Garden border fencing need difficult to cut and make clear separation between garden and lawn edge. Prior to installation, however, you must consider materials to use and how to use them. These materials should be attractive, functional and durable.
Choose treated or untreated wood to edge of garden if you want an earthy look to your garden. Untreated wood is completely natural, but decays over time. Treated wood protects wood from rotting agents, such as fungi, but contains chromate copper arsenate. Small amounts of these chemicals can leach into soil, affecting all crop production you may have.
Metal strip garden border fencing is almost invisible. To install them, bury leaves of steel or aluminum border about 4 inches into ground with 1/2 inch of top protruding from ground. These boundaries are simplest to install than thin leaves bend easily around corners. Metal borders provide subtlety and effective in separating from other garden landscape elements.
Use cobblestones when you have flowers or other plants that extends to garden border fencing. Pavers come in a variety of colors and materials, including brick and concrete. They also come in a variety of ways. This material does not bend around corners as easily as metal and should make subtle changes rather than tight corners.
