    I've used Beast edging for patios but not a residential driveway. I'm using 99% crushed RCA for base and it will setup hard. Can I use plastic edge restraints or am I asking for trouble? If I do use plastic edging how close should I spike the edging?

    Thanks in advance.

    why are you installing a driveway over that base?

    plastic edging is fine. your asking for trouble by not using dense grade and sand.

    Yes. I'm planning in using 1" of sand but I was worried about the plastic edging and how it holds up.
