice for seaside-themed gardens, especially when used with a gravel mulch, mixed with larger pebbles.

Copper piping, bent into a graceful curve, provides a pretty edge that echoes the colors of the planting.
