A: Thanks for the question! We do not have a recommendation for the weight of a rubber mallet, due to the differences in soil type. Some soils may require a heavier rubber mallet. So long as it is rubber, it should work. We do not recommend using a hammer to pound the spikes into the ground.
A: I used metal spikes because the ground was too hard for the plastic spikes.
A: I would say it depends on the type of ground you’re going into. I went into mostly sand and didn’t really need any tool. The rocks I placed after held the tabs down further.
A: I have not installed them yet. You will have to try the hammer or whatever is in the instructions or call the manufacturer.
A: I used a 32 oz
A: Because we do not manufacture artificial grass, the turf manufacturer will need to specify what adhesives should be used safely with their product. Thank you for the question and your interest in the landscape edging.
A: Hi Suzie, each tab is approximately 1.5 inches wide at the base (end closest to the wall). Thank you for your interest and for the question!
A: The number of stakes you use is key and "top of edging" can be lost in interpretation? We nailed to the base, but if too aggressive past that... the edging will start to tip. Hope this helped.
A: It will. Especially if you have mulch or gravel on it. I didn't have any problems.
A: I put pegs in closer intervals than suggested. For the most part it is still holding down. I think if you have sandy light soil it would be harder to secure them.
A: It moved around too much for my taste so I nailed it down loosely to the ground and it worked great. Also the plastic spikes break easily in rocky soil which we have so in those areas i used steel spikes. Overall it’s a great product and has held up well.
A: Hi Kelly. The installation instructions recommend to pound the top of the spike only to the top of the tab. The spike should be installed so that the underside of the head of the spike is sitting flush with the top of the tab (the piece with the hole in the middle that sits flush with the ground). This tip is to make sure that the spike isn't hammered into the ground so hard that it pulls the tab down with it into the soil. If the spike is angled down into the soil, it will pull the edging wall with it and create waves. Depending upon your soil type and climate, you may need to check the spikes periodically to make sure the soil is not pushing them up. But this is an easy fix by simply stepping on the spike head to push it back into the ground. As with all edging and landscaping projects, regular maintenance will be needed to ensure your installation continues to function properly.
