Creating the Best Border for Your Grass Sod

Hank Kerfoot - Thursday, March 27, 2014

Paths, driveways, and patio slabs are all common borders for grass sod lawns.

Creating the Best Border for Your Grass SodWhen you are designing your new lawn, you have to consider all the aspects of landscaping that you might want to include at a later date. If you have ambitions down the road of incorporating a garden bed or a pathway, it’s a good idea to plan ahead for these developments.

Analyze the Site

Get familiar with the space you want to develop and how you want to facilitate foot traffic through the area. If you want to border certain parts of the yard, you’ll need to plan ahead and cut the sod into different shapes prior to laying any grass down.

Articulate Your Budget

Some border materials will be more expensive than others. Concrete and wood are popular ground borders, but there are other options depending on what you want to landscape. Allocate enough money for whatever material you want and measure out the quantity for your border, as it will fit around your grass sod.

Get Creative

Borders give you the opportunity to add dimension and depth to any lawn space. Sod grass doesn’t have to conform to any particular shape, and can be enhanced with borders, layering, and other landscaping techniques.
