Hello, I'm Steve Skinner, and today we're going to talk about garden edge solutions. So you're planting that new garden, but you need an edge to give it that definite border from surrounding landscape. There are literally hundreds of options available, but we're going to talk about just a few and probably my favorite edge is what is called the living edge. Living edges are composed of plants that sort of keep to themselves, plants such as liriope or mondo grass make great living borders. Others like dwarf day lilies are stunning when massed as an edge and gardens with taller backgrounds. if you're planting a living edge, you should establish it in the fall or if weather allows, in the wintertime. This will give the plants time to root in and it can begin filling in the edge for the following spring. There are many other border solutions that you may find around your home. Stones make an attractive edge. Old bricks stood up on their edge or in various ways can make a very effective and attractive border. Also, you may want to choose from any one of the many edge solutions at your local garden center. So those are some edge solutions that you can use. I'm Steve Skinner, and this has been a few tips on garden edging solutions.
