How do I replace brick edging? How do I replace brick edging?

Brick edging will require some planning work to make the replacement look as seamless as possible. First, determine which bricks have to be removed, and then try to find replacements that match them as closely as possible. Then, use a hammer and small prybar or chisel to gently tap the brick until it comes free. Remove all of the bricks that must be replaced at one time so that the replacements match and don’t look like replacements. As noted, try to match the brick edging closely, and then drop the new bricks into the spaces of the bricks they replace. You may have to dig out earth around the new bricks to make the heights match, but you will find the extra work is worth it when you are finished with the reinstallation.
