Plastics are often used to cover up damage caused by soil erosion, but some experts are now questioning the effectiveness of these materials as landscape edgers.
The United States Geological Survey recently surveyed 2,200 homeowners in North Carolina and found that the majority (61%) of homeowners surveyed used plastic to cover turf, with most homeowners choosing plastic over hardwood, brick, or cement.
However, some homeowners reported using plastic to add protection to their landscape.
One homeowner, John, told the survey team that he has found that a plastic landscape edger helps reduce the likelihood of soil erosion.
John told the group that, in addition to helping protect the soil, the plastic adds texture and keeps the landscape in place.
John said that the material is easily cleaned and reused, and that it can be applied to almost any surface, from the tops of trees to the ground.
When John was told about the survey results, he was more than a little disappointed.
I have used plastic for a long time, and I am disappointed to see it not working.
It’s just not good for landscape edges.
John said that he does not want to have a problem with the environment as long as he uses a landscape edgemarting.
When he did that, the landscape looked amazing, with plants sprouting and birds singing.
I think I will have to use the plastic to make the plant beds, he said.
John was one of several homeowners to say that they would be willing to purchase plastic landscape products in the future.
Plastic landscape products are currently available from home improvement stores, but they are typically too expensive to buy at a store.
One of the many benefits of using plastic landscape design, says Michael C. Osterberg, a landscape designer in Fort Wayne, Indiana, is that it is much easier to reuse.
Oterberg says that a landscape design that includes both softwood and hardwood surfaces will provide a more attractive appearance and provide a natural look to a landscape.
Osterberg said that softwood can be used to create a very natural landscape.
Softwood is more flexible and durable than hardwood and will last longer.
Softwoods are also easier to remove than hardwoods.
Softwares are also cheaper, Oterber says, making them a good choice for homeowners who are not particularly interested in buying new products.
For Oterburg, the advantage of plastic landscape designs over hardwoods is that they are easier to repair.
Oberberg said it is easier to find softwoods that are available to repair than hardwares that are not.
For instance, Osterburg said, if he had an issue with a hardwood edging that was damaged in a storm, he could repair it with a softwood edgemarking.
Oterberg said the same applies to hardwood products.
Soft woods can be easily repaired, he added, but hardwires will take longer to repair and are more expensive.
When it comes to choosing the right materials for your landscape, Oesterberg recommends hardwoods because they are much easier for homeowners to work with.
Soft wood is more forgiving of soil conditions and can be worked with on a regular basis, Oberburg said.
Softwoods and hardwoods are both popular choices for homeowners, especially those who are looking for a natural landscape that does not require an extensive remodeling.
Olerberg said hardwoods will not be a big problem for homeowners that do not have extensive remodels, but softwoods will make a good base for a larger remodel.
The bottom line is that plastic landscape and softwood designs are popular and will provide the same look and feel to a homeowner’s yard.
They can also be used as a natural foundation for any kind of project.
