Edging Stones - The Perfect Finish For Any Garden

Category: Landscaping

Now is the time of year to be planning your garden for the warm weather ahead. If you’re looking for garden ideas, the Innes Building and Timber blog is the place to be. Today we want to talk about edging stones. If you’re looking out your window at a virtual jungle, you might think that you’re a long way from needing edging stones, but getting these things done while the weather is good and the evenings are getting longer is a great idea.

Why edging stones are a great idea

Edging stones are a fabulous addition to any garden, not just because they look great, but because they’re highly practical too. They are a fabulous, instant way to add contrast and interest to your garden and, when planned and fitted in the right way will help you avoid hours and hours of cutting lawn edges.

Edging stones can also be used to create different spaces in your garden, which is a really clever way to get maximum value from your garden, no matter how big or small it is.

Create ‘rooms’ in your garden

You can use edging stones to create ‘rooms’ in your garden by planning out spaces for different activities and identifying them with edging and specific furnishings or plants and accessories. 

For example, if you have a long, narrow lawn, you could separate it into blocks by using edging stones. Once you’ve done that you can define the purpose of each block by adding your ‘room’ elements. You might have the kids swing or trampoline in one block, a small kitchen garden in another, soft seats in one and a table in the other.

When you plan and lay out your garden this way, you get maximum impact from the space you’ve got and your friends and neighbours will be amazed at what you’ve been able to achieve.

A huge choice available

As you can see here, at IBT we have a huge range of kerbs and edgings in stock so you can choose the style that suits your plans best.You can choose from natural ochre and red colours as well as greys, whites and off-whites. There’s also a choice of styles from highly modern to traditional. What this means is that you can create a clean, designer look in your garden or you can go more country cottage – it’s entirely up to you.

Now is the right time to add kerbing and edging

Like most things garden related, the spring and early summer months are the perfect time to plan your kerbs and edging. The weather’s reasonably dry at the moment and the ground shouldn’t be too hard, so if you’ve got plans, now’s the time to put them into action. You know you won’t regret it when the summer comes and you can kick back and enjoy the fruits of your labour.
