Bricks for lawn edging

Hi, Steve...I would suggest that be sure your bricks are not porous, otherwise they will crumble with frost.

The mortar mix will be 4 parts sand to 1 part cement.....adding a few drops (no more) of washing-up liquid will give the mixture elasticity and thereby be easier to spread.

PS. tell the builder's merchant that you need the sand for brick laying, as there are several different types for specific uses.

The active ingredient for killing moss would probably be sulphate of iron.....this does have the characteristic of turning patches of moss black.

On the other hand I would rather agree with punkdoc, maybe you have used too much.
