One of the ideas of lawn edging is by raising your garden bed.
Beautifully raised garden beds that are made from prefab kits may look like a million dollars. I mean, having an idea of raising a garden bed will make you think that you initially need a landscaper to have that neat look. But here in Lawn Care Pueblo Colorado, we always come up with ideas that has the potential to save money and provide value at the same time.
With a little bit of creativity, you can raise a vegetable garden bed using inexpensive, or free, materials. Below are some of the things that you can use to raise your vegetable garden bed.
Not only do logs provide support to raising your vegetable bed, it will also give it a rustic barn look on it. Fallen logs or newly cut wood can be used to make an appealing vegetable garden bed. Cut the logs to the desired length and secure them to the soil to form the borders of your vegetable bed. Then fill it with soil.
Rock and stone
Using rocks and stone will make the borders of your raised vegetable garden bed look natural. The key is to look for rocks that are similar in size then line them up on the perimeter of the bed. To make it look more natural, take the time to seat the bottom of the rocks on the soil. Fill in the stone with soil around its base first to secure them in place then fill the remainder of the vegetable garden bed with soil
You can find these from old pieces of wood or lumber left over from construction projects. There is no standard size for a raised bed. But experts say it would be best to keep the width of the raised vegetable bed up to 4 feet or less so that plants can be accessed easily. This helps you reach the center of the vegetable garden bed with ease from both sides. Cut the wood to your desired size and build a rough box. Then place it in a sunny location and fill it with soil. Remember to line the bottom with landscape fabric or canvas to create a weed barrier
Try to look for any unused wooden crates from your attic. You can also find them on yard sales and flea markets. Wooden crates are usually small. Try to combine several sizes and shapes to create a rustic barn look. Then use them as is by putting them in a sunny location and filling it with soil, or carefully remove the bottoms to expose the soil underneath.
