I think I've talked about this before, but never got much action on the subject. As most of you know, I'm over in Germany for a few years. I'm trying to get them to convert over to some type of flexible restraint so you can install one side after you lay your sidewalk or patio, etc. The problem I'm having is that for the past gazillion years, the Germans have used concrete edges (border stone) that are poured around with concrete and then lay the pavers and do way tooo much cutting in my opinion!! We did a sidewalk along side a new road we were building at the same time (there is a slideshow posted in the messages section of my website if you'd like to see what I'm talking about) and we had to work with our installed curb on one side, and of course, this boarderstone on the other. I made a little "jig" (the same thing I used as my "speed base" with some alterations) to space the blocks just far enough apart for no cutting, we also used the good old stringline, which always seems to fail us Anyway, that was the best way I've found here to get those boarderstones spaced so I don't have to cut any pavers. It was much closer than just string lines, but still a little bit off. Has anyone ever used this method of edge restraints? Or any tips on doing them just right?? Hopefully I can talk them into the flexible plastic product restarints this year. We'll see what happens. I'd appreciate any and all help on this topic! Thanks in Advance!
