I have the same question. What material did you use to separate the pebbles from the planting area?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Your Yard: Are You Ready to Lose the Lawn?
Gravel. Adding a gravel path is one of the quickest changes you can make to your landscape, gravel is easy to work with and generally leans toward the heart of budget-friendly. All it takes is a few yards of landscaping cloth, some type of edging and the ability to spread gravel.
Debra Prinzing added this to Privacy Screening Made Pretty
Shhh! This narrow space feels like a secret garden where you might want to speak in a hushed voice. While the property is situated very close to the neighboring one, the lush, textural row of clumping bamboo converts it into a beautiful and private path enclosure. The only sounds you'll hear are the crunch of your sandals across the gravel path and the rustle of bamboo fronds when there's a breeze.
Debra Prinzing added this to 8 Splendid Side Yard Designs
Some people hang tapestries on their hallway walls. And some people line their side garden with a textural privacy screen that resembles a fabric tapestry. This narrow side garden has a lot going for it: 1. the gravel walk is contained with a slender metal edging on either side, 2. the bamboo is densely planted, but maintained like a hedge and 3. uplighting, subtle but effective, adds drama after dark.
Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to The 3 Top Ways to Light Up Your Landscape
1. Safety LightingGrab a flashlight and walk your garden at night. Where are you likely to trip? To walk off the path into the darkness? To back the car off the driveway? To need access on a somewhat regular basis (for instance, the trash storage area)? Also look to see if wayfinding is clearly delineated: Think in terms of getting from point A to point B without breaking your neck. Finally, revisit these same points but as though you'd never seen the garden before, then tweak your lighting plan to assure that visitors can safely and easily negotiate the dark as well.2. Security LightingNow look at your yard and consider where you'd like to eliminate dark corners — places where someone could hide or the spot where the coyotes hop the fence. The amount of lighting you need for this function depends on your comfort level and your situation, but it's best to avoid prison-yard levels of illumination. Path lights, subtle style. Path lights are small light fixtures along the edge of a walkway, a driveway or another type of path. There are lots of styles to choose from. Pick a style that complements your garden and house — or pick one that just "disappears" in the landscape. I tend to be fussy about the light a fixture makes, versus looking for a fixture that makes an architectural or artistic statement. Avoid creating a runway effect by staggering light, setting some higher and some lower, placing some nearer and some farther from the path and/or softening the fixtures with vegetation — as in this photo.
Culpepper Carpets & Interiors, Inc. added this to Bamboo Sprouts Up in Bountiful Home Uses
While bamboo is lovely planted in a garden, beware that the roots can extend 20 feet underground and disturb foundations and plumbing pipes. Also, it can take over and become extremely costly and difficult to eradicate.See how to use bamboo in the landscape
Julia Pockett added this to Bamboo Products — Earth Friend or Foe?
The water-use efficiency of bamboo is estimated to be twice that of other trees, increasing its capability to handle harsh weather conditions such as droughts, floods and high temperatures.Bamboo grows quickly, can be harshly cut back with quick regrowth and is an evergreen plant — making for a beautiful green wall in this garden

I like this, the lights themselves wont give off much light, so sort of follow the dots idea. As with all ground mounted options we need to put them on a little stone or concrete bases to protect them from lawnmowers. As an alternative I also like the idea of a hedge with something glowing buried in it. Hedge would have to be well maintained. A separate light could still be used behind the hedge to uplight trees a little. How do you feel about planting a hedge line?
