In 2020, many people found that time spent nurturing and creating their own outdoor spaces became not only a hobby, but also brought a deeply rewarding sense of accomplishment. HI Now host Kainoa Carlson is with Ron Souza from City Mill Hawaii Kai to learn how easy it can be to redesign an outdoor space using landscaping edging.
“Edging can definitely kick up your garden or yard design a notch or two, but there’s actually a bunch of practical reasons to use edging,” Souza explains. “Besides defining the space between, say your flower bed and the lawn, it can help create a walkway, hold your mulch or topsoil in place and even help prevent your lawnmower from damaging your plants.”
Depending on what you’re trying to accomplish in your outdoor space, you’ll end up using different types of products. If you’re using edging for practical reasons like holding mulch or topsoil in place, or even creating a separate space, Souza says scalloped bricks are great.
“You can see how heavy they are, and the weight helps keep them in place as well as prevent the soil from spilling over into the adjoining space,” he explains. “Brick is a great long-term material. If you are looking for edging that’s more for appearance, you can use the plastic fence style, or there are low profile ones you bury in the ground.”
