Learn how to build your own garden edge with Adbri Masonry’s Miniwall edging block. Jason Hodges will show you how simple the project is and how much of a difference it will make to your garden or backyard. www.adbrimasonry.com.au One of the easiest things you can do at home to make your gardening and mowing the lawn easy, is putting in a really good garden edge. Now, this here is called miniwall. These guys here with no lobes on the top, are mincaps and together they can really define a space for you. The best thing about them about the miniwall is because of the way they’re designed have a wide front and a narrow back but they have the same face. So, if you put them next to each other butt up, you can get nice straight lines but if you flip them around you can start to create curves. What I’ve got here is a couple of stakes that I can run a string line. Just measure off your fence, get the distance the same at both ends and it’s parallel. And then, I like to use a nice bright string line so that you don’t end up tripping over it. When I set the string line, I’m going to pull it nice and tight, I could mark it out with paint if I wanted to or if I keep it up a little bit higher I can dig underneath it and not worry about cutting through this. And being 800ml I’ve allowed about 200ml for my block and 600ml for the garden bed and that’s plenty of garden bed for a hedge that we want to get to say, two or three metres high.

    What is the white lining that you placed against the wood fence? And what are those metal looking bars that are holding the lining against the fence?

    I didn't see any moisture barrier between the fencing and the soil. Won't that rot it out more quickly?
