Let's talk edging
Fall is fast approaching and I still haven't made all the decisions I need to make and planned out my landscaping going in soon. I may ask for some ideas for plants for specific niches, but right now I am stumped on edging.
Ideally, I'd like an affordable, permanent(ish) edging which effectively blocking both roots and creepers AND is mowable. I am trying to to create a huge maintenance nightmare edging everything because the reality is that I won't. :)
It's a tall order. Concrete curbing is the only material that seems to suit the bill, but *way* out of my price range. I have literally hundreds of feet to do.
I have pondered plants as edging, but I am leery. Anything robust enough to crowd out my yard mixture of violets, creeping charlie and strawberries might be a problem before long. (And I do have a little grass, otherwise I'd never have to mow.) I have some sort of dwarf mondo grass growing in my yard and doing well in both the full bore sun southern exposure and also on the northern side which is mostly shade. I don't really care if it takes over the yard but I'd rather not have it become a weed in the landscape beds.
Any other thoughts for edging, plants or otherwise?
