Ok, I need help on how to make my edges look better.  An example is if I crochet a square, no mater whether it is sc, dc, tc, the edges are always the same.  Ugly.  I have tried everything I can think of to fix this:
chain then turn clockwise
chain the turn counterclockwise
turn clockwise then chain
turn counterclowise then chain
chain from the front
chain from the back
I am out of ideas.  It makes it difficult if I plan on sewing seams (which stitches to sew in since they aren't in any distiguishable pattern) or if I am planning on crocheting on an edge (again, which stitches to crochet into since there are no distiguishable stitches). 
The rows look great, it's just the edges, the turns...I don't get it.  I just end up winging it and hope for the best.
Advice?  If you could include pictures or video, that would be fantastic.  I learn better visually.
Here is an example of what I mean.  the red arrows show the ugly edges:
