Although the typical property manager or resident
may not realize just why a Crabapple landscape looks so great, ourcrisp edging of lawns, paths, gardens and flower beds plays
a big role in maintaining the desirable tailoredlook. One method of edging is Trench Edging or Air Root Pruning. Another edging option we recommend is mechanical metal edging.
provides a lasting landscape edge for commercial and residential projects, ideal because of its strength, durability and flexibility. The steel edge that definesthe interface between landscape surfaces helps in mowing and creates a well-groomed, well-defined look along the borders.
