I need a little creative help here.  I've been really throwing myself into some landscaping and now, I need to put in a garden border.  It's got to be cheap, decent-looking, and something creative.  I've thought of wine bottles buried bottoms-up, broken concrete, and river rock.  But, I want something other than those fairly common solutions.

Any ideas?

I'd look for anything that you happen to have in large amounts.. for example, I posted a while ago about 3000 diskettes I uncovered in my barn that I got GREAT ideas for... that would make a pretty cool garden border.

Keep an eye out on freecycle, I see the oddest things in large numbers being posted there lately..

I've seen people use decorative plates and there was one woman in a recent issue of Birds and Blooms who used musical instruments. Sometimes bowling alleys get rid of old scratched up bowling balls and I always thought those would make a nice boarder. Or you could always peruse the library book sales and use some neat old books as a boarder. To protect the books you could dip them in resin.

In the Garden Junk forum at GardenWeb, someone made these great edgers out of plain white tile, but had painted the names of veggies and herbs and flowers and pictures on them in (I think) some kind of ceramic paint that you bake in the oven so they'd be pretty weatherproof. She'd done it on the corners, and 'planted' them in the ground so the edging part was triangular shaped- it really looked great.

Some of the people there did the bowling balls, that looks great and colorful too.

In my garden I made a really low (1 ft.) wattle fence out of tree trimmings and bittersweet- it's really easy, but it all depends on the look you're going for!
