You have probably noticed how much the frame can influence the effect of an image on the observer. Simple wooden strips hardly distract from the representation, gold-plated or silver frames make the painting look even more precious and colored, brightly colored borders can direct the mood of the picture in a very specific direction.
Transferred to the garden, the numerous combinations of flowers and plants in the beds represent the noble painting, which can appear more enchanting and imposing with a well-fitting border. At the same time, the edging ensures a harmonious transition between the bed and the rest of the garden. So that you can imagine it better, call a picture frame in front of your eyes that mediates between the picture on the wall and the rest of the apartment. The same is true for the garden. We suggest you some nice ideas!
If you want to opt for a long-lasting, easy-care edging for the beds in the garden, then you are well advised with edging stones. Because, once you lay them, they accompany the flow of the bed in an almost indestructible way. Stone blocks are a successful example of the timelessness of such a border in the garden. Furthermore, clinker bricks enable a variety of placement. For example, if you string them together and sunk two-thirds into the ground, you quickly have attractive, varied zigzag edges in the garden. If you lay it with its long, narrow side up, you get the impression of a modern treadmill.
There are special edging systems on the market, such as iron borders and stone elements, which consist of artistically crafted individual elements. However, one should expect that they will attract the viewer’s attention too much and thereby distract from the plants and flowers in the bed.
Another option, which is by no means inferior to the iron and stone edging in terms of longevity, is the plants themselves. The evergreen boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) is a good example of this. It grows slowly and can be easily cut into various shapes. This makes it an essential frame for flower beds in the garden. Sub-shrubs, medicinal herbs (Santolina), lavender and rue (Ruta graveolens) can also be easily stylized with the garden coulter. But you absolutely need a sunny place.
The rosemary can also serve the purpose of edging in the garden, as well as some perennial plants such as lady’s mantle (Alchemilla) or low bluebells (Campanula). They spread coquettishly in the path and the lawn and simply make the borders between picture and frame disappear.
Just one last piece of advice: when choosing the plant species for delimiting the beds, make sure that the colors of the flowers and leaves harmonize well with the border and the bedding.
