    You could drive rebar on either side of them to keep them upright. OR, dig a trough on at least one side and pour cement in. I made a beautiful rock border with cement edging to making it easy to mow around and keep the weeds out of the rocks.

    Sounds like they were not properly installed.You will have to re-dig the area in place them back in filling in with soil

    Dig into the ground a couple inches then put the edging in. Finally pushing the ground up against the edging.

    Dig them in a bit, that will stabilize them.

    DIG A TRENCH TO LAY THE EDGES FIRMLY IN PLACE AND BACK FILL WITH DIRT, LINED UP EVENLY THEY SHOULD REMAIN IN PLACE

    Like others said dig a trench but that makes them pretty low. Try glueing them together on the ends with cement glue. That should hold them together.

    Stakes are a quick fix but not necessarily permanent. Ideally pouring a concrete footing to place the edging on would be best but expensive and complex.

    They were suppose to have rods in them that would keep them in place. Whoever did this job failed the test !!!

    I was brain dead for a second, rebar was what should have been used.
