Lawn edging products can make landscaping and maintaining your lawn an easier process. Grasses can be aggressive plants. They like their space and they don't want any other plant in it — unless, of course, that other plant is a dandelion or clover with a strong will and fast-growing root structure.

Edging your lawn won't keep it weed-free — you'll need natural or chemical treatments for that — but creating a barrier between your grass and other plants in your landscape can make your yard appear neater and more attractive. Plus, with landscape edging products, you can create shapes and borders that give your lawn visual interest and plant many types of plants in close proximity, so long as they have room to grow.

Your local garden center probably has several different edging kits available, including plastic landscape edging, aluminum landscape edging, steel landscape edging and others. Landscape edging borders also include concrete landscape edging, brick landscape edging and decorative landscape edging such as lattice or fencing.

Plastic Lawn Edging

For eco-friendly edging, try a post-consumer plastic product such as a 100-percent recycled brown lawn edging coil that provides a textured, wood-grained look that blends with mulch, rocks or soil. This type of edging is installed with plastic stakes and blocks, producing a durable boundary to prevent grass from spreading.

Aluminum + Steel Lawn Edging

Aluminum or steel edging is great for straight-line areas; it won't rust, rot or become brittle. It's installed with stakes and can be molded into shapes and curves. This type of landscape edging comes in a variety of colors such as black, brown, bronze and green and is perfect for flower beds, tree rings, walkways and pathways, brick or stone patios, gardens drip edges and more.

Decorative Lawn Edging

Decorative lawn edging products run the gamut from white plastic lattice to faux-concrete paths that resemble grey stone. Typically, this type of landscape edging is poured or installed "permanently" into your yard by a professional, but it lacks flexibility if your landscape design plan changes.

Brick + Stone Lawn Edging

Bricks, concrete blocks, and stones are great for aesthetic landscaping edging; however, they don't block the growth or cross-growth of plants or grasses unless they're installed a few inches into the ground (as opposed to being laid or stacked on top of the ground). This type of landscaping edging is considered as much a design element as a physical barrier. It can be more labor-intensive than stake-installed edging, but typically lasts much longer and can be a permanent part of your home's landscape.
