Pumpkin carvings

This may sound like a daft question but what kind of knife do you use for carving? Or do you use various ones depending on the pattern?

Yes- mowing would be very tricky! Combining into a single bed would be a good idea. How about some trellis on the railing and let some clematis etc cover that whole wall area? Would make a very attractive welcome when you go in and out. You could relocate your trough under the window by the front door perhaps?
