These garden ornaments are both fun and serve a function in the garden. Decorate brick pavers to use as neat edging around your garden beds or pathways.
What You Need:
- Brick pavers
- Mortar mix
- Crushed, colored, recycled glass
- Rubber gloves
1. Plan ahead. Determine the number of pavers you will need by measuring the distance to be edged and dividing it by the length of a paver.
2. Mix mortar. Complete this step (and the next two) in a wheelbarrow, and simply hose it out when you're done. Wear rubber gloves. For every two bricks, blend approximately 1 cup mortar mix with water to make a thick paste (similar to pancake batter). Stir minimally with a trowel or your fingers. If mixed mortar begins to dry while you're working, add a bit more water. Avoid overstirring; it weakens finished mortar.
