How do I edge a tarmac drive well enough to drive over?

    I currently have a small tarmac drive with no edging between it and the adjacent lawn. I'm going to dig up the lawn and lay gravel down as a driveway extension. What is the best method to edge the tarmac as to stop it from crumbling under constant vehicle movement?

    Once I've hardcored the area to be graveled, can I lay block pavers along the edge of the tarmac, on top of the wackered hardcore, set into a bed of sand and cement and then gravel behind them? Or will these move?
  2. It will be okay, flaunch up the back of paviors.

    A 6" x 2" edging stone will be a lot stronger long term.

    How deep would the bed of cement and sand need to be to be strong enough for a car?

    Hmmm! I don't much like the idea of gravel next to hard edge(not that I have a better solution) but I see there will always be the problem of gravel displacement and a hard bump at the edge, Also the gravel driven up onto the tarmac and pressed in to the edge.

    Mr. HandyAndy - Really
