Any ideas what I can do with landscape brick? I am thinking of using it as edging in my flower beds, as I was going to expand them this year. Has anyone done this? Any tips? Do you put them in sideways to have an edge or lay them flat?

Okay, Im jealous, I'm SLOWLY collecting stones and other bricks for my beds and paths so thats great you've got extra to work with. If you are expanding a few different areas how about trying the edging a few different ways to provide interest? You could sink them around the border of one bed and let your perennials spill over them, almost like an old path and you could layer them a couple high sideways in another area to give your bed some height? If you keep it low you don't even need to use morter or anything I believe, just dry stack them.

I am not sure how you are planning to lay the brick around your beds, however, I do know a way (incase you have not seen it this way or used them in this way)...Instead of, just laying the brick...You can dig a small trench and lay the bricks in it where they are at a angle, covering the bottom corner of the brick where the top corner sticks up from the ground...It just makes it way more attractive than just simply laying them on the ground...Just make sure as you bury them you do this at a "angle" where they are almost like domino's...that stick up at a slant out of the ground...Hope this helps with a idea on how to lay them with a little more curb appeal!!!
