Edging my Garden
Has anyone ever tried to, instead of the common garden edging (plastics, stone, rocks, gravel, cement) just dig a little trench (below the grass rootline) around the edge to help keep the grass out of the garden? I can't find anywhere what this type of edging is called and don't know how to research it. I find that the gardens look so unfinished, and eventually the plastic edging doesn't even look good. The grass seems to grow over it anyway eventually. I think that I saw this type of edging at a bed and breakfast sometime ago and heard that it was done in the Victorian times. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
