I am looking for some suggestions on edging between lawn and bedding areas. My customer does not like concrete curbing, vinyl, steel, or aluminum. I am leaning towards cut native stone. This is a very high-end customer and also very picky. Any ideas?

stone looks good, or brick, even something that matches the house or siding might work to.....just dont get anything cheap or tacky

Cobblestone or brick are good choices for a more finished look. Use stone if you want a more rugged look.

Natural... only way to go, keep a nice deep edge so mulch doesn't spill onto the lawn, flip your weedwhacker over e/o week and keep a fresh edge. There is nothing more natural looking

this is nice to really simple, flush look, using stone (i really like the light grey stone but its personal preference)

I agree, 90% of our landscapings have went to this.

I too love the look of a natural edge I tend to call it a sunken edge. i am now trying to decide which bed edger to go with thinking bed-bug. for me Liriope is a great alternative
