A garden border is a decorative edge around your flower bed. It can be made of stone, brick or even plastic edging. The most common type used in the U.S., however, is wood and it’s usually pressure treated to resist rot and insect damage (see below).

Garden Border: Frequently asked questions

What types of Garden Border are there and what determines a good product?

There are many types of Garden Borders, including herb garden borders, flower border edging ideas and vegetable garden borders.

The first thing to consider is the shape of your garden. A border can be rectangular, square or even triangular in shape and you should choose plants that will fit into these shapes easily. You also need to think about how much space you have available for a border as well as what style it needs to complement – formal, informal or naturalistic? If you are planting an ornamental bed then there are many different styles from which to choose such as cottage gardens with their herbaceous borders full of flowers like lavender (Lavandula angustifolia), rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) and thyme (Thymus vulgaris). There’s no reason why they shouldn’t include vegetables too though. For example try growing French marigolds (Tagetes patula) among your carrots; not only do they look good but the carrot fly won’t lay eggs on them so pests aren’t attracted either.

Who should use a Garden Border?

Garden Borders are great for people who want to grow vegetables and herbs, but don’t have a lot of space. They can be used in the front yard or backyard as well as on balconies and patios.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Garden Border?

The best Garden Borders will be able to provide you with the features that you need. You should look for a product that is durable and one that can withstand any kind of weather conditions such as rain, snow or sun. It should also have an attractive design so it looks great in your garden area.

The weight of a Garden Border is an important factor to consider. You should also compare the materials and assembly quality of a Garden Border. Take all specifications into consideration before choosing the best model for you.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Garden Border?


The garden border is a great way to add color and texture to your yard. It can also be used as an accent piece, or even as a focal point in the landscape design of your home.


The disadvantages of a garden border are that it is not as sturdy and permanent as other types of borders. It can be easily moved or removed if you decide to change the layout of your yard, but this also means that they do not last forever like some more permanent options. They may need to be replaced every few years depending on how much wear and tear they have endured from weathering or pests such as deer eating them down over time.
