How Much Does Brick Edging Cost?

Brick edging offers many advantages to beyond the traditional look and feel so many homeowners desire. Off the bat, property owners will be happy to know that brick edging is cheaper than all other options out there. Additionally, they also last for years. See the breakdown of all the costs below.

Cost of Brick Edging

Basic Brick Edging

  • The average cost per linear foot of basic brick edging is $6.35.
  • The minimum cost per linear foot of basic brick edging is $5.26.
  • The maximum cost per linear foot of basic brick edging is $7.47.

Mid-Grade Brick Edging

  • The average cost per linear foot of mid-grade brick edging is $8.07.
  • The minimum cost per linear foot of mid-grade brick edging is $6.99.
  • The maximum cost per linear foot of mid-grade brick edging is $9.19.

Highest Grade Brick Edging

  • The average cost per linear foot of the highest grade of brick edging is $9.96.
  • The minimum cost per linear foot of the highest grade of brick edging is $8.75.
  • The maximum cost per linear foot of the highest grade of brick edging is $11.48.

Sub-types of Brick Edging

Lower grade bricks used for edging come in basic red clay or plastic. The middle grade of brick edging includes recycled bricks, resin bricks, inter-locking bricks and bricks that are not made of clay but instead are made of poured concrete colored and shaped to look like brick. The highest grade includes clay bricks with decorative edging and bricks designed to look like stone pavers. Bricks for edging may be made out of polyethylene, resin, clay, concrete or plastic.

Different Uses of Brick Edging

There are many uses for brick edging in residential and commercial landscapes. Some of the most common uses include:

  • Creating a border around a flower or vegetable garden.
  • Division of areas of a raised garden bed for separating different types of plants.
  • Stopping the spread of plants from growing into unwanted areas.
  • Lining a pathway or sidewalk to deter people and pets from walking in the grass.
  • Creating a border around a tree.
  • Adding visual interest around a rock garden or water feature.
  • Stacking flat edging bricks to build a planter.
  • Creating a path or stepping area between plants.

Advantages of Brick Edging

Brick edging offers many advantages to home and property owners.

  • Even the highest quality of brick edging costs less per linear foot than other types of edging material.
  • For the low initial investment, many edging bricks such as those made of clay will last for decades or even hundreds of years.
  • Home and property owners enjoy the variety of colors and textures in recycled bricks and other decorative bricks, which add character and visual interest to the landscape.
  • They also provide a finished look to a path or flower bed.
  • Edging bricks can be obtained in many different styles and colors to suit the architecture and style of a property.
  • Brick edging is easy to obtain; new and recycled bricks are widely available. Recycled brick edging can even be harvested from demolition sites.
  • Brick edging is easy to install in a variety of configurations; the edging can be installed vertically or horizontally.
  • Flat bricks can also be stacked to create a taller edging.

In addition to the aesthetic appeal, brick edging may reduce the infiltration of invasive plants, vines and weeds into other parts of the yard. This functional benefit of brick edging also results in less maintenance, which includes reducing the need for weeding and trimming grasses and vines by hand.

Disadvantages of Brick Edging

There are some distinct disadvantages with the use of brick edging.

  • Movement of the bricks may occur during freeze and thaw cycles, resulting in upheaval of the bricks from their original placement.
  • Brick edging is heavy, and if a large quantity of edging is needed, it will be difficult to move the heft of the edging around the yard or property.
  • Placing brick edging is a labor-intensive process, especially if a complex design or pattern is desired.
  • If the brick edging is installed vertically, the corners and edges of clay and concrete bricks may cause scrapes or cuts to the skin when tripped over or bumped into.
  • Plastic or resin bricks may crack after a few years of exposure to heat and moisture. Porous clay or concrete bricks may chip due to moisture infiltration. This may result in the need to replace one or more bricks.

Additional Costs

When home or property owners want brick edging to stay in place, additional materials such as fill dirt, crushed stone or cement may be needed. The cost of these additional materials to keep the brick edging in place averages $.75 per linear foot.

For the most effective use as a landscape barrier, a trench needs to be dug, so the bricks can be partially submerged into the trench. The cost of creating a trench for the brick edging will add to the overall labor fees for the project.

Tools and equipment such as hoes, shovels or tractors will also add to the expense. Daily equipment rental fees for digging a shallow trench may add another $66 per day to the total cost of brick edging projects. Creation of a complex edging design or pattern will also add to the final cost of a project.
