How to Edge Perfect Curves in a Flower Bed

Edging Garden Curves - by Grace + Gumption

A neatly edged garden bed can make a lawn look crisp and pristine. Edging a garden is relatively painless but creating perfect corners and curves can become troublesome. Below I’ve provided a few simple steps to achieve perfect curves in your garden beds.

Supplies you’ll need include:
– 2 steel garden stakes (similar here)
– twine or string
– scissors
half moon edger

1.) Install your first stake at the base of the flower bed.

To create a quarter circle curve, identify the base point of your garden bed and hammer in your your first stake at this location. Then using your twine or string, tie one end to the top of your stake.

2.) Tie the other end of your string to your second stake.

Insert your second stake where you would like to begin your curve as shown below.

Then using the same string that is already attached to stake #1, tie the other end of your string to stake #2 and cut off any extra using scissors.

3.) Trace your curve.

Using stake #2, begin dragging it through the grass in a circular motion, leaving  an indentation that you will use as a template to make a clean and crisp edge.

4.) Begin digging your edge.

Now that you have marked a nice curved line, begin digging your edge with a half moon edger. Just follow along your template until you’ve reached the end of your curve.
