Borders help define space. This helps us appreciate the space we have and a sense of order. On the simple side, edging (a border in the ground) can keep planting beds and lawn separated. When we include screening (vertical visual borders), it gives the viewer a sense of enveloped peace.
For edging, some materials available are:
- concrete pavers
- commercial grade vinyl
Screening can take on many forms: plantings or hedges, fences of various materials, berms or walls. Depending on your needs, they can be a visual reminder of separation, or they can be fully defined. The choice is yours.
