Project: Steel pipe garden edging

You have probably seen my photos and videos of our wine bottle garden edging project. This photo shows a similar approach using an entirely different material. I am not sure where you would source enough of this pipe cheaply, but obviously this person did.

One issue with using unique items for your garden edging is that their small diameter means you need A LOT of them. The wine bottles are probably 4″-5″ in diameter but that is still much smaller than a brick, a stone or using some bender-board edging. This also means it takes more time to install, as you have to lay each piece separately.

I like that the gardener filled each pipe with soil and stones and then planted small succulents. I think this is a great use of otherwise wasted space in the edging.

Still, I really like the look of our wine bottles and these steel pipes. Click through on this Pinterest link for more garden photos and ideas from the original blog.

    I’d try looking at your local Restore or similar store for inexpensive pipe and other materials.

    Love the pipes. I have stove pipe planter . Sprayed it copper and a 10 inch clay pot fits perfectly in it. They have smaller ones also. Really neat for emphasizing a curve in your bed
