Need Flower Bed Border Ideas?

Flower Bed Around The House

I need to replace the wood with landscaping bricks. I am not sure what color or size to use.

Should I coordinate with the brick, contrast it to the brick or a dark color to anchor the house?

Answer
Hi Janette
I think a darker color brick would work well here.
For the size of bricks I would use a 4" or 6"
tall brick and 6" long.

I would make sure that the bricks where 6 to 8 inches above the turf. Depending on the height of the brick you might have to have 3 rows to do this.

Remember that bricks will settle, so make sure to tap and compact the ground under the bricks.

If you cannot find interlocking bricks, make sure to glue your bricks together.

What ever you decide to do, please send a finished picture, I would love to see it.

Thanks for visiting backyard landscape ideas
