Clean Edges and Mulching Flower Beds | Landscaping Renovation: Phase 2

Clean Edges and Mulching Flower Beds | Landscaping Renovation: Phase 2

Edging and mulching our garden beds is the final step in our landscaping renovation. Here I put a brand new live edge, also known as a natural edge, throughout our entire flower beds. This is a lot of work but the transformation is fantastic. Nothing makes the lawn and landscaping pop like fresh black mulch.

    Looks nice, but in the tree mulch area I may have seen signs of future tree girdling. Might want to check out the roots that looked like they were starting to wrap. Not sure though, it went by pretty fast.

    AMAZING JOB!!!!!

  3. Kirk Peri on June 20, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Great job! Looks awesome

  4. Robert Faz on June 20, 2021 at 1:25 am

    How long does the sharp edge last? How do you maintain it?

  5. Ricky Salgado on June 20, 2021 at 1:27 am

    Love the Mary statue

  6. dylisa 2020 on June 20, 2021 at 1:29 am

    Did you give up on the hart tools only saw the video of the mower what about the trimmer and blower

  7. Nick N on June 20, 2021 at 1:34 am

    It IS a ton of work and you guys did a great job!

  8. Bryan Felver on June 20, 2021 at 1:34 am

    Looks great i would of cut the roots out around the one tree.

  9. SaZoN GoYa on June 20, 2021 at 1:35 am

    Why no weed barrier

  10. Morals208 on June 20, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Love the Blessed Mother statue ❤️❤️

    Lunchtime? You need beer time!!! 🍺 you got to stay hydrated!

  12. Clayton Shilling on June 20, 2021 at 1:37 am

    I’m in Texas and hardly see this. What keeps the mulch from getting into the grass when weedeating

  13. Twiggered on June 20, 2021 at 1:37 am

    This was a 1 man job? Holy hell I do this for a living and don’t think I would have talent this on as a 1 man job, I give you props

  14. Melvin Turner on June 20, 2021 at 1:39 am

    I would have trim bushes before I laid fresh mulch. Also u could have tried to leave some space against the house with the mulch for termite purposely. Mulch spreaded then want be to effect against stopping weeds from growing

  15. Jay Montgomery on June 20, 2021 at 1:40 am

    I love these clean edges and your technique. I’d like to get this look, but I wonder if it works with my yard. I have a sloped front yard going down from the street with some mulched beds against my house. Will these deep trenched edges make an unwanted water path when heavy rains come? I’m dealing with some erosion control by my front door walkway.

  16. mmcclain100 on June 20, 2021 at 1:40 am

    A ton of work includes— not including a weed barrier(- single 12’x100 roll could finish 1/3 of the job), nor clarifying to add mulch after seasons or enough mulch to cover top roots. Great lines along the barrier 👍🏼

  17. Bill Kerry on June 20, 2021 at 1:41 am

    Nicely done. Proper spading with shovel and debris removal. Implement Snapshot for early weed prevention prior to mulch install.

  18. B DOT on June 20, 2021 at 1:43 am

    I love the live edge but man if you would co to ur the big rocks 🪨 like u have on the corner around all of the edge. Whooo would that be 👍🏻 nice

  19. JV83010 on June 20, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Ave María 🙏

  20. Optics on June 20, 2021 at 1:45 am

    is that the 4 or 7 cu cart?

  21. Daisy Deleon on June 20, 2021 at 1:49 am

    I love it! looks beautiful. Do you know what exactly that mulch is called?

  22. Negrasska on June 20, 2021 at 1:49 am

    what a difference. it looked great before but definitely looks better with the mulch. sitting here thinking about how much i hate mulch except for right when you put it down.

  23. Scuba Steve on June 20, 2021 at 1:50 am

    Lord forgive me! I liked his video and it is at 666 likes. I hope everyone has a blessed day!

  24. Aaron wiley on June 20, 2021 at 1:51 am

    Great work and vid

  25. MusselmanMedia on June 20, 2021 at 1:51 am

    this was so sick bro

  26. Damian Pascual on June 20, 2021 at 1:56 am

    The dirt that you remove do you just even it out with the dirt that is their already or do you put it in a bag to throw it somewhere else

  27. rgarri6396 on June 20, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Wouldn’t it be easier to have your wife do it and you watch?

  28. Bahiana on June 20, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Looks beautiful!! Should have added rocks around the edges….

  29. patrick carter Carter on June 20, 2021 at 1:58 am

    How do you control weeds with no barrier? Or is a barrier needed

  30. Keith Hodge on June 20, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Question for anyone that does natural edging, is there a water issue? It sitting in that edge & no where to go. Just want to make sure the wAter doesn’t go back towards the house

  31. Krista Carroll Music on June 20, 2021 at 2:03 am

    Hey! What kind of black mulch was used here? My husband and I are moving into a rental home and we’re updating the landscape and want to go with black!

  32. Michael Singletary on June 20, 2021 at 2:03 am

    Amazing job on the edge work. What type black mulch did you use? Looking to a good mulch thats organic that doesn’t strip nitrogen from the soil.

  33. Jeffrey Yeater on June 20, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Looks much nicer . great job .

  34. Dad_who_mows_best on June 20, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Love me some live edges!

  35. matthew stover on June 20, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Very nice contrast with the mulch. Beautiful sharp edges. Looks clean.

  36. Emile Mosley on June 20, 2021 at 2:05 am

    Great job.

  37. johan 1221 on June 20, 2021 at 2:06 am

    Is the mulch still looking dark black or has it faded? if it fades you might want to look at getting a rich black top soil.

  38. Carson Stevenson on June 20, 2021 at 2:07 am

    Shoooosh

  39. Trim That Weed - Your Gardening Resource on June 20, 2021 at 2:09 am

    Wow, those are some great edges. Looks so much better now.

  40. Donald Jeune on June 20, 2021 at 2:09 am

    How much of the top soil do you remove before adding the mulch? (Approximately in inches)

  41. Lois Whitley on June 20, 2021 at 2:09 am

    What are your thoughts on landscape fabric before laying the mulch?

  42. Michael Gergovich on June 20, 2021 at 2:10 am

    How do you like having the live edge verse the pavers edge?

  43. The Lawn Shark on June 20, 2021 at 2:11 am

    Live edges are the best! Looking good!

  44. ELMC APP on June 20, 2021 at 2:13 am

    now how do we mower it and keep the grass out the mulch

  45. Peewees Lawn Care on June 20, 2021 at 2:14 am

    Great video buddy really informative

  46. Faith is Obedience on June 20, 2021 at 2:15 am

    I have a question that stumps me over and over:) How do you mow or weed eat around your mulched beds without getting grass clippings in them. Thank you in advance

  47. Jayme The Accountant Reinisch on June 20, 2021 at 2:16 am

    Ben – how deep did you make those edges? Mine just don’t look the same at 4"

  48. Bobby Rowe on June 20, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Fixing to do this myself. One question. Did you do anything to prevent grass from growing ? Barrier?

  49. Karen Banks on June 20, 2021 at 2:18 am

    You guys did an AMAZING JOB, I LOVE IT!

  50. Hot Lunch on June 20, 2021 at 2:18 am

    The job came out great man. Out of curiosity do you have an issue with weeds when mulching right onto the dirt? Do you put down any chems first?
