Beautiful Borders

Keep Growing Detroit
Detroit, Michigan

Beautiful Border designs are easy to install and manage ornamental gardens featuring perennial flowers that will be sure to wow neighbors while providing environmental benefits like attracting pollinators and beneficial insects, creating habitat for migratory birds and managing stormwater runoff. At 25 feet long by 7 feet wide they’re designed to fit perfectly along the sidewalk or alley of a standard city lot. They would also look great along a garden pathway or the property line of an adjacent house.  More about this project >
