The Garden Border

For all you Gardeners out there, if you really want to bump up the appeal and dramatically improve your landscape, plant garden borders to accent your walkways, fences, lawns or paths. Garden borders can be a grounding element in the design that is relevant to the plants and grasses currently present in your yard. Not only are they pretty to look at, they anchor certain visual patterns and serve as a means for echoing color in the varieties of plants that are the highlights of your landscape.

The proper border should draw the eye across smaller plantings, gradually leading it across rhythmic patterns to taller grasses or plants; creating flow and visual interest.  An effective border can turn a merely lovely garden into one that is truly stunning.  

Below are some examples of different type of borders that you can incorporate into your own garden.
