Create a trench using an edge cutter or a trench shovel. For existing lawns remove any grass from beds that you want to isolate from your lawn. Be sure to sever lawn runners when installing along an existing lawn. Note: This edge allows gentle sloping.
STEP 1 Place the edges in the trench or along the line roughly where they need to be. STEP 2 Join all edges together with Tek screws or pop-rivets. STEP 3 Make adjustments to the run of the edge until happy (TIP: temporary use of a few of the pegs by partially inserting them in ground can help with place holding.) STEP 4 Hammer all the pegs in adjacent to the edge; leave 5 mm of the peg sticking out above the edge. STEP 5 Starting from one end and working your way along lift the edge up over each peg, tapping with the rubber mallet as you go to lock the pegs into the edge. Listen for the lock-in click! STEP 6 Backfill against the edge to sure up your line and complete the job.
Tip: When you compact a base like sand or gravel, point the feet inwards and compact on the feet. This increases the strength of the edge.
RIGHT ANGLE CORNER
If you want to make a right angle corner, score a line down the back of the edge an angle grinder and create a sufficient opening in the double folded lip. Bend and force it by hand; bend it a little too far then bend it back. Placing a block of wood close to the fold improves the result. You can use a rubber mallet to tap the edge into a perfect square corner.
