Have you been dreaming about the grass you want to plant next spring? Or the landscape project you plan to work on as soon as you have the chance?
As you work on landscaping, you will often discover that you need some edging to divide grass from mulch, rocks from grass, or to prevent other materials from mixing.
This blog post will examine three popular paver edging ideas for your yard or garden. Read on to learn how each type of material works best and how it adds value to your property!
Many use wood, plastic, or rubber edging to separate things. But did you know that pavers are a longer-lasting (and attractive!) option for edging?
Pavers, unlike other products that are frequently used, will stand the test of time and not disintegrate or break down. You can effortlessly mow or edge against them without causing damage, and they will keep your landscape materials separate. If you have rock or mulch up against your grass, a reliable paver edge will keep these from scattering into your grass.
The first paver edging idea you might consider to spruce up your concrete patio is adding pavers around it as a landscape border.
You can choose from several different patterns to make your paver border.
Try our Holland Stone, Double Park, or Plaza Stone if you want pavers to create your paver patio border. Any of them will work well to create a clean and quality paver edge.
The second paver edging idea you might consider is using pavers as curb stones.
The singular way to use pavers as curb stones is to stand them on end. This will create a solid mini wall to ensure you have the curb edge you need.
What pavers are recommended to use to create a curb? We recommend our Chateau Moderna, Gradino Step Block, or Chateau Diviso.
To create a garden wall, follow our instructions for How to Build a Stone Planter.
As you finish stacking each course, use your 24” level to double-check that you’re building a perfectly vertical stone planter. If your garden wall is leaning, use a rubber mallet to nudge the stones until each side is vertical.
What pavers should be used to create a garden wall? Three of our best options for garden wall pavers are the Chateau Wall, Tegula Garden Wall, and Murata™.
