Oakstone Timber Planter is a handmade stone product. These authentic Oakstone Timber Planter sections, provide a simple solution to creating a raised planter bed. They can be dry laid flat or can be stood on their sides to create a stylish traditional planter. We would recommend using a mortar or adhesive bed when laying sections on their side for safety reasons. Please note that these are reproduction timbers, and will not rot. The Oakstone Timber Planter sections can also be used as path edging, steps, or stepping stones.
Use Traditional stone border edging as a border to help keep the flower beds nice and tidy, or as edging along a winding garden path. Enhance the look of your driveway and front door path with the use of decorative edging. Lay the edging in a bed of mortar with approximately a little under half of the height showing proud above the surface edge. It is possible to avoid using mortar where the ground is firm and by pushing the edging into the ground along the border edge. However, we would always recommend fixing with a bed of mortar.
The necessity of path edging
Do paths always need edging? The short answer to this question would be no, however, path edging not only looks good, but it is practical at the same time. Path edging helps to keep the structure of the path defined and gravel contained. Without good edging the sides of the path would degrade, borders and weeds would creep in, and the whole path would gradually spread.
