Finally, a stone border for the front garden.

Allan waited about two years after removing the wood border in the front garden to start the stone one. Quite a bit of grass was growing into the bed without the barrier. You can see that it looks pretty ratty right now. I am going to weed wack and use my vinegar solution to kill it before mulching. So you are seeing this in its most raw state.
This bed is considerably larger than it was. I am trying to figure out what I could put in here that would be edible, but look pretty in the front yard. Ideas anyone?


  1. How about using Chives for your edging? They look great, especially when flowering, and you can eat them too. Or you could try Nasturtiums.

    1. Hi Mark. This bed is on the north side of my house. Which do you think would do best?
