Step 6: Install Edging

To keep the pebbles from slipping into the surrounding landscape, you'll need to install edging. For a clean, minimalist look, a narrow strip of black metal works well. For a country cottage ambience, use brick-shaped pavers that coordinate with your stepping stones. Dig a trench that allows you to place the edging material deep enough so it won't be a tripping hazard. The top of the edging should be just an inch above the pebbles.
