How to Install a Brick Paver Edge
Time Required: 2-4 hours
A clean edge between the lawn and garden gives your yard a formal and neat look. But edging serves a practical purpose, too. It keeps each element from intruding on the others. A reliable way to keep your lawn separate from your garden is to install a concrete or brick paver edge. This type of garden edging lets plants spill over a little bit from your garden but not into your lawn.
Decide on where to place your garden edge and be mindful of how you want to set it up. Use stakes, a garden hose or string to plot the course. Be aware of your sprinklers, drip system, or any pipes or wiring underground.
Place four pavers in a line on top of the sand. Use a level to make sure each brick is laying flat. If some are unstable, either add more sand or use a rubber mallet to whack them into place. Repeat in sections of four until finished. Fill in gaps between pavers with more sand. When finished, follow directions to wet and set the sand.
