I mean that on the odd occasion I want to alter a shape or reduce lawn edging I can and do. My edging is a concrete mix and a chisel is enough to remove pieces and I replace.
don't get me wrong.....I pretty much waited until I was sure of my design and area and 95 % remains intact. It is more of an odd tinkering...for "perfection" ( ) .......and the edging is permanent and will never deteriorate or fail me.
my edging is 6" to 8" wide and plants associate well with it.
No edging ...plastic, aluminium, wood or even bricks ....seems appropriate to me.
Never regretted the concrete edging.
there will be a new border in the back garden this winter.....the edging will go in next winter when I have assessed shape and size
maintenance too, by the way, is easy. No grass roots encroaching, no sharp edges and an edge to stand on
