Classic brick garden border edging is a popular choice amongst gardeners who want low maintenance yet, stylish garden edging. Garden bricks are widely used in gardens as they can withstand anything the unpredictable British climate can throw at them and, they’re relatively inexpensive. When you are laying the bricks, push them together as close as possible to prevent turf from growing between the gaps.

Rock border edging is perfect for creating an informal relaxed garden edging. Mix and match different shapes and colours to give your garden border a relaxed appearance.

Although a rock border is extremely easy to create, it requires more maintenance than you might expect. Once the rocks are in place, watch out for lawn or weeds growing in-between the gaps which could spoil the look of your well-manicured lawn.
