We love the look of an artificial curved lawn edging alongside sweeping flower beds and borders. Plants and shrubs enhance the authenticity of your grass and introduce additional colours and scents into your garden.
A great way to give your borders a soft finish is to create a curved edge that dips in and out of the lawn. This creates extra depth in your flowerbeds, as well as adding visual interest when considering the view from a distance.
This striking garden look can be achieved with an artificial lawn as well as natural one by using metal edging.
Types of Lawn Edging
We use tanalised timber edging as standard, as it is the best fit for the majority of gardens. Timber edging will give you a straight edge, so it is ideal for creating modern, angled shapes.
Metal edging, unlike timber, can be manipulated into the desired shape making it perfect for creating sleek curves. Our metal edging is made from aluminium so it won’t rust, and is installed with stakes to keep it in place.
Cement haunching helps to achieve a close finish up against patios and brickwork. The object is to try and limit the gap between the grass and the existing surface, but this can be tricky if you are using timber and the brick work is uneven. Cement makes it possible to attach the grass right up to the edge of the brickwork, giving a very neat finish.
Rubber edging is used most often for safety reasons as it provides a small incline between two surfaces of different heights, reducing the chance of tripping. A common place to use this would be if you are installing on top of an existing hard flat surface.
