First, congrats on the new house.
Second, all it takes one little root and those things will sprout. I would have done: a) till the ground, and b) thoroughly sprayed some vinegar.
You have a nice big yard. I would think about privacy- a nice vinyl fence will look good. If not vinyl, check out some photos of redwood fencing.
I built a lot of raised beds in the last 4 years. Bought the stones from Lowe’s. Attached are the photos of my backyard project. I am not a professional. I’m an RN and did this project whenever I had days off.

Fellow gardening fan.

Here's a photo of my front courtyard. The succulents around the fountain came from a local guy that cross pollinates and creates his own plants. Really interesting specimens.

Beautiful yard! Thanks for the reply. Id like to avoid fencing when possible. I intend to create a natural border eventually with lilac shrubs eventually being massaged to resemble a hedge. I just need to get out all the vines and roots along the whole property border. This garden section was only about 50 feet of a 200ft line of vines.

Thank you.
A hedge will look nice too.
Rent a tiller from Home Depot-you won’t have to touch this stuff. Use vinegar instead of ‘Round-up.’

Do you put any sort of "barrier" in the beds to keep the grass on it's side of the border?

A simple "Nice Work." Would have been sufficient. I would think after all of these years, and me being quite amicable with you. That I deserve the same respect.

Had no intention of offending, hence the smiley

I actually asked for your expert opinion on the beds, I can never keep the grass out of mine short of pulling it every week before I mow

When i read the Lacks Social Distancing, I figured the rest was the same.

With regard to keeping grass at bay, it is certainly a challenge. The stone border definitely helps. I still get some stragglers which I pull by hand. Chemicals would effect the flowers.

Finally, a non pornographic definition of edging.
