Do you landscape "on the edge?" I'm sure comedian, Fred Stoller has, assuming that he's ever done any landscaping. In case you're not familiar with Fred, he's made appearances in Seinfeld and Everybody Loves Raymond. But I know him best from a stand-up act of his I caught many years ago. In this act, he claimed -- in an overpoweringly nasal monotone -- to be "living on the edge," citing ridiculous examples to prove his case. For example, drinking milk a day after its expiration date was, in Fred's mind, a perilous journey into bravado land.
But for the rest of us, when I speak of landscaping on the edge, I'm really thinking about landscaping property lines. People spend a lot of time and energy getting this part of their landscaping right -- and with good reason. Boundaries are important; some would say there's even something magical about them.
The ancient Romans had a god, named "Terminus," who was a sort of deification of the boundary. It may be beyond your powers to elevate your border landscaping to a divine status, but I do all I can in this article to help you make it the best it can be.
