Lawn edging advice

What is the most effective way to create an edge between a lawn and gravel, for two people who are relative novices at this kind of thing?

A variety of materials can be used to create an edge to a lawn such as; brick, block and timber. I prefer a block edge as it provides a solid edge for mowing over and separates the gravel from the grass.

Cut away some lawn and lay the blocks on a semi-dry concrete base. Remember to set the blocks slightly lower than the lawn height so as not to catch the mower blades.
