ProLine / YardEdge Installation Instructions

HELPFUL HINTS BEFORE YOU INSTALL THE EDGING

A. The top of the edging has a thicker rounded surface (Diagram B). B. The edging is normally installed with the stakes on the inside of the landscape bed area (Diagram B). C. For an installation with smoother curves, connect 3 to 4 sections together before placing edging into the trench (Diagram A). D. It is ideal to have another person hold the edging while you are staking it into place, but not necessary. E. Keep snapping the sections together well ahead of the staking.

ProLine Aluminum Landscape EdgingINSTALLATION

  1. Dig landscape trench approximately 5 inches deep. It is much easier to raise the edging than lower it after installation.
  2. Set the edging into the trench with the top of the edging approximately 1/2” to 3/4” above the soil level.
  3. Start at the beginning of the bed area and begin driving the stakes. Snap down the adjacent sections (Diagram A), keeping 3 to 4 sections ahead where the edging is being staked
  4. When you are 15’-20’ from the end of the bed area, determine the length of the last section and cut it with a hacksaw and complete the bed area. Begin the next bed area with the cut end of a partial section and repeat process.
  5. Compact the soil on either side of the edging equally, being careful not to deform curves. Rake in additional topsoil to desired height. This will eliminate uneven settling of the soil adjacent to the edging while the grass fills in.
  6. Forming Angles: Cut bottom of edging halfway up using a hacksaw. Bend edging to desired angle.

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