Hi all,

I'm in the process of re-designing my garden, which is almost entirely covered in mono block. I'm looking to lay decking tiles and artificial turf. One of the issues I'm facing, however, is how to create edging against which the artificial turf can be laid, as this will need to be somehow laid on, and secured to, the paving (for three of the sides there isn't a stable wall that can be used as an edge, or soil that edging can be driven into). Given that I have a toddler, I'd like to use wooden edging - specifically railway sleepers around the perimeter of the area and 44x44mm Redwood PSE Treated Timber around the decking tiles.

My questions are: what's the best way of securing this wooden edging to the mono block paving? Is there a good adhesive that will do the trick? Perhaps there are brackets that can be drilled into the paving, or would this crack the bricks or lead to them being pulled out? Or, is this simply a terrible idea?!

Thanks in advance,
Red Leaf

If the mono block does't already have an edging then a trench filled with cement and the sleepers with long screws in underside buried into the wet cement.
