i'll answer my own post....


You got some curves in the flower bed, its not just a straight bed. It stands out from the orginals. Looks good

I had seen you was installing pinestraw. How much are you putting in there?

I am putting the pinestraw pretty thick and high. Reason is because, it will settle and have that thick look.

Y a edge matt.
Well the edge gives it that separation look from the grass to the flower bed, a cleaner professional look
