Last fall we decided to install pavers for the foundation of our future shed. The process of laying the pavers was pretty easy but we found out after that we did not add paver edging. If you’re wondering, edging is normally a plastic that helps hold the paver in place along the edges. So we skipped that step (really forgot it) hoping the pavers would not move. In the end, we decided to add the paver edging so this is how we did just that.
ADDING PAVER EDGING
- paver edging
- something to cut the edging
Normally you would add this while you install the pavers but we like to do things different or harder. So this is how to secure pavers after their installed from moving. Here is what we were working with.
Being very careful, remove enough dirt next to the paver to be able to place the edging. TIP: Only work in one section at a time!
Then install the edging like their instructions. The edging we used had us hammer plastic stakes into the ground.
Once the edging is in place cover it up with dirt, grass, or whatever was there before. We decided to add gravel around our shed. So we placed another edging against dirt then a thin layer of gravel.
Add the rest of the edging to all the pavers. I hope this will help you fix your moving paver problems.
PS. We started our shed and I can’t want to share it with you.
