Front garden borders- any ideas?
I love some of the ideas from others' projects for garden borders. I have a craftsman bungalow style home in midwest. The foundation is raised so have a redish brown brick backdrop for garden and then a center door/sidewalk/steps. The left bed is surrounded by existing sidewalk to driveway and driveway and staircase to porch. The right side has a concrete block boarder buried that circles around and corner and continues along east side of house. That border constantly gets overrun/grown by grass and is actually lower than the grass in yard so is unseen. Thw house sat empty for almost 25 yrs before we bought, so we pulled all overgrown gardens out and started feom scratch sort of. Some previous plants like to come back because we didn't dig out the dirt also Amd put in neW.
What would you do? Any ideas? For a border to work on both sides that would look even? The sidewalk and current border edges line up So if we stack on current border we would need to stack alomg sidewalk to keep even. But sidewalk is already natrow.
Cheapest and least sweat 😓 always the best for me. 😉
Thanks for your help and ideas.
