In this regard, is edging necessary for landscaping?
It Protects Landscaping From Grass Roots If left unchecked, grass will grow into landscape beds and over the edges of pavement. Edging creates a root barrier that stops grass from invading. And if you keep up with regular edging it will save you time when you're trimming.
Also, how do you edge between gravel and grass?
- Pull the gravel away from the edge, using a broom rake to sweep it toward the center of the driveway or path.
- Dig a 4-inch wide trench in the grass along the lawn and gravel edge.
- Stand the edging upright in the trench, pushing it tight against the gravel side of the trench.
Likewise, how often should you edge your lawn?
If you want to do it only one time a year, which is close to the average, edge sometime in late June. By waiting until the end of June, you avoid the peak growing season–April to May–so your edging work lasts longer as your grass grows less from July to December.
How do you keep grass from growing over edging?
Add an extra physical barrier between your lawn and edging by cutting a narrow trench in front of the edging. Maintaining a soil-free space between the lawn and the flower beds prevents grass roots from spreading through the soil and underneath the edging.
