Before choosing a design and material, you should have an idea of what the border is going to be used for. Meaning that you should ask yourself if this landscaping is just for aesthetics, or for privacy, etc.

Once you have decided what the purpose of this landscaping is, it will be easier to choose the best material for the job.

The Top Materials for Your Property Line Landscaping

Here are some of our top suggestions for bordering your landscaping.

If you are looking for something that looks good and is completely natural, fast-growing shrubs are a great option.

We would personally recommend evergreen shrubs, as they can be planted at a larger size and they grow quickly. Also, depending on your location and climate, there are some fast-growing flowering shrubs that could work well too.

For those of you that like the more uniform look of a fence but still want something natural, hedges are ideal for a property line. Also, they are typically thick enough to provide some additional privacy and security as well.

One thing to note about choosing hedges for your property line is that they will need to be regularly maintained – otherwise they will look messy and disheveled. You will either need to use your own tools (like a cordless hedge trimmer) or hire a professional landscaper to help you out.

If you are looking for stronger security, you may want to consider building a real fence instead. There are many different options for fencing materials, so no matter what look or purpose you are going for with the border, a man-made fence can be an excellent option.

Ornamental Grass

Last but not least, ornamental grass can be a great choice for your property line. However, it is not the best option if you are looking for something to provide additional security or privacy.

Depending on the local climate and the grass that you choose, they can provide a variety of colors, textures, and even something living for your winter landscape.
