All homeowners love their gardens and their yards as these outdoor spaces provide a serene environment for some downtime, family bonding, holding a barbecue party or doing garden work amongst other activities.
Not only does the outdoors offer extra space but also boosts the aesthetics of your home, making it a beautiful haven to come home to after the hustle and bustle of urban life. Thus, you should always put extra effort into making the garden clean, neat, and green. One unique way of maintaining a great look on your outdoors is through hard landscaping like kerbing, paving walkways, building patios and other improvements that will provide a stylish outlook with beautiful design.
Ways of Revamping Your Garden Outlook
Here are some great tips for creating a functional garden that is not only beautiful but sets the tone of your home as a tranquil and haven.
Highlight Natures Beauty
Concrete garden edging brings a touch of nature in our gardens, highlighting beauties such as flowers, rocks, shrubs, and trees. Garden edging is a great way to keep things in order as kerbing creates boundaries by separating rocks from the grass layout, keeping the garden soil in one place and ultimately, creating a neat area.
Pave the Way
Kerbing your driveways, paving the footpaths and fencing the garden are great ways to protect the softer elements of your garden, such as shrubs, flower and flowers as well, making it easier to navigate your way without worrying about stepping on the flowers or other plantations.
Create Hues and Tones
You can choose a timber or brick edging of different colours and contours to add some personal touch and character to your outdoors.
Some of the personalised options to choose from include:
(i) Colour – Select a colour to match the exterior look of your house or the theme of your garden. Usually, the base colour of the cement/timber or brick determines the colour range of the final landscape. With different mixtures, you can have the desired colour for your outdoor scene.
(ii) Design flexibility – Garden edging is as versatile as it is unique. You can have the kerbing done in different shapes, curves turns, and form. Choose a design that best compliments your landscape.
(iii) Size – Choose from different widths and heights, depending on your surroundings. You might want to choose high fencing if you are planning to block soil from the grass or a raised deck for building patio or barbecue space or a ground-level kerbing to create pathway markings.
Why Hard Landscaping Shouldn’t be an After-thought
As you enjoy this variety of choices, there are significant benefits that come with hard landscaping improvement and maintenance.
Cost is a significant benefit. Kerbing, for example, is a permanent solution to garden edging. You do not have to worry about gardening tools, maintenance services, and taking time off of your busy schedule to trim and cut in your yard, all you need to do is a simple mowing.
Some landscape improvements like garden wall construction, dry stone walling, decking and concrete kerbing last longer than any other soft landscape edging solution. In fact, repairs are only required after a few years as the concrete/ bricks or stones can withstand all seasons and fluctuating weather conditions.
In conclusion, garden edging when done right can create more value and beautify your home. The trick, of course, is to have it professionally done and to stay on top of maintenance.
