All you need for this is yourself and a shovel! I like to use this half moon border edger shovel.
How to Edge a Flower Bed
There are many ways to edge a flower bed. Often times, you can simply buy some type of paver and then line your flower bed with those, but that can be costly.
This way will be really cheap but will require some hard work.
The good news is that your flower bed will look like the pros edged it for you!

Shovel out the edge
Now you're ready to get to work and start shoveling. You can either follow your overgrown flower bed edge with your shovel or make a new edge.
The half moon shovel will make it fairly easy to shovel out in a straight line.
Keep going until it looks like this
Once you've gone a good distance, your edge should look like this.
When you're done digging out your edge, it's time to mulch. You can see my partially mulched flower bed here. When you mulch, make sure to not fill the mulch so high that it meets your new edge.
You want enough edge sticking up over the mulch that you actually see it!
That's it, you're done!
