When a gravel path and adjacent planting beds are new, the transition from bare soil to gravel can give the garden an unfinished look.

One solution: Define the path edges with larger stones. As plants grow, they'll tumble over and hide the rocks.

In this garden, lady's-mantle with chartreuse blooms surrounds the stone fountain in foreground, while cape fuchsia (Phygelius) with orange-pink flowers spills into the path.
