Satisfying job done in the garden today.
The edge of my 'meadow' lawn where it meets the road has always suffered from soil washing off because of the slight slope at the edge.So today I made a brick edge to help keep the soil in place.No decent rain for nearly 4 months so lawn is suffering right now.
Already had the bricks so all done for nothing!I am gradually adding Achillea millefolium along the edge as well to help with the soil retention.

    Looks beautiful, but as a parent of small boys those jags make me shudder.   :#. Ouch.  😃. Glad it works for your situation.. and will certainly keep the dirt in.

    I like that, reminds me of my nan's garden  :)
    Should do the job nicely.

    Very neat and tidy, I love brick edging like that.
