A good quality edger can make your yard look amazing with little maintenance. The edger separates shrub areas from grass areas, keeping a barrier that does not allow grass to grow in to the shrub beds.

Types of edger

  • Aluminum edger: This is the best edger to use. It provides a thin, but stable
    barrier that sits flush with the ground and stays in the ground well.
  • Plastic edger: A higher quality is easier to bend without kinks and can be installed firmly in place. This tends to get knocked out of place by lawn mowers.
  • Concrete edger: This option is fairly durable, and provides a good base for lawnmower tires. It can break down over time, and can be overbearing in a smaller yard.
  • Paving stones: look good if maintained well. Grass does tend to grown in between the stones. This is a labor intensive and usually more expensive route to go.

Whatever material you use, always use an edger between shrub beds and your lawn.
