|Completed boarder defining enlarged Pink Rain Lily bed|
Here you can see the completed boarder and the difference in size between the old bed of Rain lilies and the new. Below is the bed of Egyptian Starclusters and Ti Plants I started which is parallel to the Rain Lily Bed.

Here you can see the use of a large tire and rocks to create the boarder of this flower bed along one side of the driveway. Along the inside edge of the low rock boarder (no concrete was used) are planted Red Ti Plants and Silver Dragon. Inside the bed are a variety of plants including: Calathea burle-marxi "Green Ice" and "Blue Ice", Torch Gingers, Chrysothemis, Indonesian Wax Roses and Ixoras.
Here is the other side of the driveway defined by old tires. I started covering them up with a rock boarder because I did not really like the tires and they were only intended to give some structure to the bed after which the plan was to put a rock boarder to hide the tires.
Above is a view of part of the drive way showing both beds. Another reason I wanted to cover up the tires is so that both borders would look the same. I also was waiting for the Silver Dragon to grow and multiply so I could plant more on the right side.
