Hi, this is Yolanda Vanveen and in this segment, we're going to talk about garden edging ideas. Now when you're designing your garden, there's a lot of tricks that help and first of all, whenever I'm designing a garden area or really putting together a garden spot, the easiest way to do that is to take a hose and make a garden area or garden bed and design your garden bed with the hose because it's not permanent and you can change it. It's much more beautiful to have a kidney shape or a rounded bed than to have straight beds as well and you can really get that look with a hose easily. Unless you lay down your area, then you can put your border and you can use any type of rocks and they're all beautiful. You can use river rocks of all shapes and sizes. You can use wood as a border or you can use bricks as a border. You can use vinyl siding as a border, there's so many different options, but I like to use natural materials and rocks last the longest. So whether using bricks or even types of river rock, they're usually the best option and they will last the longest and then that way you can have your flower beds and you can change 'em in or make 'em longer, very easy and with little hassle and you can enjoy your garden bed for many years.
