This half-moon lawn edger is of course long handled so that all the work is done standing up instead of kneeling or bent over double. While cleaning up between stones of course I also edged along the grass side so that now we can see where grass is meant to be and where stones take over. This method is possible for a quite small area. I certainly wouldn’t want to do it for a paved patio or long walkway.
If you decide to go ahead with installation yourself it will require some time and effort to ensure that it is done correctly. One of the first things that you will need to do is make sure that the area where the paving stones are going to be installed is mapped out carefully so you can devise a pattern. Next you have to make sure that the ground is cut, compacted, and leveled so the paver stones you are going to use will lie on a flat surface.
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.
If the stones are to be set in mortar then planning in advance is extremely advantageous. Any mistakes made in this type of stone laying are very hard to correct. Also, always take into consideration any problems with drainage and give the walk a gentle slope so that puddles will not gather especially in areas that have heavy rainfall.
