    Can’t wait to get started on my project. Thank you. I hope mine will look as nice as this. Beautiful.

    Hi if you want to do this along a lawn edge with path on the other side would you need the edging on both sides to stop the concrete spreading?

  3. Stroker Ace on March 30, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    Looks great, but why does the concrete look like dry sand?

  4. Joy Jenkins on March 30, 2019 at 7:53 pm

    Since this is just set on the surface of the grass have you noticed any issues with grass runners? The biggest problem I have is keeping the grass out of my beds. I like this idea and was wondering if it would help to also sink a barrier on the outside of the edging to keep underground runners out of the beds. What are your thoughts?

    Love it! Are you using regular concrete or quick-crete?

  6. Flower Glamorous on March 30, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    Turn out great!🌺💐🌷

    That’s a good idea in the fast way don’t have to worry about moving

    I live in New England and think that frost heaving would be a real problem. That being said, I like the video.

    How well would this stand up to freeze/thaw cycles in northern states?

  10. deep5 inc on March 30, 2019 at 7:57 pm

    Nice work. What is the long black thing you shoved into the ground at the beginning of the video?

  11. Paola A. Castilla on March 30, 2019 at 7:57 pm

    It don’t look that hard. I really want to try it. Thank you. I lm saving this video.

    What type of beer should I drink between step 2 and step 4?

  13. Jovie Cortez on March 30, 2019 at 8:00 pm

    Is the curb edging better?

  15. Lori Patton on March 30, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    I’ve watched this video a number of times alongside others. This process seems easy enough for a first-timer. I am looking to use this for a border around our front lawn (adjacent to the sidewalk. Do you think it will be appropriate? Also our lawn slopes downward from the house to the sidewalk. Could this type of border become a problem over time?

  16. Swaroop Rao on March 30, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Will the project be as effective without the cement (quick-drying or otherwise)? I realize that the bricks may move a bit but I feel that the plastic/vinyl/PVC edging will provide sufficient support on one side at least.

  17. Ellie MM on March 30, 2019 at 8:02 pm

    Nice video….HOWEVER……
    Why does it seem that working with concrete doesn’t require a mask?
    Does that concrete magically stay dry when it enters your lungs and you sneeze it out, or does it turn into little stautes in your lungs, that never come out?
    If you are going to make a video, please, don’t be so nonchalant about safety. 20years from now you’ll be wondering why you can’t inhale.
    Sorry I sound like a naggy person, but it had to be said.
    Other then that, it’s a smart way to make quick edging.

  18. Sam Young on March 30, 2019 at 8:03 pm

    Would frost heave ruin the concrete at all?

  19. Justin Nguyen on March 30, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    Love your work

  20. Lin Weichold on March 30, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    also. I’m not getting the durability angle. the bricks are setting on top of concrete. not embedded. seems a weak adhesion connection. other than keeping grass from growing up between the bricks, why have the concrete at all.

  21. Jesse Flores on March 30, 2019 at 8:04 pm

    Hi, the border looks great! Do you think this same technique will work with bricks? More less how thick is the cement power laid?

  22. Donna Bowman on March 30, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    I know this is an old video, but looks great.!!!

  23. t allen on March 30, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    I like that fast easy very simple you don’t have to dig to make a trench smart

  24. Stephen Flood on March 30, 2019 at 8:07 pm

    You’re hands will be in bits if you keep putting bare cement on them,stick a pair of gloves on😉

  25. Calvin Emery on March 30, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Last question. How many bags of concrete should we get?

  26. Melaninated King on March 30, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    The excess concrete that’s laying behind the brick what do you do with that?

  27. Adan Castillo on March 30, 2019 at 8:17 pm

    Doing it this way, do the stones adhere to the concrete? Or can they be moved?

  28. Lin Weichold on March 30, 2019 at 8:17 pm

    never, ever, ever work with dry concrete without PROPER mask. extremely abrasive to lung tissue. ditto what one person said about gloves.

  29. Mixed Up With TGM on March 30, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Can I use this same technique for laying pavers if I unable to dig the depth needed for the sand and gravel?

  30. mark6020cc on March 30, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Wow thats really nice and easy.. thanks..

  31. Boris Maskirovka on March 30, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    …garden transition zone…an untidy mess…what to do…edging?…rocks?..cement? D. all the above!

  32. Jonesboro Girl33 on March 30, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    I did just what you explained in the video and my bed looks great! Everything worked out just as you showed and I’m very pleased with the results. I bought all of the same material. Thanks!!!! Did I say this was my 1st time doing anything in the yard!

  33. Pretty Pierette on March 30, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Music sounds like ‘Horse of the Year’…. a gallop around the border……..

  34. LLC on March 30, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    I’m confused, you used cement powder? No water mixed into it? This works?

  35. rockmom h on March 30, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Yeah I dont think I want to use concrete, there must be a better way to lay a border. 🤔

  36. Fi Jay on March 30, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Oh for a flat yard like you have ! I wish I could do this!

  37. onjoFilms on March 30, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    I did this and punctured 5 irritation lines, 1 gas line and one mole. Thanks!

  38. Rich C on March 30, 2019 at 8:21 pm

    Looks great but i would use sand instead of cement. Plus i like having my blocks level not just lying on the ground elevation.

  39. Nancy LaBarge on March 30, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    Finally, a video that shows you step by step instruction without all the yapping that seems so distracting. Thank you!

  40. Alaina H on March 30, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    Where do you buy the bricks?

  41. Shannon Bryant on March 30, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    How many bags of quickcrete do I need for 18×5 ft border?

  42. Calvin Emery on March 30, 2019 at 8:24 pm

    What do you do with the excess concrete behind the brick? And what exactly how far should we should we go from the lining to the garden with the concrete? Should it just be the width of the bricks? I’m glad I found this video, will be doing this soon!

  43. Carol Johnson on March 30, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    I like this idea A LOT! I am going to use it on all my new flower beds. I was going to hire it done but I think I can handle this size of brick. I hurt my back on those big ones and have suffered ever since. We bought a house & removed all the old landscaping and starting fresh. This will be great at $5 Per foot. Thanks so much for sharing this fabulous idea with the world.

  44. John RossStar on March 30, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    One thing that would make this easier is to use a dead-blow hammer to level the blocks. Smacking your hand on them all day might be an issue.

  45. HappyAgony on March 30, 2019 at 8:28 pm

    could the whole thing be sunked about 2 more inches and still be fine? id hide that black plastic border

  46. joynz1 on March 30, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    I’ve recently pulled untidy looking wooden borders and already started replacing with bricks on dirt. It looks okay cause its new but I know it won’t last and too soon I’ll end up pulling those up too. So after watching this vid I’m backtracking and starting all over again. I have no doubt its going to look great and make it look so easy. Thanks for the vid.

  47. Jay Gtz on March 30, 2019 at 8:35 pm

    Did you just say border?!?! *Triggered*

  48. JB on March 30, 2019 at 8:39 pm

    You don’t show the back side of the bricks after you pour the cement and wet it. It seems there would be an unsightly mess to clean up. How did he handle that?

  49. C Jane on March 30, 2019 at 8:40 pm

    Where did you get the metal spikes from?

  50. Iulian Faidac on March 30, 2019 at 8:42 pm

    buy this, buy that, how is that diy
