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!

David

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.

What's a "Tool?"

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?
