Edging? Is it Important?

February 12, 2018


You’ve just finished mowing your lawn and as you stop to admire the beautiful stripes in the grass before you, you notices the edges aren’t quite as sharp as they could be. But the idea of getting out and cleaning up after another tool is a little daunting. When it comes to edging, is it important?


Hey Good Lookin’


One of the most obvious reasons to edge your lawn is the fact that it just looks good! One of the things that makes your yard attractive is the fact that it is tidy and clean. The human eye finds distinct lines and structure more pleasing than chaos or undefined spaces.


If you had a landscaper design your yard, chances are they were very precise about how and where they used lines. This is no coincidence! You can make the most of your yards design by regularly edging.


You can also help maintain that design for as long as possible by keeping it crisp and well-defined. Edging can be especially important when you are trying to create transitions between your lawn and a garden or flowerbed. As you create these separate spaces you’ll better highlight your lawn as well as your garden or flowerbed in their own respective areas.


Easier Maintenance


You may think that edging is just extra work, but in fact it is saving you work in the long run! Lawn mowers can only do so much, especially when it comes to weeds. When you have a very structured space, as you do when you are regularly edging, it is much easier to see and attack weeds. This can help you catch weed and other grass problems before they take over large areas of your lawn and garden.


Edging also helps to make other lawn care chores easier too by allowing you easier access to certain areas. For example, irrigating and fertilizing are generally easier with clearly defined spaces. With space between your lawn and other areas you won’t have to worry about chemicals or products getting in your flowerbed when they’re only supposed to be in your grass.
