How to make a border for the garden

Undoubtedly, one of the most practical decorative elements in the garden is borders, which allow you to separate different areas and even delimit a path. The most normal thing is that they are made based on plants and shrubs to complement the trees and flowers that are already in the garden.

In other words, the border consists of the creation of a low-height corridor or strip, which is made based on natural elements, although artificial elements, such as stone or terracotta, can also be used. In addition to separating the garden areas and preventing soil, stones, and roots from mixing, these delimiters can also provide sustenance to the terrain of a certain height.

If you want to create a border with plants and flowers, you will have to decide if you want it to be made up of specimens of the same type or if you want to mix different varieties. In the first case, the border will be easier to maintain and shape. On the contrary, with the mixed border, more attractive and beautiful results can be achieved, although it costs more to maintain and shape.

On the other hand, it is important to avoid plants that reach a lot of height or that take up a lot of space, since they can invade the path or other plants, giving a feeling of overwhelming.

Embroidery with artificial elements

You can also make a border for the garden with elements such as stone or terracotta. All you have to do is place them in the areas you want to delimit and place the plants inside. Clay and metal nets can also be useful for edging.

We want to make a special mention of terracotta, whose warm color and resistance make it a very practical and durable element. To border with terracotta, you can use small slabs or build planters, using slabs of different sizes to create a flat boundary of a garden area.
