Some advice on edging stones, please
North East England, United Kingdom
I have an idea for how to create some planting areas in my front garden which is, at the moment, a rectangle of pea shingle with a centre circle planted with a shrub and begonias (photo on my profile page). I think I'd like to create triangular beds at each corner of the rectangle. Eventually I'd like to take up the pea shingle completely and replace with some sort of paving, but as funds won't allow this at the moment, I need to use some sort of edging to the new beds to retain the shingle that will be left. I quite like the idea of using old bricks, up-ended, at an angle, but am not sure if they need to be concreted in and would like some advice - or if anyone has any other, (cheap but tasteful!) ideas I'd love to hear them.
