Adbri Borderstone Blocks used as garden edging
Lastly, many of the masonry manufacturers such as National, Adbri and Austral all produce smaller version of their larger blocks especially designed for garden edging or low garden beds. These can be a great option particularly if you already have a larger retaining wall installed and wish to tie your edging into the scheme. Products such as the Adbri Borderstone and Austral Bribie Edge are perfect as their colour range will match in with their larger retaining blocks and in some cases their paving range. Don’t forget, there is really no limitation when it comes to garden edging, and if you wish you can use these larger retaining wall blocks for garden edging also. Keep in mind, some blocks like the Austral Heron and Adbri Versawall will need a capping unit to finish the wall neatly, so factor that into your equations.
Once again, it is important not to forget that garden edging is not bound by rules. Anything you like that fits the shape, line and design is suitable for edging. Just remember, there is often a lot a moisture in the ground and around garden beds, so it is especially important that whatever your garden edging choice, it will stand up to the harsh, wet and often baking hot environment of the garden!
