Create a near-invisible edge between your lawn and flower beds, etc. Prevents grass roots spreading and helps contain your garden soil, mulch or bark. It is easy to install and maintenance-free. At 5mm thick it’s strong but flexible.
It comes in several widths 100mm, 150mm, 200mm and 300mm wide in rolls of 10m or 20m long.
Made here in NZ from 100% recycled plastic. UV stabilised for longer life and coloured black. Will not rot or leach chemicals. Get this if you want to feel good about chipping away at the plastic mountain! It is also recyclable.
Other uses include:
- Place around tree trunk
- Barrier against treated timber; eg to keep your raised veggie garden toxin-free
- Helps retain moisture in soil
- Can stop roots spreading sideways
- Pathway edging
- Concreting forming curves – easier than plywood and re-usable (use stakes for support)
Insert spade into the ground along lawn edge, then push it away from the lawn to make a V-shaped trench. Do not actually remove soil. Continue this along the full length and lay the Garden Edging into place. Push it down to a level below grass height to avoid damaging it when mowing then press the soil back into place.
You can buy stakes at most DIY/garden stores but we think it looks better without. Most of it is buried and if pressed hard against it the soil should hold it in place.
