need advice, pavers around natural stone wall

Put up a natural stone wall and need to put down pavers at the base. At the base the natural rocks curve so it is not a straight line. So should I use edging and fill in the areas that would not be covered by pavers? or cut pavers so they follow the contour of the rocks. I am concerned without edging the pavers will spread over time.

Just keep the brick a few inches in off the stone and fill the sides with some fish tank gravel afterwards

Ya but you hafta use the pink fish tank gravel not the blue fish tank gravel, pink shows up better in the black light, you are installing a black light right????


No dude, seriously.... choose your pattern install the pavers as close as possible fill the small gaps with stone dust. It will match the round field stone.. stay out of the pet store.... I did say small gaps right?

Good idea, but the walk is narrower than it looks. But have seen something similar with small stones in concrete about 2 inches wide that might work. Concerned about the frost freeze cycles here.
