Edging in garden using paving blocks

Edging in garden using paving blocks

Never underestimate the importance of separating flower beds from lawn areas. Edging in garden can be done using various materials.


Most recommended material by us for edging in garden will be paving block ( concrete paving block ) Be it an edging block in red, brindle or charcoal colour. These are the colour options.

Cheaper of course would be materials like log rolls - various designs. We don't recommend these. Will not last long and of course you still need a strimmer to cut the grass along this edge.

Most expensive one is of course natural stone. Comes in different shapes, colours, sizes and prices... Very good choice if your budget allows for it.


Ok.. so without further ado please see for yourself and let us know what you think.

Turfing gardens in Reading. We use top quality turf supplied by Warfield Turf services.

We either use:

  • a premium turf which has superior appearance.
  • or RTF turf which has some other benefits to it like; drought resistance, ability to withstand being waterlogged, better shade tolerance, also self repairing feature due to its rhizomatous growth

Before laying turf we prepare the ground in the best possible way. We rotovate, level, incorporate organic matter into existing soil to support new laid turf.
