What can I reuse or recycle to make attractive garden edging?

Carmen from South Africa has sent an email asking: What can I reuse/recycle to make attractive garden edging? I’ve always been quite taken with the idea of wine bottles for garden edging (and an item on my long, long to-do list is to try making a raised bed on the same principle). For a more rustic look, you should mimic the commercial bamboo edging using offcuts from local trees – sticks and branches about 2-5cm (1-2inches) in diameter that are too small to bother burning but too big for composting. If you want them all to stay in a neat line, you could nail them to a thin batten; else, just let the soil hold them in place. I’ve seen some edging made from old ceramic tiles too but I’m not sure how they were supported – any ideas? Any other suggestions?
