Easyflex landscape edging. In our backyard there's a huge area with big rocks and overgrown areas, I'd like to make it all one garden. Is it a pain in the ass to install edging like this? How is it working out for you?
Fluke edge trimmers.
Lawn edging. I would love to have a simple strip of edging around the edge of the lawn. I've searched all over the internet and can't find any ideas for DIY edging. Please let me know what you've done, and what if anything is too challenging to do yourself. Thanks.
I think this is the best one. I've also considered the planters with the plastic strips and the PVC pipe, but was leaning towards the Flex Edging. This is the best solution. I don't want it to appear to be something done by a contractor.
I love the idea of the concrete pavers. I think a concrete path is an amazing idea for a backyard garden area. What did you do about that slope? That would be so easy to fix.
We have a small patio in our back yard. I really like the idea of concrete pavers and want to get a couple and install them.
There's this thing we've done in the past, though, which we might do again. We have a rock garden. There's a slope running from a rockery to the house. Over time, the rocks have shifted, or we've done something wrong, and there are some rocks that don't fit. We're going to get some heavy duty plastic pavers, drill holes in them, and then we'll either use rock anchors to hold them in place, or we'll use plastic sheeting that we could tie into place. We're keeping that option open in case the plastic pavers aren't the right solution.
We've always maintained the yard and landscaping. When I was in college, my dad and I did most of the yard work, and I'm sure the backyard is the way it is now. My parents love to play and garden, so I don't think they're the right fit for the backyard.
I'm thinking, though, that, with the new raised beds, we should think about more maintenance. Maybe you could have someone come out and do regular weeding, or maybe do it yourself if you want to but the job. I don't know how much weed killing, leaf blowing, or pruning we would need. I'm thinking it would be fairly minimal. If you put in flowers, you need to get ready to water, because unless you have a very large sprinkler system, you're going to have to hand water those. If you want roses or perennials that don't require much attention, I'd consider that a plus. If you don't have the money to hire someone else or if you don't have the time, you could do the work yourself.
In terms of your questions, when is it that you would like to plant, what's the time frame you have? If you want to plant all of this stuff in a year, and I don't think you should, that's fine. The plants grow really fast, so the earlier you plant them, the better. But you do have a lot of options.
Your question about the pots. You don't really need pots, you can plant right in the ground. I believe you can still get the same benefit from the pots, because the roots have somewhere to spread and they'll need more room than you would in the ground. A pot also provides a little bit of structure, so you don't want to miss out on that. The plants grow in pots naturally, but they grow pretty tall, so if you have a space where you want them to get a little more space, you'll need to provide that.
If you did want to plant the pots in the ground, you can always get a little bit of dirt from the bottom of your pots and mix it in with what you have around you. I would advise against getting too much dirt out of the pots, as that can cause issues, as well.
The second part of your question is, what kinds of options do you have? Well, right now you have cacti and succulents. Those are the two things that you can do right now. You can also do some perennials. It's up to you. You can plant some perennials like roses or whatever you like. There's a big variety.
You may have already looked into this, but here's a very quick video about planting in pots. It's going to be a little bit more thorough than what I'm giving you, but it'll give you a better idea. There are other videos, as well, but they are kind of long and if you're kind of looking for a quicker solution, this is a good place to start.

Hey there. So, you're looking at one of my cacti. This is something that I'm not going to go into too much detail on, but it is one of my favorite things in my garden. This is an ornamental cactus and it's an Agave americana. It's kind of a spiky plant, but if you don't look close at it, it's really cute. The color of it is red and it's a nice red color. It's really great for the fall and winter. I can see this growing over the top of some leaves and then the frost will come and it will drop those leaves off.
Now, I'm also looking at this one here, this is an Agave tequilana. This is a little bit different because it's got these really large leaves. It's kind of a dark green. There are small little spikes here and then there's a small flower here. I'm going to tell you the little flower looks a lot like a rose, but it's not, it's actually a cactus flower. It's the same color as the leaves. This is a wonderful thing to have in the garden because it gets a really nice little boost of energy in the fall and winter, so it's a really nice thing to plant in.
So, you can find these all throughout the southwest, they're kind of easy to find. They're kind of common and in my opinion, they're worth having in the garden because they're pretty and they're low maintenance.
If you'd like to learn more about them, I would suggest a book called Cacti and Succulents for Dummies, it's by Linda Bown and she has a whole series of these wonderful books. The first one is on Cacti and Succulents. So, there's a good one in your library and another book called Desert Plants for Dummies and so on and so forth.
So, there you have it. I hope you'll find this useful and you'll be able to start having some in your garden. Until next time, have a wonderful day.
