Marking thread and brick arrangement.

Fixing of paver blocks and bricks steps for Garden Landscaping

Here we learn basic garden landscaping design. Not that high-end architectural sober designs. It will be hard to understand in the beginning.

First of all, see the above image for reference. After marking the lines, start digging line by line with “kodali (garden hoe)” and before starting the digging job, remove the thread. Let the marking bar on their space just remove the thread or plastic sutali.

We need to remove the thread before digging because if you dig with “kodali” it may cut the plastic sutali. Don’t go for curvey designs at the start of your first project go simple with straight designs.

For example, you have to dig one 10 feet line so first remove the making thread/ plastic sutali. Then let bar at both ends on their place. Dig how deep you want to as per your paver or brick size.

Now as per your design, you decide by what material you are going to make borders from means you are using bricks or paver blocks, or small walls (one or two feet in height).

For example, if you are using brick then you have to dig its half of the height (horizontally or vertically).

Because we bury half of the bricks by their height ( as per the design you can bury by vertically or horizontally) in the soil for their proper fixture in the soil/ land. As per your design, you can use a paver block also.

After digging now tie the removed thread and adjust the height of the thread from the soil level that how much brick gets in the soil and what part is outside. And now following the thread correctly put bricks one by one in line.

Fix the surrounding soil after completing the one line. This is how your marking or periphery of the garden gets completed.

During this step of DIY garden development, you also need to add walk paths, civil structures, rocky features, a fountain, a small pond, etc. Everything needs to complete in this step before starting any green work/planting.

It gives the actual shape of the garden so you can decide what to plant as per design. Which gives a permanent shape to your garden as well as a complete look. It divides garden features or segments like lawns, ornamental plants, kitchen gardens, and tree plants in a good eye-catching manner.

This will not give you an instant look in the initial stage, because plants, lawns, etc are in the initial stage and not well grown except if you plant well grown good height plants or lawn blocks.
