Helpful Information

How many edgers will you need for your yard? Use edging to form the border of a patio or walkway, or to retain soil for a flower bed. Measure the perimeter, rounding up to the nearest foot. If a patio abuts the house, you may or may not want to put edging there.

A few tips: If you use 4x4s, landscaping timbers, or strip edging (either plastic or metal), figuring how many you need is simple, since these come in 6-foot sections, or longer. If you choose 4" X 12" edger block, you need one block per foot of running perimeter.
