Measure and mark your project area.
Before beginning any excavation, call 811 to check for underground utilities.
Using a shovel, dig a trench along the area you marked. The trench should be roughly 2 inches to 3 inches deep, depending on your edging stones. Keep the loose earth nearby to fill in around your edging stones once you place them.
Add leveling sand to your trench and compact it with a tamper.
Place the edging stones in the trench. Use a carpenter’s level to check for level. On curved sections, you can use a torpedo level. Add sand and use a mallet to level stones as needed.
Fill in any open spaces with the loose earth to secure the edging stones.
