border/ mulch/ walkway




Looking for an idea for a border that I can place around my walkway so the mulch doesn't keep getting out.

You already have it (the concrete).

The mulch scatters on to the concrete when wildlife, kids, etc.....walk through the mulch. It also happens when its windy.

I have a very similar path. I used bricks. Square pavers would look nice I think

The issue is elevation.
The bed (soil/mulch) is too high or the concrete too low.

As I see it... your choice is to remedy one of those two or to hit it with the blower/broom now and then. Adding another material there? meh.

Border Magic and competitors extrude landscape borders to grade and shape. You can get them in many patterns and with typical concrete colorants. It is basically the same technology as curb forming machines but adapted to landscaping.
