Here are some pics of a planter bed I renovated at my house. The finished product looks sparse, but I still plan to put a Japanese Maple back by the hose reel. I have some annuals that should come up from seed too. Next year I will fill in some more if need be.

A big improvement on what was there. It does look a little "empty" to me though. Good job.
The "empty" spots will be filled in with annuals and possibly other perrenials.

About the border, I want to put in a natural stone border but it's not in the budget right now.

What'd you use for the tearout of the old stuff?

Looks like a good improvement
What did I use? Bypass loppers and a shovel. Thanks for the compliment. It will look much better in 2 years when those plants mature a bit. Might put some more daffodils, tulips, etc in this fall.

Isn't that edging those brick interlocking patio blocks that can be bought at Home Depot?
