    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.
