Cancelled, one major garden renovation! The Breadwinner has added “Move Family” to the To-Do list. Instead of building my dream garden I’ve opted to give the garden a little “curb appeal.”
We may sell or maybe rent, either way the garden needs sprucing up. I had grand plans to add raised beds, stepping-stones, flower beds, increase the overall size and define a border. Not knowing if the next occupants will even want a garden I have scrapped my plans to replicate the Garden of Eden and settled for cost-effective landscape edging.
Plastic edging is rigid and unforgiving when cold, it is easiest to install on a sunny and/or warm day. I learned the sunny day lesson by watching my neighbor’s cloudy/cold day edging project
To install the edging dig a small trench ~4 inches deep and wide enough to hammer in anchors at a 45° angle.
This brand of edging sells in rolls of 60′ and 20′. I needed 74′.
After anchoring simply back fill and it’s done! My first attempt installing edging, the hardest part was keeping the kiddos occupied.
Are you impressed? This could be your garden. Would you like to live somewhere over the rainbow?
