When I worked at the Botanic Gardens I used to enjoy edging the grass, it immediately made things look tidy and tended to, not like my own gardens which have most often had a looser more cottagey feel with plants spilling into one another. I love both looks. At Malleny garden my eye was really drawn to the formal neatness wherever a plant edged a pathway or lawn. Lots of different colours and textures in both foliage and path surface. These will going into one of my wee books...one day, nothing creative going on beyond the lens while I'm tired.
