How to Install Landscape Edging

by Guest on Nov 24, 2010

If you want to go about and make sure that you add a finishing touch, then you should go about and make sure that you add the landscape edging. This is all it takes. While it will take you a while to install it, then you will find that once you do this, then you will be happy that you did so. How do you do this though? Here is a brief run through of how to do this.

First, you need to measure how much you are going to need. The other thing that you need to do is that you need to go about and make sure that you find which material is going to work for your landscape.  Also adding some rubber matting along with the edging will help give a an even cleaner look.

The next part that you are going to need to do is that you are going to need to take the rototiller to the soil where you will be installing this. This will take care of any roots which you do have to worry about. This is also used to mark your border.

Another thing that you are going to have to do is that you are going to have to dig the trenches. This needs to be four to six inches deep. What this does is makes sure that no grass grows in this. This is the last thing that you want. When grass grows, it looks really disgusting. So make sure that you do this so that you don't have a tacky looking flowerbed.

Next, you need to set up the edging. When you do this, you want to make sure that the top is one inch above the ground. Make sure that you also fill in any gaps. You will want to connect them by placing stakes in the ground. These stakes should be placed every four feet. You want to also make sure that these are level with the flowerbed.

Last of all, you want to back fill the trench. Then, you want to go about and soak the area with water. When you do this, you might find that some of the dirt might fall away or that you might have to add more dirt. This is normal. This is all that it takes. It takes a great while to do this, but when you do it, you will love the way it looks. It adds that finishing touch that makes it look as if a professional had done it. So, start picking what you are going to need so you can get started on this.
