Project

Simple Edging

Materials

  • Hand pruner
  • 3/8-inch bamboo strips
  • Garden twine

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Use a hand pruner to cut bamboo strips into two-foot lengths. Give the ends sharp points so that they will easily enter the soil by making your cuts at an angle.

  2. Step 2

    Insert the bamboo sticks 6 inches apart, so the sticks lean toward each other at about a 45-degree angle, and bind them together with garden twine at the points at which they intersect. Martha uses a simple over-and-under knot, secured by a square knot.

  3. Step 3

    Cut off the tops of the bamboo sticks 3 inches above the ties.
