I have a bunch of extra bricks (actually leftover from the construction
of the house) that is used as a garden barrier.
what I want to know if there is something that I can fill the 3 holes of
each brick. I'd like to keep out the dirt, weeds and insects that fill
up some of the holes.
Zizzle that Fire - it's Zizzle Time !!!!!!!
If you lay the bricks down with holes vertical. I think you can use
patio block gap filling specially treated sand. They are treated and it
acts like epoxy, as well as week killer(choking them out).

If you live somewhere that has tile roofs you can go to a yard that
sells the tiles and get a small bag of red roof tile mortar that will
match the brick fairly well. You can trowel it in with a 4" drywall
knife and strike it off flat. A quick wipe with a wet grout sponge
would get all the excess off, depending on how pretty you need it.
That'd take a Whole Lotta Brick, for a border around a garden. I put
this in the 'life is too short' category- OP should splurge and go buy
some proper edging bricks for his garden. The money and time to fill all
those holes will be a lot more than he thinks. Wash and stack the extra
house brick in a corner of garage or basement or shed- never know when
it will come in handy to repair or alter a wall.
