Edgestone : A Decorative Landscape Border
Hardscape products are used for all kinds of landscape installations such as paver patios, walkways, and retaining walls. However, most manufacturers also create a product known as “Edgestone” to compliment these area. They may also be used to define your landscaping bed edges. These manufactured concrete products come in a range of shapes, textures, and color blends that can easily complement the colors of an existing home or building they surround.
Edgestone is very functional as it helps to contain mulch or stone in landscaping beds, keeping it from washing or falling out onto hard surfaces or lawn areas. One of the great benefits of this beautiful landscape addition is its ease of installation. Approximately 50% of the stone is buried in a channel along the bed and then back-filled. Because of their irregular shape, installation is easier than installing other edging products. This also allows the edgestones to be placed around curves very easily and also to gradually lower as the ground slopes to other areas. Digging the trench for installation can be done with a trench machine or even a shovel if need be, then back-filled.
Another nice feature of edgestone is that it can be removed and replaced as needed. If there is construction, or settling replacement is as easy as digging a small trench and re-installing the units.
