+ METHOD OF INSTALLATION
  1. Locate border line of edging with string or other means to assure border straightness and curves as designed. Dig landscape trench 1” (25mm) deeper than the edging being set.
  2. Set the edging into the landscape trench with the top 1/2” (12.5cm) above what will become the compacted finish grade. (The installer can connect the adjacent sections of the edging prior to or after the sections are placed in the trench.)
  3. Where connections are needed on curves, the installer will find that connecting sections prior to installing will allow for faster completion.
  4. Start at the beginning of the bed area and begin driving the 12” (30.5cm) aluminum stakes.
  5. Connect adjacent edging sections by sliding the ends into each other with a minimum of 2 inches (50.8mm) of overlap. (See Diagram A)
  6. At the end of the bed area, cut the section to the desired length and stake down. Begin your next bed area with the remaining portion of the cut section. (See Diagram B)
  7. FORMING ANGLES: Cut the bottom of the edging halfway up using a hacksaw, lay on a hard surface placing a brick or 4 x 4 over the cut. Bend up to the desired angle using a hammer to stiffen angle. This forms a 1/2” radius on top avoiding sharp corners.
  8. The edging is normally installed with the stakes on the inside of the landscape bed area (Diagram B).
  9. For an installation with smoother curves, connect 3 to 4 sections together before placing edging into the trench (Diagram A).
  10. It is ideal to have another person hold the edging while you are staking it into place, but not necessary.
  11. Keep sliding the sections together well ahead of the staking.
