Melinda’s Garden Moment: Up To The Edge

Build A Beautiful Edge To Your Garden With Recycled Supplies


Dress up your garden beds, keep plants in bounds, and curb weeds from infiltrating the garden with fun and attractive edging.

Lids of pots and pans purchased at various thrift shops and yard sales provide a unique boundary for this garden bed.

These old garden bench ends found a second life in this garden.
Inverted blue wine bottles invite you down this path. They create a physical edge for the garden and contrast nicely with the yellow flowering sedum.
The headboard of an old junior bed is a focal point in this garden and support for the surrounding tall perennials.
Parts of an old tractor mark the edge of this garden while preserving a bit of history.
Old chairs are a popular planter, but how about converting one or more into a support for tall plants within or at the edge of a garden bed.

And don’t discard that old bowling ball. Collect several from friends to create a fun garden edge.
