I constantly have mulch coming onto my driveway and walkway. I need a simple and clean edge to keep things in place.
I thought about using a hard edge… putting bricks along the side of my walkway… but that is a lot of material and pain.
I decided to just buy a simple NO DIG edging product. Here it is.
+ The No Dig Kit. It comes with some 8in plastic spikes.
+ I used a plastic mallet for brick work. You can use a hammer.
+ I bought some extra 10in metal spikes (left over from a previous project)
**NOTE** – HomeTalk seems to add their own links to items with links to give them a referral credit. I cannot control that. The items they list are not always the correct ones… so just keep that in mind when you go looking for parts. Reach out to me if you have any question at all. I respond quick.
I have stood outside during a torrential rain storm (under and umbrella) and watched how well this works. Rain passes under the edging… so the mulch does not float away. My mulch is on a graded hill though and I have some rocks under the mulch to help water flow. This has held up well. The occasional mulch comes over from wind… but all in all it holds them back well. I have noticed on hot days the edging can flax a bit… so the more spikes you use closer together, the less issue you should have. It is nice and flexible… I did not want a hard edge in case you drive on or step on it (By accident).
