Creating the Border

Step 1

Measure and mark your project area.


Before beginning any excavation, call 811 to check for underground utilities.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Add leveling sand to your trench and compact it with a tamper.

Step 4

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.

Step 5

Fill in any open spaces with the loose earth to secure the edging stones.
