What are the benefits of edging?
Edging, also known as edging or border edging, offers several benefits in the garden. They provide a neat and tidy finish to garden beds, lawns and paths. This prevents grass or other plants from spreading wildly, giving the garden a neater look without requiring much maintenance. Moreover, edging with different heights can help create various levels in the garden.
An additional advantage of edging is that it is easy to install yourself. In addition, an edge fence is durable and often lasts for years.
How do you install an edge fence?
The installation of an edge fence can vary, depending on the type of edge fence you want to use. In general, however, there are a few steps you can follow to install an edge fence:
Preparation: Mark the spot where you want to install the edge fence and remove any existing vegetation or soil to create a level surface.
Dig a trench: Dig a trench along the desired line for the edging. The depth and width of the trench may vary depending on the type of edging you use. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for specific dimensions.
Place the edging: Place the edging in the trench and make sure it is properly aligned. If necessary, fill the space behind the edge fence with sand or gravel to provide stability.
Secure the edge fence: Depending on the type of edge fence you use, there may be different methods of securing it. This could include using pop rivets, self-drilling screws, picket stakes or anchor pins.
Finish: Check that the edging is firmly fixed and straight. If necessary, further fill the space behind the edge fence with soil or gravel and level the ground on both sides of the edge fence.
It is important to follow the specific instructions as these may vary depending on the material and design of the edge fence. In addition, we will be happy to help you with any questions or comments.
