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.

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.
