    That sounds like a very effective way of planting beautiful/edible landscapes. One of our neighbors down the block has their whole front yard edged in chives. The pink blossoms are so pretty!

    we use both the front and the back, our little acre of land has to include every inch to support what we grow, my flower beds include herbs we use, tomatoes and lettuse, in the fall, when everyone else puts flowering kale with their mums, we put in cabbages and brussel sprouts with our mums. we also have patches of garlic and lavendar in areas of the yard.
