DIY of the week..."patio" edging

Published on 9.21.2010 in ,

Engineering Man's been bitching about weed eating around the DIY patio I set up in the backyard.

So, Friday afternoon we ran to Home Depot to pick up some edgers.

$15 later, we were back home with a DIY project.

Engineering Man started by placing the edgers around the area to get an idea of where he wanted each of them placed.

Then, using a shovel, he cut into the sod on the outside of the edger to get his edge.

Finally, he  cut out the sod around the edge of the wood chips...

He made the cut out about the size of the stone edgers...

He then tamped down each of the edgers into the cut out area around the chips...

Finally, he used the sod he had cut out to make the edgers look like they'd been there for more than 5 minutes.

Unfortunately, I didn't take an after picture...

But trust me.  It looks awesome.

My boys don't share, but if you want to...
