Paver edging spike keeps bricks in place

Contractor Jeff Goodman has built what he says is a better paver edging spike.

Goodman, who installs landscaping and hardscaping such as walks and patios, got tired of dealing with brick pavers that separated because the edging spikes moved in the ground. So he designed one with an angled tip that stays in place better.

The tip causes the Edgetite spike to be driven into the compacted base at an angle, so the head of the spike pushes against the edging and keeps the bricks in place. Freezing and thawing of the ground only forces the spike tighter against the edging rather than pushing it away.

The spikes can be ordered from suppliers listed at www.edgetite.com. One dealer, MCP Supply, sells them for $65 a box plus $30 shipping and also offers volume pricing.
