Garden Edging Stone Bluestone Pavers

Garden Edging Stone – Outdoor Bluestone Pavers

Apprehensive of using stone to make DIY garden edging stone? This garden edging outdoor Bluestone in our display area was made by a 19 year old with no landscaping or gardening experience at all.

  1. First a 20cm deep trench was dug & then crusher dust was shovelled in to a depth of around 15cm.
  2. Placed the ‪‎Bluestone/Basalt‬ into the crusher dust. A string line was used to make sure each Bluestone pitcher was level.
  3. After all the Basalt/Bluestone pitchers were laid a slurry or mortar was placed against the back of the pitchers to stop them moving. (in case a car backed into them in our car park).

Achievable gardens

This is a contemporary Australian garden, designed to allow you to escape from the stress of your everyday life.

It is a harmonious space where you can step into another world inhabited by the local wildlife, feeling a sense of calm and connectedness.

Garden sizes are getting smaller, but this shouldn’t impact upon the feel of your garden or the safe haven that can be created for the local wildlife, who need this as a way to combat their fast diminishing natural habitat.

Focusing on a multi-layering of Australian native plants and some exotic plants, this is a contemporary spin designed to attract local birdlife, butterflies and other wildlife.

This space is all about creating a garden that allows you to connect to nature whilst enjoying the benefits this has on your health and wellbeing.
