A variety of materials can be used to create edging. Blocks made of granite, clay, or concrete are the most commonly used driveway edging materials. Wooden landscape logs and railroad ties are also frequently employed. Poured concrete curbing and ordinary bricks can also be installed alongside driveways to create an edging. Even something as simple as a line of plastic or steel edging may be placed between the driveway and the lawn to restrict the growth of grass and weeds.
