Opinions Wanted: Does my pavers need edge course?


Well, this is an aethetic thing but I really appreciate whatever input you have.

I am building a patio in my packyard ~700 sq-ft. I am using a pavers shown in the photos attached. I chose the smaller version of the paver modules (top portion of the photo). Three different paver sizes in this module: 3x6, 6x6 and 6x9.

Somebody was recommending to not use edge course at all. How do you like the idea of without edge course?

Personally, with a random sort of pattern like that? A formal edging course would look goofy.

You do need to hold that pattern in place with something though. Or it will look goofy if it gets to move at all.

Got it. It's the dealer who recommends not using edging course at all. Of course, I will use edgers with 12" nails to hold them on the edges. Thanks for the input. It's my first time doing pavers so I have no idea.

will the patio be square or circular? If it is square you probably don't need an edge, but if it is circular, you'll need to make sure you tidy it up with a row (soldier or sailor course of pavers)
