The plants on the right side of the photo are Xanadu (green) and Cordyline fruiticosa 'Black Magic' (red plant); on the left are Bromeliads (lime green and small red ones). In the front are 'Firewitch' Dianthus and the small palm in the middle is a Robellini Palm. All tropical plants. I live in zone 10/11.

If I could offer a little piece of advice having a checked a number of professionals before I installed my curbing ... Be sure to have the contractor or professional show you other completed projects they have done. Some of my neighbors had the curbs installed and had a "curbing nightmare" on their hands. I understand that if too much sand is used vs. concrete, the curbs crack and lift up within a year or so. Very costly to have the curbs removed and re-installed. Also, beware not to install the curb too close to a tree that will grow large; like a small oak tree that turns into a large oak tree. The roots also lift the curb and break it.

For Florida, I would recommend Borders by Design (Harold) 954.658.7543.

P.S.-- I see there was a good website recommendation here. Good luck to you in B.C.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Garden Edging: Clean Lines for Your Landscape
A smooth and low-lying concrete curbing like this separates the lawn from the rest of the landscape and helps protect the other plants while you mow the lawn. I love the contrast here of the cast concrete with the two types of stone.

There are really several edgings here: the concrete curb to edge the grass, the two different groups of pebbles, and the metal or plastic that keeps the pebbles separate. Nice contrasts.
