That type of edging does not need jointing. They are intended to be laid close jointed (not butt-jointed) with a 2-5mm gap between adjacent units.
You *could* mortar joint them, but it does NOT make for a better construction and it most definitely does not make the slightest bit of difference to any problems with freeze-thaw.
Tell you client that, following extensive research, you've been advised that the "going rate" for mortar jointing of such edgings is 25 quid per joint.....plus VAT of course!
