Garden Design 101: Old-World Landscape Edging from Belgium

October 27, 2017

Luxe landscape edging from Belgium-based designer Atelier Tradewinds evokes nostalgia for a bygone era. “The process which results in a finished product always starts with a dream,” says Tradewinds owner Jean-Pierre Galeyn.

Made of long-wearing wrought iron, the Tradewinds Bordurette collection has seven styles, ranging from ornately Old World (Gothic and Roman) to a clean, minimal silhouette (called Spring) that resembles an arched croquet wicket.

Above: From the Bordurette Collection, Dragon will measure 22 centimeters high (about 8.5 inches) after its prongs are sunk into the soil. It is constructed of heavy iron meant to be a “permanent solution” in the garden. For more information and prices, see Atelier Tradewinds.

The benefits of metal landscape edging are many. “Long-lasting, sturdy, looks great and you can generally use a mower or strimmer right up to the edge,” writes Clare; see more in our recent post, Hardscaping 101: Lawn Edging.

Above: Venise will sit 16 centimeters (about 6.3 inches) above the soil after its spikes are sunk into the earth.

“Metal landscape edging is the little black dress of a garden: elegant, strong yet understated, tailored and timeless,” writes Janet. Read more in Hardscaping 101: Metal Landscape Edging.

Above: Duparc sits 19 centimeters above the ground (about 7.5 inches). For information and prices, see Atelier Tradewinds.
