I have just been using a flat shovel. In some of the pictures I did not use any type of edging because the customer did not want to pay for it.

The last set of pics I actually used an edge next to the house it just didn't turn out really well in the pics.

yea you should go 4-6 inches down and dont fill the mulch up to the top. then with a metal rake compress it into the edge. works great for us

Yea i mean it all looks decent besides the edging, I always edge no matter what, it always looks like piss if you don't and i refuse to leave a job looking like piss, Work on making nice deep edges and work on making them more straight and crisp.
