liza, i just heard about a way to do this and have started a garden path in my yard as well. i’m doing a full on brick path with a border. to do this, i placed my bricks. used a sharp shooter to mark the edges. removed the brick. dug out a rut for the path. cut and placed a weed block fabric. added sand and leveled it off (so that the bricks would be just barely above the ground height. placed the bricks. added some sand to fill the space between the bricks.
i’m a diy’er, and have no experience. i probably wouldn’t have even added my comment if anyone had responded, for fear that i would steer you wrong. good luck!!
