How to Install Edging

How to Install Edging:
  • Choose your edging: a solid roll of plastic or rubber edging, or individual pavers. Pavers are more durable and offer a finished look.
  • Use a garden hose or string to define your desired shape and mark with landscape marking paint.
  • Kill grass under the marked area with an herbicide.
  • Dig a trench to appropriate depth and width of edging.
  • Lay or place edging deep enough so a lawn mower’s wheels can smoothly run over it and to avoid tripping hazards.
  • Using a level, ensure edging is even and flush with surrounding soil.
  • Hammer in staples to secure rubber or plastic edging.
