6AM project

The border around the driveway is crooked, and it's bugging me.

Any suggestions?

This is the best I could do with a mallet and crowbar lol...

Very nice work!

What do you think caused the borders to spread out like that or has it always been like that?

it's because I drive on them very often + winter LOL

When it's garbage day and the recycling and garbage is out, manouvering in and out of the driveway can be tricky... Plus, it's not like I'd take an extra second to move the containers out of the way :p

if you really want it straight,use your cut-off saw on the row beside the border .

Would some kind of concrete border also help keep them from pushing outwards?
