Default Concrete prob. - fence post base - gravel walkway

P { margin-bottom: 0.08in; } Hi everybody

I'm trying to install a Pea Gravel walkway with flexible edging on the sides and bricks on each end.

Issues

Fence post concrete is in the way of digging the bed under gate.

What do I do? I can't move or remove the posts.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Here's an example of what I'm trying to do.

Ya sometimes the best plans just don't work, Hammer and chisel the concrete just enough so you can put your brick on a little sand.

You could make the path just a little wider - or narrower - than the gate. The pea gravel will fill around the posts.
