Ah, you know I was actually thinking it seemed like I see more of those in the sun than the others. Thanks for the info.
Another question. I'm interested in that Echo bed redefiner you have. Would you think if you were making a new bed, did a rough edge with a spade, then went over it with the edger, would it look real crisp? (Almost like you used an actual bed edger to begin with?)
Also, how are you getting some of those mulch beds so clean and smooth? Do you use any type of tiller or anything?
