    Thanks guys!

    Yeah it's somewhat popular but I really like the clean look plus the mulch never runs out into the grass and it stays looking clean for a long time!

    Here are some before pictures of a job I started today...

    Details are...

    Turning this 25'x25' area into a garden but only up to the planting stage... Beds will be going around the entire perimeter with some sod in the middle and a small stepping stone walkway. Used a Dingo today to remove around 6-8 inches of material (mostly driveway gravel and large stones) and will be adding in around 10 yards of topsoil for now and maybe more later after the soil compresses. Exciting project and the first time I've used a Dingo, neat little machines and easy to use!

    Hi Guys,

    I landscape up in the Vancouver area of Canada and enjoy seeing what other guys are doing around North America.

    We do maintenance as well as installations and I was curious about the river rock perimeter along the turf edges of the bedding renovations you been showing us. From a maintenance perspective, would it be better to put a discrete edging between the rock and the turf so the turf won't "creep" into the rock? I've been using a flexible, black vinyl edging for many years that takes edging the turf along bedding completely out of the maintenance equation.

    Just thought I'd ask. Love the pics and your customers are obviously getting a good product for their money!

    Cheers,

    Thanks Barry for the comments!

    As I look back I do see an actual trenched edge between the rock and turf might be a better idea however I haven't had a problem with the turf creeping yet. I'm able to line trim the edge so it stays crisp.

    I don't use black plastic edging as I think it looks cheap and tacky. Its either the stone edging or a natural turf edge.
