What You Need:

  • Commercial brick edging and spikes
  • Crushed rock and sand

Instructions:

Steps 2-3.

1. Create the base. Strip out soil 4 to 10 inches deep; lay down a few inches of rock and then a couple inches of sand.

2. Add the edging. Anchor the edging atop the sand.

You can also use stone to create a raised bed; click here to learn how.

Step 4.

3. Lay the bricks. Position the first row of bricks against the edging.

4. Finish. Nail down the outer edging as you lay the last row of bricks.
