We also had some free pavers from a neighbor that had pulled them up and didn't want them so we pulled out rotten wood ties and put the pavers down as edging. MUCH better!!! Also, this is the most sun this area gets and you can see it is very mottled....it is basically a full shade bed. I am thinking of planting it with hostas and ferns. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Also, you might remember this bed which I planted my hydrangeas in. It is in front of the bumped out part above (which is the fireplace).
We removed the make shift border of rocks and put the pavers all the way down the bed. I think it makes a LOT of difference and looks beautiful now.
Here is a long view with the pavers all the way down the side. Ahhhh, so much better. I still need to clean the brick in that corner (of the mold) but I think it all came together beautifully. Now, I will be putting mulch into the bed and hopefully planting in the Fall or I might just wait until the Spring. We will see!
Oh, and I just had to show you a couple of pictures of my Dad. He has never had a riding lawn mower and when they were here, he wanted to mow the yard at their home (that they will retire to)....Alan said have at it. He had a ball. He even came over and mowed in our front yard.
