Finally I remembered, went into the workshop, got the half-moon lawn edger, sharpened it and descended onto the enemy. I just plunged it in between the stones, straight up and down, levered a little to raise the stone, removed the garbage that grows or is planning to grow and that did it.
It should have been relatively easy, the area was quite well watered since we have had torrents of rain almost every other day. But the rain just anchored the various plants more firmly and lengthened the root systems. My ’just pulling plan’ did not have a chance. I tried an old kitchen knife, a pair of long bladed shears, my fingers, tips of the garden fork. None of these were at all efficient or good enough.
Ideally, when laying paving stones the design, size and color choices chosen should be able to integrate effortlessly into the existing landscape. And provided you do not let aesthetics interfere with the safety aspects, the design and type of paving used is only limited by your budget and imagination. Irrespective of the type of paving stone used, from a simple to complex job, it pays to take into consideration the rest of a properties landscaping to ensure the overall design fits in perfectly.
Usually the paving stones will be either rectangular or square but there are actually a large variety of different shapes and sizes. The most popular patterns that can be created with the square or rectangular shapes are the basket weave or the herringbone. By using either power or hand saws the stones can be made to fit exactly into patterns.
