Creative Garden Edging

Keeping plants in bounds and upright can be challenging and often unsightly.  Get creative and put discards and antiques to work for you in the garden.

Old chairs are 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 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.

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