Before beginning installation, uncoil your edging and allow it to remain in the sun. This will help straighten out the edging prior to installation, increase the flexibility needed for curved designs and decrease the chances of kinking. Master Mark Dig-Free edging can be used in areas that have yet to be landscaped, or use to replace existing landscaping.
- Position the edging along the path of your design to ensure the proper length is available.
- Cut your edging to the necessary length with heavy-duty garden shears or fine tooth saw.
- Use Master Mark landscape stakes to secure the edging to the ground. Stakes should be placed at least every four feet with additional stakes at each end and through curves as needed. You may need to use a soft rubber mallet if your soil is too dense.
- After you have installed and staked your edging, fill the inside of your landscape bed with rock or mulch as per your design.
