    The only thing I could suggest would be something like bricks held in place with some type of liquid nail.

    Glue down bricks, pavers, landscape blocks with concrete adhesive caulk.

    A “ramp” to me means, cars/trucks drive on it. yes? If this is a commercial or industrial ramp, get a pro involved. There can be drainage issues and even ADA in commercial applications and the City will enforce them.

    If you really want concrete, then I would buy 1/2” rebar (no rust), a 3/4” masonry drill bit, 2 part epoxy and “set dowels” with the rebar, 24” OC.

    Before that, if the concrete is old, then my rustic acid etch with a diluted solution.

    Then set forms with 2x6 or 1x6, if you can stake it.

    Ive seen pros hand form concrete curbs as well. It’s a matter of one’s hand-eye coordination and what PSI concrete you have access to.

    Hi Maria, there are a few places that carry little curbs, like this

    You could also use some cement mix to make a curb on it, or go to to your home improvement store and pick up some blocks and make a curb with those
