I want to put some type of kerbing in my garden, this will be a diy job.
Can people advise on the types available and what work would be involved?
I'm looking to create a barrier between the driveway and the lawn.
Thanks

I was hoping to avoid using the concrete kerbing as this usually involves using cement which is a no-no subject in this house at the moment, or maybe i've overcomplicated it.
Are there other options? I hear sleepers are not the way to go. I just thought someone may have other ideas.
Thanks anyway.

I believe sleepers are treated with creasote, which is now banned from sale in Ireland due to a chance it may cause cancer.
However, many timber yards now offer their own brand pressure teated railway sleepers.
Crea, you may consider a natural stone edging, limestone or granite possibly.
