Parking Spot Border

We just made a small crushed stone pad for our TT and I'm looking for advice on how people would border this. I'm thinking about those fake landscaping stone looking plastic things that interlock and have a spike to ground them. Also thought about doing those $4 landscaping logs from Home Depot but then I would have to dig a small ditch around the perimeter. Just looking to see what other people do. Thanks a lot.

I would use more pavers like what is in the first picture.

Yes it would be some work but in the end worth it IMO.

I dislike those red wooden things.

I did this for the area in front of the carport where we park the trailer,and our vehicles. I dug and leveled the area for the stone 5" deeper than the grass.Then pinned 5/4 treated in,leaveing it stick up 1.5" or so above the dirt so we could run the mower over it.Back filled the otherside with stone. Its been in there going on 8 yrs and still good. Dug out and restoned this year.Even with the sno plow running over it its fine. Probably more work than most people would go to,but it works well for us.
