    Need to come up with an edge for this bed so mulch doesn't run into driveway. I'm in the process of convincing home owner to remove fabric which is causing the mulch to slide. Any suggestions?

    Well, since i can't see the pics. I would just try some sort of edging, like steel or that plastic crap. It's ugly but it may fix your problem. You could also try digging back from the driveway and make a trench and not fill the mulch up so far that way the mulch on top has a place to slide to. I don't think the fabric has much to do with it, just experiment. You'll find something to work!

    we use a lot of ep henry curbstones for flowerbed edgers. Looks better then the plastic or metal edging. Its a good money maker too!! payup

    I was thinking about curbstone, but I wasn't sure how that would look next to the driveway. It wouldn't go all the way up the entire driveway, just where the bed is which is approx. 20ft.

    If I go with a cut edge it would butt up to a blacktop driveway. Don't know if I ever seen that before.
