Belgian Tumbled Edger

We utilize these as needed on essentially linear (straight lined beds) beds.

They measure 4 1/2″ x 12″ x 3 1/2″ and are made of concrete.  They work nicely when you are after a more stylish edge than that of plastic edging.  They come in (4) colors which are represented below as:  Autumn Blend, Quarry Gray, Sienna, and Tan.  Note:  heavy riding lawn mowers can alter or move these over time.


Interloc Edgers 3-3/8″ x 12″ x 3-3/8″

We also utilize these types of concrete brick edgers.  They are essentially what we go to if the bed is going to have some curvature to it.  The colors represented below by the pictures are:  Gray, Red, Red/Black, and Tan.

Note:  these can be damaged by riding lawn mowers as well.

Wallstone, Boulders and Flagstone:

  • Drywall Loose fit Stone:  12 to 15 face feet per ton or (1 ton will build a wall of approximately 1’x1’x15′)
  • Boulders for purpose of retaining soil (boulder wall):  5 face feet per ton
  • Granite boulders range 150-200 lb’s per cubic foot.  (there fore a roundish boulder of 2’x2’x3′ could weigh approximately 1 ton)
  • Flagstone 1″ thick = about 13 pounds per square foot (approximately 150 square feet per ton)
  • Flagstone 1.5″ thick = about 20 pounds per square foot (approximately 100 square feet per ton)
