From top to bottom; Edging Spade (Half Moon), Edging Shears, Hand Fork, Fork, Spade, Rake. Also wheelbarrow for turf – and bucket for weeds and roots.
Begin clearing the bed of weeds and their roots using the forks and bucket.
Roses, aquilegia, and other flowers.
Chive plants grow well with roses, as do most onion type plants.
Now use the edging spade to make a fresh edge.
Begin removing the turf where it has been cut.
The new edge will begin to form.
The turf can be put in the barrow for using elsewhere or composting.
Now the edging shears can be used to cut off the overhanging grass on the new edge.
Usually it is best to place them on a slight angle.
Now the trimmed bits of grass can be removed.
The gravel around the other edge was managed by using a rake, and also hands and gloves.
Rake some of the soil in the bed toward the edge, to fill in the depression.
The plants can now be given a live covering. At this job, the customer orders this product (strulch) for their trees and beds. Also, woodchip can be used – see here and here.
This is the covering on a different bed. Use plenty of covering.
This bed was done previously (the other bed is not going to have covering applied yet, as the owner would like to plant some plants in the gaps first).
