PermaStrip Installation Instructions

PermaStrip Aluminum Maintenance StripINSTALLATION

  1. Dig landscape trench 1" (25mm) deeper than the edging being set.
  2. For straight runs, the installer may want to run a string to serve as a guide.
  3. Set the edging into the landscape trench with the top 1/2" (12.5cm) above what will become the compact finish grade.
  4. The installer may want to install the entire straight run using stakes that are half driven in to "tack" the PermaStrip in place. This will allow the installer when standing back and viewing the installation to make minor adjustments to achieve a perfectly straight run.
  5. Start at the beginning of the bed area and drive the stakes into their locked position. (Diagram A)
  6. Connections are made using the 4" Sliding Connector. (Diagram B)
    Note: When using a Weed Fabric under stone be sure to lap the fabric up the face of the PermaStrip. The weight of the stone will pull the fabric partially down PermaStrip leaving you sufficient coverage.
  7. 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.
  8. Forming Angles: "V-notch" and/or cut the bottom of the edging halfway up using a hacksaw. 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™.
