Benefits of Brick Edging

In addition to creating a clean, appealing border, the exposed portion of the brick stops mulch and soil from washing out of the garden. The brick also helps to protect delicate plants from potential damage caused by mowing and edging. Brick edging on pathways and patios can deter visitors from stepping off onto the lawn, and brick can draw attention to a focal point in the landscape design, such as a water feature. In addition, brick is constructed for longevity, and if properly installed by a professional, it's likely to last for the lifetime of the house.

Cost Considerations of Brick Edging Installation

Brick is one of the cheapest edging materials available to homeowners, but costs still vary depending on what it's made from and its style. Lower grades of brick made from plastic or clay can keep the cost of a project down, while bricks made from recycled materials or those with decorative edges can increase project costs. Additional cost considerations include linear footage of the project and materials such as gravel or cement that are needed to keep the brick securely in place.

When to Hire a Professional

The installation of brick edging can be more complicated and labor-intensive than it appears. It often requires tools that most homeowners don't own. A contractor or landscaper can ultimately prove to be more cost-effective for the project. Professionals have the proper equipment and skills to efficiently install edging around landscape features, saving time and the cost of equipment rental.
