Edge restraints along a walkway

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:29 AM by Administrator

We design and build our walkways with manufactured concrete pavers that are secured on top of compacted crush stone by plastic edge restraints. We secure the edge restraints into the base material with 10″ steel spikes as we have found this method to provide a stable long-lasting edge. As you can see from the following picture, the edge restraints are set below the top of the paver as we do not want to see the edge restraints. Once the edge restraints are secured then we compacted the pavers and backfill the area outside of the walkway with freshly screened loam. The height of loam or mulch is the same as the paver therefore you do not see the edge restraints.

Edge restraints with 10" spikes keep the pavers from moving
