Sweet man, that's a pretty original looking border, I like it a lot. Is it just white sand you have filling in between the stones?

Actually, they are stones that were layed into cement.

O ok gotcha, sorry, I couldn't tell from the pictures. Did you do the borders or just the plantings inside? If you did do the borders, how did you make a form for the cement considering the weird shapes of the borders?

Used a plastic landscape edging that you can can at any home depot or lowes to form the shape first.

Here are some pictures of some stripes that we layed down today. We mounted a rubber on our deck. The stripes are ok but not good enough to where we want them to be. We will probably be getting a roller or some rolling wheels instead. After seeing a lot of striping on here we think the roller and wheels will work out a lot better. We have been really putting time into our striping kit because in our area there is not much striping done. And we really want to stand out wtih our stripes. I probably over did it on the pictures but we just wanted to show off and compare to some that we will post up later with our roller or wheels striping kit.

And some more pictures. On the last two pictures those were some attempted stripes on some tall fescue. The other pictures above where bermuda mixed with perennial rye, which seemed to stripe nicely. Not sure whats going on with the tall fescue attempts.
