      Idea for planting a garden, using cement blocks for invasive plants. That way they don't take over the other plants, flower bed.

      Small space garden. This is a great idea for a narrow yard, one can have several of these raised-bed semi-circles against a fence-line. If you don't make them too big around and leave enough space in between each to walk, then you can easily reach every inch of dirt. Like so: \_/ \_/ \_/ \_/ . Also for the handicapped, you can stack several rows of cement blocks to raise garden bed up to a workable height. Paint to enhance the look.

    was thinking cinder blocks for flowerbeds (since pressure treated wood is so bad and untreated will rot after time), but it is so ugly... maybe this could help hide the ugly! lol or something like this

    Look how they've used retaining wall blocks to outline the garden beds. Nicely done!

    Classier than the cement blocks, I wonder how much more it would cost?

    Interesting concept.

    Concrete cinder blocks topped with cheap concrete pavers.

    Brick pavers make a simple, handsome border and work well as edging material too. They're ideal when you want a wide border that keeps grass out of the garden, yet allows flowers and other plants to spill over without intruding onto the grass. You're less likely to chop them up with the lawn mower.
