We wanted something that would break up our yard and garden space. We decided on a path to break up the landscape and also help with drainage because of the slope of the back yard.

Total Time: 3 hrs.


  • metal edgers
  • rubber mallet
  • weed barrier
  • pins
  • mulch
  • plants (optional)
  • decorative gravel


  1. Decide your placement. We decided 4 feet wide would be a good path size.
  2. Ad

  3. With the metal edgers we pre loosened the ground for the edgers.
  4. The edgers were placed half way into the ground and held with metal pins that come with the edgers to secure them down.
  5. After all were placed (interlocked), the weed barrier was put down to cut back on any grass or weeds that might peek through.
  6. Add decorative gravel.

How long does the weed barrier keep the grass from growing through! Sounds great!
