- Mark the bed by laying a garden hose around the perimeter. Pour sand on the top of the hose and remove the hose to get a clear line.
- Then, dig a trench 2” wider than the stones and 3” deep.
- Fill with 2” of gravel and tamp firm with a hand tamper and after that add sand.
- Now it’s time to set the first row of stones butted against each other. Set the second and subsequent stones on top.
- Fill the bed with light topsoil with plenty of peat moss so that it can drain easily.
