Finishing Touch With Edging Stones

67K
Last season I converted my entire backyard into a flower garden. One of the things I did was to edge the garden with plastic edging. It looked fine. This year I decided to pretty it up a little. So I dug up the dirt between the plastic edging and the driveway. I needed about 2 inches of space so that the pretty scalloped concrete edging stones would fit. After I had dug out the dirt I was able to place the edging stones into place. What a difference it made! Looks so much nicer!

I also have some decorative rocks that I placed at the foot of the pathways.

The curve was a little difficult since I did not have any curved concrete sections :(

    Great job! I have a rental house I'm getting ready to put on the market. This would look fabulous on the path to the front door. Thank you for posting!

    Well done for converting your entire back garden into a flower garden! I did the same thing with my front garden last year (lifted all the lawn) and it is already looking lovely, just a year later. I really like what you have done with the edging - effort is always so well rewarded in a garden!

      @Valerie Yes, it is! Thanks, Valerie, I really love working in my garden now instead of having to cut the grass and worry about the rainstorms :)

      @Karen Deisenroth What? Are you saying if someone doesn't 100% agree with what people post on here they are not allowed to post their opinion? Sharon was not being nasty, she was pointing out a potential danger. You seem to be the nasty one...
