CleanLine XL Installation Instructions

CleanLine XL Aluminum Landscape EdgingINSTALLATION

  1. Dig landscape trench 1” (25mm) deeper than the edging is being set. Before digging,
    contact your local utility companies for utility line locations.
  2. Set the edging into the landscape trench with the desired amount of edging exposed above what will become the compacted finish grade. 1/2” (12.5mm) above finished grade is recommended for most applications and areas where pedistrian traffic is possible. For raised bed applications set edging at the desired depth to allow for appropriate height of bed.
    (CAUTION: Edging installed more than 1/2“ above grade may be considered a trip hazard and is not recommended in areas where pedistrian traffic may come in contact with the edging.)
  3. Slide three XLRs onto the edging section and place edging at the beginning of
    the bed area. Place one XLR near the beginning (first 6”) of the edging section and secure with a stake. Space the two remaining XLRs equally along the edging section and secure with stakes. (Diagram A)
    (NOTE: Typical installation uses 3 XLRs and stakes per section, including the connection. Additional stakes may be added as needed by attaching more XLRs.)
  4. Connect ends of sections using an XLR and stake. (Diagram B)
  5. At the end of the bed area, cut the section to the desired length and stake down using an XLR. Begin your next bed area with the remaining portion of the cut section. (Diagram C)
    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.

NOTE: When installing Aluminum edging in direct contact with ACQ treated lumber we recommend installing a barrier material such as Grace Vycor® Deck Protector™
