    I would use "bordered" rather than "flanked". "By" and "with" can both be used but they have a slightly different meaning. "Bordered by..." suggests that the rose beds are adjacent to the road but not necessarily deliberately planted to enhance the road. "Bordered with..." suggests that the roses were deliberately planted as part of a program of landscape beautification.

    Contextually id say with. Because you are talking about a subjects features not what it is doing as an action like flanking the road with rose bushes.

    But id also start a sentance with because and or but.....

    Either is OK, but most would go for 'by'
