Landscape edging
 
I have a quick question. A buddy of mine is making a small landscape bed. Instead of using a product like metal edging, he's using a single course of manufactured block. What's the best way to lay these so that they don't move around like when they are bumped with a lawn mower?

Thanks!

A product like pro-edge works well...

I did a forum search and google search. I didn't find anything on the forums, and there are a ton of different products from varying companys called pro-edge. Do you know where I can fine this?

Thanks,

David

Take a look at this and see if it will fit into the scheme. Look at the paver edging instead of the landscape edging.

Sorry, I couldn't find it on the web either, I picked it up at my local landscape centre but the product is very much like what SecretSquirrel posted.

It depends on what you mean by "block."

If you mean brick, just dig a trench and pour a small footing (4" x 4") - it would help to add some rebar down to a depth of a foot or so every couple of feet - deeper if freezing is a factor. A word of warning, though - the top of the footing will be level. Is the ground level?
