I am thinking ahead to when (if) the snow melts and I can work on the garden again.  I just moved into my home and the yard needs a lot of attention as its been allowed to get a little wild.  I would like to do some borders around the flower beds and vegetable garden to both look decorative and to keep the grass (sort of) from invading as much.  Can anyone reccommend anything?  At my last place I cut away the sod and put in gravel, but it made it hard to cut the grass at the edge of it.  What can alleviate that "edge grass cutting" issue as I only have a rotary mower and don't plan on getting anything else (especially if it uses gas or electric or other energy sources).  I will need to put in miles (ok not technically that much) of this bordering which will also need to be a pathway system to get to the compost pile, the new strawberry bed, the garage, the barbeque chiminea & patio table, etc etc ...
I would *really* like those pebble stepping stones, but no one carries them here, even though I could totally put one wheel up on top of them and mow the grass on the other side.  Ahhhhh!!! Why does living in nowhereville mean you can't get what you want all the time.
Frustrated, please help

And I think there are some others here that might give you some  ideas:

Good luck!

The biggest problem I am facing is that the materials I want to use most are not available here.
