    I have a customer who is having us install a new gravel drive at their 120 year old Victoria house. She is looking for sometime of edging along the drive. Our first thought was some type of brick paver set in mortar along edge, but now thinking maybe some tumbled unilock brussels block laid on edge. Any ideas?:)

    Try something that goes with the period the home was built like maybe flagstone or belgium block.

    i just did a driveway edge with it. looks nice. we set them in mortar and built it up around the edges but kept the joints dry.

    Jumbo cobblestones on end, mortar or dry set.
