Garden mowing strip - Please advise


I have tried to put a garden mowing strip myself, using bricks and ready mixed concrete. The results are as per attached.

It is not looking very impressive and I need advice as to whether I should try and salvage the project (sand the concrete maybe to clean it) or give up and get it done professionally.

Many thanks in advance.









  • You need to lay the bricks closer together it might be worth laying them on end and point the bricks up also use sharp sand and cerment
  • Thank you very much. I was very angry with myself but now I feel a bit better.

  • richhondac, on the spacing between the bricks, I have to stick with the same pattern as I have already done on the first patch. Otherwise, wouldn't it look weird?

    That will soon soften in appearance Kashif, new cement always looks glaring but it won't last
