A little help on a bed design.

im landscaping these signs for city. its a donation from my company.

trying to decide how to create an edge for the beds infront of these signs. i was thinking maybe doing a small wall as going two bricks high or just cutting a edge like the other beds i do.

im open to opinions. both signs are exactly the same.

I like the idea of 2 bricks high. You going to fill in with dirt?? Use a low groundcover that won't get higher than the bottom letters and a taller feature on both sides of the sign.

been a long time since i have seen any thing Westwego

I grew up in Terrytown sadly moved away 20 years ago

I would go the two brick high and the low ground cover as stated above ,less upkeep on your part that way

A small dry stack would work as well.

I think that it would look better without the wall. The wall makes the short sign look even shorter. I like the evergreens for the ends, and I think that red and gold flowers would work best.

I agree with leaving the wall out, if you build it up 2 courses high your mulch will be right at the bottom of the spot lights as well, if not higher.
