Looks nice, what type of machine do you use for that? Is it hard work?

We used a sod cutter and then a curb machine. It is hard work but then again this is the only time I have done it. Do you have anything like that in Kansas?

I have seen it done a few times, and it looks like a pretty good idea. I was just kind of curious how hard of work it was, it looks like it would be more work to do than stones and such.

A few people have told me that. Personally I think they look better with stones in them. I will send more pics when I am done.

thats true that we have to do what the customer wants.. but my personal Favorite is just a traditional cut in edge, dark mulch contrasting with Green Grass.
