Concrete Edging – Planting flower beds or gardens in your yard can provide the satisfaction of having plants grown successfully. While you beautifying your yard or providing fresh vegetables. Although the beds will have a neat and clean outline when you first install them, they will eventually erode, or the grass that surrounds the beds will start to overgrow the edges. You can block this from happening by placing cement edging stones throughout the beds.
Place the cement stones on the floor around the edge of the bed where you want to install the stones. Dig a ditch in the ground between the lines. The trench should be enough to hold the stones halfway in the deep soil. Hammer a wooden stake into the ground at each end of the trench. Tie the bricklayer line between the stakes. Set the first stone in the trench, place the front edge of the stone against the edge of the trench. Place another stone in the trench next to the first stone.
