    My brother got this landscaping program which we were consulting. But one thing annoys me which was the fact it looks ugly and I will be the one to end up complaining on that. But thanks to [Details Here==plus.google.com/u/0/115833750156104066553/posts/PHhunDfwXqD ] this program that I found and changed everything for us

    Is the border or concrete required? Why can't you just put the rocks down?

    What do you do with all the grass part so it doesn't grow in your flower bed?

    This is a fantastic idea! Been looking for a simple/easy way to accomplish this look. It looks like a project I can do myself and I'm past the age of 70! No dig…I'm in! The one thing that concerns me, though, is…I have one area where there's a downspout that pushes the mulch downward. How do you feel this would affect the concrete? Thanks for the video.

    What is the weather like where you live. Where I live cold and warm heaves the ground and would have broken this concrete

    So what plants are planted in the bed that you show?

    Do you use a mixture of sand and cement or just cement?

    why didn't you just use paver base?

    and every inch of grass next to it has to be snipped.

    I'm missing when you use the bag of No Dig Edging. Is that before you do anything else?

    Will the No-Dig Edging work on a slope/gradual dips in the yard? Also, does Lowe/HD carry do you know? Thanks

    Im lost….why use blocks and edging? Seems like the cement and blocks would do the trick….just wondering

    So doing this! Already have blocks down but constantly have weeds grass between them and can't stand it, this is just genius. Landscape fabric never last much more than 2yrs here in fl with a 10 month growing season and constant damp ground the fabric just rots away.

    Step one…level the base!

    that's not levelled

    Why would you use concrete? That's just pointless

    not a good idea and very difficult

    Brenda C

    (June 12, 2017 - 11:35 am)

    So, how do you install 2nd, 3rd, or 4th layer of bricks on top of the 1st layer? Same procedure?

    Make it happen!

    Hands down, this is the best video I've seen on creating a border! Looks so easy! Love it

    Great video!!
    I can't wait to try! I have a question about the mulch part.
    I recently had a 24ft intex pool that ruined by the weather. So now I've taken it down and the grass underneath is dead. Could I get a 22ft pool and use the access to lay mulch or rock without having to dig? and afterwards add the rocks like in your video for a nice finish?

    Has anyone tried to do this on a sloped surface? I have about a 10 degree grade around my patio as it's built up higher due to the grade of my yard. I'm guessing I would need to dig out a big of dirt to get it level before starting the process?

    I will be doing this to my front lawn next week. This was such a well put together video. I'm so excited now!! Thank you so much for sharing your ideas.

    Love this idea. No digging. I live in the Midwest where we have severe cold and severe heat. Does the cement or do the blocks shift/crack over time?

    looks good ! i would want to have 4 or 6 inches of space to mow up to and not have to weed eat it ……. Any suggestions like bringing the concrete out a little ? thanks

    What is the thickness of the concrete?

    What are the metal spikes you used?

    I'm sure a second course can be laid upon this, if desired?

    I just did this in my back yard today. I used smaller blocks but it looks great. Thanks for the easy way to edge a flower garden.

    Used Block paving bricks worked for me same depth to top of grass so no longer need a strimmer anymore better than them being raised you still get grass strands you can't get with a strimmer in between stones

    Great Job! Just thought I'd mention that by thoroughly wetting the grass/ground before pouring the concrete from the bag would aid in the curing process. Take care!

    It looks great. Well done 👍🏼

    did you really just put those stone on dry quick concrete mix? is it really that easy???

    William Valencia

    (June 12, 2017 - 11:35 am)

    I have a road base surface that I will be installing turf on. But on the edge I'd like a 2 course raised bed. Can I just place my stones right on the compacted road base? And just glue my stones together? Or should I lay some mortar down first on top of the road base?

    Thanks for the added info! My Husband and I had talked about doing this in the backyard but he said it would take forever with all the digging. Showed him ur vid, and we're now going to do it! Thanks again!

    Our home is a yr old and I'm new at gardening and landscaping. Thanks so much for sharing this video! I'm definitely going to give it a shot! This would look great in our front yard!

    Wondering if the plastic part could face towards the back so you can't see the plastic in front that seems like it would be more aesthetically pleasing!

    I know this has been asked. But I'm late here. Why the concrete?
