There are a number of materials to consider when deciding how to separate a planter, garden, or flower bed from the walkway or lawn around a home or place of business.

When appropriately designed, the flow of an outdoor space can begin at the curb and continue up the drive, down the sidewalk and to the front door of a home or business with clear cut definition separating a flow of traffic and keeping people out of your plants.
