  1. I love the picture of the garden edging with brick, and I like that you pointed out that it cleanly edges the lawn and garden beds. My husband and I are trying to figure out a way to separate our garden from the rest of the yard, and I like the look of brick. I think a benefit of adding bricks to your landscaping is that it would add a really charming country feel to your overall landscape.
