    Instructions

    Step 1

    Lay out a series of edging blocks end to end to form a mini road through a corner of your yard.

    Step 2

    Pick up one block at a time and, using a caulk gun, apply landscape adhesive to one end, then adhere it to the end of the previous block. Repeat for all edgers.

    Step 3

    Cut a roughly 1/2"-wide by 2"-long rectangle out of a plastic "Garage Sale" sign. Then, cut the bristles of a chip brush to about 1/2" long. Use the empty rectangle in the Garage Sale sign as a stencil to paint "lane divider" lines on each edger. Let dry.
