Another admirer here!

Great diversity and combinations with lots of interesting little details. I particularly liked the effect of the stones added to the corner bed on the patio. Fantastic detail in those cut edges too. I favor cut edge beds to almost all other edging but my lowland soil doesn't cooperate as I'd wish it too.

Thank you very much Wes and Karen for the very nice comments. I tip my hat to you. I tip my hat to you.

I have been doing my spring edge cutting this week, I do it a few time over the season to keep the grass from growing into the beds, I like the cut edge beds because it is a very neat clean look.

I couldn't agree more! I just realized that all of my seating areas are located in "shady nooks", but my favorite spot has room for only myself... and a cat!

Isn't one of the perks of being the gardener that you get to stake out your own space? Smiling
