Is paver edging necessary?
Edging is a crucial part of any paver installation. Without it, your pavers will be much more likely to spread and sink over time. Unless your pavers are installed with the edges touching another solid surface (a curb, driveway edge or a wall), you should have edging installed along the whole perimeter.
How do you keep edging pavers from sinking?
Brick, Paver or Stone Edging
Fill the trench with 2 to 3 inches of gravel or crushed rock and pack it down firmly with a hand tamper until level; the compacted gravel creates a well-drained, sturdy base that prevents the edging materials from sinking over time.
How do you secure edging stones?
- Measure and mark your project area. Caution.
- Using a shovel, dig a trench along the area you marked.
- Add leveling sand to your trench and compact it with a tamper.
- Place the edging stones in the trench.
- Fill in any open spaces with the loose earth to secure the edging stones.
