Wondering what types of concrete garden edging there are?
Concrete edging is a great way to add interest to any garden. It’s visually striking and can help to cut down the time it takes to maintain your garden. It’s a fantastic investment as it keeps your garden looking neat and tidy without having to do much at all. Whether you’re creating a whole new landscape or just adding to your already-existing garden, concrete edging will add something special to your garden.
While some people might opt for timber or brick edging, this choice is short sighted since this type of edging requires constant maintenance and will often rot or disintegrate over a few years. Concrete edging is by far a superior investment, with little to no need for maintenance and a fantastic sleek finish that will last you a lifetime.
Another benefit of concrete edging is the wide variety of choice it has to offer. No matter what you have in mind or the type of garden you have, there will be a type of concrete edging to suit.
Types of Concrete Edging
Different Edging Profiles
There are two different edging profiles to choose from when getting concrete edging: sloping and border. A sloping profile provides a more subtle edging that seamlessly blends your garden bed into your lawn while still keeping the edge sharp and tidy. A border profile provides a bolder statement edge that is much more noticeable, strongly dividing your lawn from your garden bed.
Different Edging Patterns
Everlast Services can provide a wide variety of concrete edging patterns to suit any landscape. Whether you want a smooth pour or a more textured concrete, we can provide. If you’re having trouble choosing, our professional landscapers can help you decide which type of concrete edging will best enhance the features of your garden.
Different Edging Colours
One of the great things about concrete is that we can mix it to be almost any colour you desire. Whether you want a warm terracotta coloured edging or a cool French grey, we can create just about any hue. If you already have garden edging and are wanting to extend it or add more to your landscape, we can even mix up a colour that will match you already-existing concrete edging so that the new concrete blends seamlessly with the old.
Pros and Cons of Concrete Garden Edging
As with anything, there are pros and cons to choosing concrete for your garden edging.
Concrete is characterised by its durability and, unlike other types of garden edging, won’t rot, warp or separate over time, even in the hottest or coldest climates. Because of this, you also don’t have to worry about maintaining it – it will last for years and years even if you completely neglect it. And it will probably look just as good as the day it was poured as well.
Pros: It’s an In and Out Job
Installing concrete edging is generally a very quick and easy job. Instead of being disrupted by contractors for weeks on end, garden concrete edging usually only takes less than a day. What’s more, at Everlast Services we take care of everything, from planning, to laying, to cleaning up. So all you have to do is sit back and relax while we do all the work.
In this day and age of instant gratification, concrete edging is perfect.
Cons: The Price
One of the few negatives is that concrete edging is the pricier garden edging option but trust us when we say it’s worth the investment and that over time it will pay for itself. Because you don’t have to worry about maintaining or even replacing it in the future as you would with wood and brick edging, concrete edging is usually a lot cheaper in the long run.
That being said, there are still more affordable options when it comes to concrete edging. For example, pre-cast concrete can help you save a lot of money. At Everlast Services we also pride ourselves on providing work of the highest quality at an affordable price. When we lay your concrete edging, it’s with the intention that it will last you a lifetime.
