How Much Does Sidewalk Edging Cost?

Having sidewalk edging installed on one's property can be a wonderful way to separate landscaping from a walkway or sidewalk. Specifically, edging refers to laying down a physical barrier between landscape features and a designated walkway. Doing so can not only add to the aesthetic appeal of any property but also serves a practical purpose as well. By having landscape edging in place, walkways are more clearly defined and overgrowth from nearby plants and shrubs is diminished. Sidewalk edging is truly an effective way of giving any property a more polished and maintained appearance.

The Costs

  • The average cost of sidewalk edging is reported as $6.40 per square foot.

  • The maximum reported cost for sidewalk edging is about $7.44 per square foot.

  • At minimum, home owners should expect to pay $5.45 per square foot for sidewalk edging.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Sidewalk Edging

There are many pros and cons to having sidewalk edging installed. Home owners should carefully consider and weigh these benefits and drawbacks before spending the money on such a project. This way, they can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that they made the right choice in the long run.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of having sidewalk edging done is simply the visual appeal. Professional edging can add a significant amount of curb appeal to an existing home, which is great for those who are considering the option of putting the house on the market down the road. After all, the higher the curb appeal, the more likely a potential buyer will be to check out the house. Furthermore, a well-landscaped yard can yield a higher resale value of the home down the road.

Home owners tend to enjoy sidewalk edging because of its relatively low cost when compared to how much visual appeal it adds to the home. While the specific price can vary greatly depending on the terrain and the size of the sidewalk that needs to be edged, it is not uncommon for home owners to be able to have this project completely done by a professional for between $350 and $600.

One potential drawback of sidewalk edging, however, is that it can be difficult to alter in the event that a home owner wants to do something different with the landscaping down the road. Of course, this also depends on the specific material used for the edging; those who install concrete edging may face large expenses to have it removed because it requires the help of a professional and a number of powerful tools to get rid of the poured concrete.

Another possible drawback of having sidewalk edging installed is that it can be very difficult to know what material is best to use. There are so many different edging materials available these days, so home owners have to spend a great deal of time researching and considering the various options in order to make the right choice in terms of durability, cost and appearance.

Types of Sidewalk Edging

Homeowners who are considering the option of having a sidewalk edging project done can read through this list and get a better idea as to which option may be best for them.

Plastic Edging

Plastic edging is ideal for home owners who want to spend as little time and money as possible on their projects. Plastic edging is lightweight and easy to have installed. It is also very inexpensive, typically costing just a few dollars per square foot. Another benefit of this type of edging is that it can be easily removed if needed. However, plastic is not very durable as an edging material; it can easily become damaged, cracked or even come out of the ground.

Steel Edging

This is becoming an increasingly popular edging material option these days. Steel edging is a bit more expensive than plastic edging, ranging typically closer to $7 per square foot. However, it is much more durable and tends to be easier to install as well. It can still be removed relatively easily if needed, but it is not prone to breakage or other damage like plastic is. Steel edging, however, is typically very thin and does not provide much in the way of aesthetic appeal.

Brick or Stone Edging

Home owners who want to add as much curb appeal as possible may wish to consider brick or stone edging. With so many different options in terms of types of stone and colors of brick, the design possibilities are endless. Furthermore, these materials are ideal for edging that fits a curved walkway. It can be a bit more expensive, but this durable material is long lasting and still easy to remove or alter as needed.

Concrete Edging

Those who want a permanent edging solution and do not mind spending a bit of money may opt for concrete edging. This will involve having concrete poured along the walkway to create a permanent edge. This is the most long-lasting and durable option, but the drawback is that it can be very difficult to remove or alter down the road if desired.

Cost Considerations

The material used for sidewalk edging can certainly have an impact on the overall price of the project. However, other factors can come into play as well. For example, whether or not the company includes labor and installation is an important piece of information to find out before going through with any sidewalk edging project. Labor and installation itself typically costs between $100 and $250. Fortunately, most edging companies these days will include this as part of their estimate, and most companies are happy to provide free estimates so that home owners can get a better idea as to what the total cost of the project will be before hiring anybody for the work.

By shopping around and requesting quotes from multiple companies, home owners can enjoy the peace of mind in knowing that they chose the right company or contractor for the job. From there, they can enjoy their new sidewalk edging and the curb appeal that it adds to their homes in the process.
