Paver Edging with Concrete

See it on youtube

Learn how to make a garden paver edge using concrete. I have seen many ways on youtube on how to make a garden edge. Some really simple, others take more time. For my edge I wanted it to serve a few purposes. I want it to keep the grass runners out of my garden bed. I wanted the edge to not move when I walk on it, and it needs to look neat by keeping in a straight line. And finally an easy way for the lawn mower to mow the grass around the edge. If these requirements are what your looking for in doing your own edge, then this youtube video is for you.
