    Hate brick borders. The grass always grows inbetween and after a year or two they start pushing up randomly and everything looks sloppy.

    Does anyone know roughly how much stone dust and sand you need based on length? Also, can you make it a little higher than ground level so easier to trim grass?

    Those bricks are constantly going to get covered with mulch and you’ll always be sweeping it back.

    What a nightmare

  • Jim Wellman 1 year ago

    Seems a real waste of time and effort. I actually came here because I thought they were showing a way of running an edger along brick that would prevent chipping it all up.
