Use three parts sand to one part cement, and place a thin layer of it in the bottom of the trench. Lay the bricks on top, and use a rubber mallet to tap them down, ensuring that they are level.
Using the same ratio of sand to cement, brush it between the gaps in the bricks with a trowel or brush. Wet the mortar by sprinkling water over the bricks using a watering can.
Rounded lawn spaces will require a slightly different process. Mark off the mowing strip using a garden hose or a line of sand. Place the bricks along the inner curve; the space between the bricks will be wider at the mowing strip's outer edge.
