    Just use the shovel to create an edge around your garden and then remove the grass from the edge. You can really create a precise edge that way and its fairly easy and simple.

Also, keep mulch away from edge so grass cannot grow back. When you really get into gardening, you may want to consider a really good power edger that will do walks, drives, and garden beds. Look around at professionally maintained properties to see how they do edges. (often shopping malls are a good place to look.)

    I like using pavers, with the long sides together, around the perimete. This created a border your lawnmower wheels can roll down, allowing you to mow and weed eat right to the edge of the bed.

    Straight edge shovel.
