Paver Garden Edging
This is one of the most economical ways to edge a garden and one that can often match the existing patio or driveway. While in theory any paver could be used, the most versatile would be the rectangular ones that measure 230x115x40mm. There is a wide range of colours and styles available, all of which are on display here at the yard in Darra.
While pavers could simply be laid in a shallow trench as an edge, this would be difficult to make neat and tidy and the turf, soil, etc. would not be held in place effectively. The pavers need to be laid on a bed of mortar or even concrete mix and then sand and cement applied at every join. This then would give you a strong, neat edge that will stop the grass, weeds or soil from passing through. As a rough guide, a bag of premix mortar will be enough for approx 3 lineal metres of paver edging (depending on the size of the paver and the depth of the trench).
