DIY Garden Edging with Pavers


DIY Garden Edging with Pavers

Chris and I decided that our flower bed needed an upgrade with a edging of stone. We have never done this before so we went turned to Pinterest! We found out some amazing tips especially for Florida soil and grass. We still have to upgrade our plants and relay mulch once we complete this project.


The first thing we did was select two different stones at Lowes to see which we preferred. We did a quick Instagram and family poll and decided to use the smaller stones which had a more organic look which we liked.

Once we decided we dug a trench the whole length of the garden pulling back grass where needed and then Chris bought the pavers and bags of quick setting sand.

While he was at Lowes getting the pavers, I used a paint stick to measure the height of the stone that we wanted and packed the ground and dirt to prepare for the cement and pavers.

Chris worked with the concrete to lay it down. It is very dusty and requires proper protection gear such as mask, goggles and gloves. I followed behind him to lay the pavers and ensure they were even. While we were digging we found traces of the old Oak tree roots, this was a bit of a setback, but luckily they were soft and easily removable.

Began placing pavers.

I continued placing the pavers along the line we had dug adding a slight curve, and working with the tough Florida grass.

As we neared the end, Chris used the hose on mister setting to water the pavers and set the concrete. We will be placing the dirt. back over the dried concrete replace lost plants with new ones. Once complete we will mulch!
