    Belgian block would be a lot better if they would position the stones like you would a single row of bricks.

    Lying flat, the long ways from the standing soldiers into the turf. But do they make Belgian blocks long enough to cover that cement "continental shelf" into the turf?

    No no, have them standing up, with the smallest side showing on top, and the broadest sides mortared together. It's an old-style arrangement that uses at least twice the stones, but hey, if you can't afford the expense, then stick with all-concrete curbs.

    aka "soldier course". But what I said about pavers lying flat was to "fix" the problem with the extra mortar that creates shallow soil for the turf close to the existing blocks as is.
