    Where is the border, along drive, next to house, under bright sun, part shade, full shade? are you wanting to mix up every year (annuals), or want to come back every year(perennials). Take some graph paper and layout your desired shape, then go to the magazine rack and look at garden books, sit down and look at the pictures to find desired effect, If you want to do Perennials, check with your >>> local

      Keith,I forgot to say that Marigolds keep bugs of other plants and flowers.Bugs that try to destroy tomatoes,roses,etc.I sure hope you find a really nice border for your border.

    Alyssium is great and it has a delightful scent to it and comes in pink, white or deep purple or a light purple. Its great and very attractive as a border.

    Are you talking about plants as a border or rock, wood, etc.?

      Already tried wood, using the shaped bricks now, but still not sure about them, got the plastic borders too

    I used the small three quarter moon shaped bricks around my yardlight post so I could plant around it. They worked well, but grass does tend to grow up between them. I either pull them or the dog we take out front with us sometimes eats them as part of her salad that she enjoys. Bricks are probably the easiest to care for since they won't deteriorate over time, and other than being heavy, you can move them to change the shape or size of the garden easier.
