How to use ceramic tile for lawn & mowing edge that’s durable?

by Sp
I have lots of leftover ceramic tile. Various sizes. I’d like to use it for lawn edging for a new project. My hubby wants me to have a mowing edge as he hates to weed eat.

    You can shove anything into the ground that you want. Standing tile on its edge in a groove in the ground will look okay for a season. Because it is individual pieces (12"?) there will be nothing to keep them together so changes in weather, especially if you live where it freezes in the winter or occasionally has heavy rains, will cause them to move individually.

    You could attach the tile to a vinyl edging to keep them in place, but then why not just use the vinyl edging and save all of the work of trying to glue the ceramic on? Same goes if you decide to pour a concrete curb. No reason to attach the tile.
