    I am designing landscape beds along a home's foundation with mulch. On the one side of the the bed, mulch will meet its border, 3/4" decorative stone. Is there a product out there that will keep the stone and mulch neatly separated without looking aesthetically bad? The driveway is also filled with decorative stone. so I am cutting a new edge on the side of the driveway which has grass as a border. There is 1-2" of stone there now with lots of weeds which will get pulled, and then 18 tons more will be installed on top. Should I install aluminum edging here as well? Thanks

    Go with a brick and mortar edging. It looks a lot better than just metal edging.

    Run string lines to keep them strait, dig a trench two inches wider than the paver, fill with mortar, lay the brick.
