Your post reminded me of this video. The edge pieces are at 5:55.

Uni-decor paves as shown in those pavors will work. You can also use standard 4"x8" pavers. For ease of installation that is what I would use if you are not experienced or do not have a saw to cut the pavers.

paver patio edging


For any real paver installation, you need an edge restraining to prevent lateral movement, separation and loss of strength. Common edge restraints are flexible plastic, aluminum and steel that can be set at any height as long as the have enough embedment in the soil to be stable. Often spikes work, but a buried concrete curb might work depending on the situation.

thanx. i am, so far, going to use the pavers that are already down. i am going to move that patio out about 4-5'. and raise the side towards the house, for drainage. the side by the yard will be about grade height. but the house side, i have to raise that 8-12" (haven't figured that out yet). and i have yet to figure out the edge restaint for the house side.

I recently put down paving myself. I set pavers in concrete for the edge, much the same as these guys do: http://www.pavingexpert.com/edging1.htm

There's a goldmine of useful info on that site :-)
