Powder coated steel elevates edging to an art form when it takes the shape of a low fence. The design for this edging comes from Shakespeare’s garden in Stratford, England. These hoop stakes mark bed and path edges while also pulling double duty as plant supports. To draft hoops as edging, place them side by side or slightly overlapping along planting beds or paths. Hoop stake edging is the perfect choice for keeping annuals or perennials from falling over onto lawn or walkways.

A set of grass covered steps leads from the main house down to the paddocks and barn area. To define this feature from the lower level, natural stone was added to the face of the steps.

One half of this modern driveway was removed to give the home an entry courtyard. Then, designers added a lower fence to allow for visual connectivity to the neighbors, since other areas had been obscured from their view by higher walls. Then, designers build a rolling gate with perforated steel panels and an entry walk gate with a walkway running parallel to the new driveway to make the space more secure.
