  1. I have crossties lining my driveway which separated a recent flower bed. The crossties are now rotten. I also have the same in front of my home to separate my shrubs from my sidewalk. Both areas are filled with brown river rock. I plan to remove all the crossties and replace them with decorative stone. I want to remove the stone next to the driveway and only have a decorative stone to separate my lawn from my driveway.
    Any suggestions for an inexpensive really easy stone border that an elderly lady can do with no help. Thank you!

    • Hi, Beverly!
      Just mix one cup of rubbing alcohol and 2/3 cup of white vinegar in a 32-ounce spray bottle, then top off the bottle with water.
      Good luck!
