The four materials that you’ll need to start out are:

  • Viagro no-dig edging
  • metal spikes
  • fast setting concrete mix
  • landscaping blocks

All of these items can be purchased at your local hardware store or gardening store. The amount of supplies will depend on the amount of space that you are looking to cover.

Step 2: Start by laying out plastic border

Step 2_1_1

You need to put your plastic border in place. Pick the location very carefully. You will be securing the border with spikes, and it’s not always easy to move the border after it’s in place.

Step 3: Place metal spikes at right distances

Step 3_1_1

Use metal spikes to keep the plastic border in place. For a standard plastic border, you will put a spike in every third loop (leaving two loops in between every spike).

Step 4: Hammer the metal spikes to stabilize the plastic border

Step 4_1_1

Use a hammer to secure the spikes and keep the plastic border in place. Be sure to use proper safety precautions when using a hammer.



Step 5: Apply the fast-setting concrete mix

Step 5_1_1

You need the concrete to secure the landscaping blocks that you bought for this project. Pour a generous amount of concrete mix at the edge of the plastic border.



Step 6: Gently firm the concrete mix

Step 6_1_1

The concrete must be condensed after it is poured. Use your hands to make the concrete firm. Do this the entire length of the concrete that you poured.



Step 7: Level to evenly spread the concrete mix

Step 7_1_1

Now, you need the concrete to be even. Use a wooden board or a shovel to level the concrete. You can determine how far out the concrete should go by using one of the landscaping blocks as a guide.

Step 8: Start laying the blocks

Step 8_1_1

Now that the concrete is level, it’s time to place the blocks where you’d like them to go. At this point, you should know how many blocks that you will need and how to space them. Place the blocks as quickly as possible once you put the concrete down.

Step 9: Gently press the blocks using hands

Step 9_1_1

Once the blocks are placed and everything looks good, you’ll want to press down on the landscaping blocks to ensure that they are secure in the concrete. Using your hands will be enough pressure.

Step 10: Spray thoroughly with a mist of water

Step10_1

To set the concrete, spray the concrete and landscaping blocks with water. You don’t need to completely drowned the area in water, but you should ensure that everything is thoroughly wet down. This will allow the concrete to keep the blocks in place.

Now that you have a beautiful border, you can utilize the rest of the area however you’d like. Be creative and have fun!
