Lawn & Garden Edging

Whether for neatening up flower beds, pronouncing garden paths or acting as patio edging between pavers and grass, garden edging offers many uses and options for your outside spaces.

You can get creative when you lay some of our garden edging stones, too. Although many should be laid upright, there are some lawn edging stones that look great both upright and flat. A prime example of this is out Bradstone natural sandstone garden edging, which can serve as either lawn edging when upright or mowing strips when laid flat.

However you lay them, garden edging stones bring form and function to your garden. Not only do they look great, but they also make any surrounding grass easier to maintain with a lawnmower.

Whatever purpose you’re looking to fulfil with your lawn edging stones, you’ll find plenty of options to choose between below with everything available from old riven lawn edging stones to rusting rope garden borders.

How to use lawn and garden edging stones


  • Lawn edging stones aren’t just for gardens and flower beds, they’re great for pathways too.
  • It’s simple to lay bricks for garden edging, only requiring a base of concrete and minimal tools.


How to lay bricks for garden edging


While there are several ways to lay garden edging, we would recommend fixing the stones onto a concrete bed. This gives the edging a strong foundation, preventing them from coming loose over time.


To do this, you’ll first need to create that solid concrete base. Start by excavating the area where you want to lay your garden edging, digging a small trench that runs the length of your lawn, path or patio. Then mix your mortar and apply a thick layer onto the trench. You can now sit your edging stones onto the mortar, before it dries. 


Next, settle the edging stones into the mortar. Do so with a rubber mallet, gently tapping them into the base until they’re evenly laid. When you’re satisfied with how the garden edging is settled, finish the process by raking border soil up to the edging stones. Leave them for a few days until the mortar solidifies. Job done!
