Farm-Style Lawn Edging
Using old cultivator discs as lawn edging is a cheap way to go and it looks good, too, says Mark Clipsham, Ames, Iowa, an architect who often looks at things with a rural eye.
  "Old disks are basically free, practically indestructable, easy to install, and they eliminate the need to trim. You just run the mower right over the edge of them. You can even plant decorative flowers in the holes," he says.
  Clipsham simply lays the disks down flat, overlapping one side.
  He has also used disks as planter boxes, standing the disks on edge vertically and overlapping the sides. He also uses them as bird baths and splash blocks for down spouts.
