There were no established flowerbeds or walkways in the front of my house. There was however a buried brick sidewalk in the back yard that was no longer needed. I decided to repurpose those rather than buy edging or have concrete poured.
Brick Sidewalk & Flowerbed
You will need to have a level sandy area to lay the brick. Spread the dirt, and use a rake to level.
Gather brick and unload them near worksite.
Begin laying bricks. Tap them from each side as you go to ensure a tight fit.
Continue adding rows and making sure it’s tight as you go. I used a board and sledge hammer every few rows to help tighten. You may have to play around with the placement of the brick. I changed it up a bit after seeing the first few rows laid.
I decided to make a border on each side by turning the bricks.
I curved the walkway to meet up with driveway. Then I installed a border around the flower beds. I added mulch to help prevent weeds.
Add bricks till complete. I watered down with a hose and avoided walking on it for several hours.
