    On a residential lot and most likely the done by the owner, he decided to use black 4" flexible drainage pipe as a border.

    He had it pinned down with metal staples circling an area of 15'x20' and filling in the area with red mulch.

    Unusual but affective.

    lol, funny, the bathroom/plumbing theme. how about functional shower heads hanging over the beds for watering.

    it figures this guy is using something tacky like that. he decided to use red mulch, right?...enough said.

    I have seen this before.

    A local person has the same thing. 4" drainage pipe just laying on the ground staked in. Funny looking to me.

    People will do anything to save a buck.........

    I've seen the bed frames with the flowers before. The one I saw even had a sign to let you know that it was a "flower bed"

    Hey guys, I just started a thread about red mulch before I read this post.

    I guess I'm not alone.
