Reasons You May Need Edging For Your Artificial Turf

Are you unsure if your lawn requires artificial grass edging? Perhaps a landscape gardener or installer has previously offered you guidance, or perhaps you know someone else who needed a border or edging for their installation.

This blog should be useful if you’re wondering whether your garden needs a border (or edging). We’ll explain below why a border (or edging) could be necessary for your artificial turf installation.

Why You May Need Artificial Grass Edging

1. Your lawn has a slope.
You will need strong and sturdy artificial grass edging if your lawn is on a slope or hill to keep your grass in place. Otherwise, it can gradually start to move or slip downward. The grass will be secured in place by being nailed to a wooden border.

2. Your dog’s propensity for picking up edges worries you.
Timber or sleepers are once again a fantastic alternative if you’re concerned that your especially spirited dog (or dogs) would yank your grass up at the edges. Your grass won’t have a chance to move, and your dog won’t be able to pull on the edges.

ARTIFICIAL GRASS PERK: Dogs are far less likely to pick or dig at your turf lawn since typically there isn’t muck under your synthetic grass.

3. You’re having a putting green made of artificial grass installed.
If you wish to build your own putting green on your lawn, there is another incentive to use a boundary. This is because you’ll need something to divide your putting green from the surrounding grass so that the sub-base compacts properly.

4. Your grass has nothing to rest against.
You’ll also need to install artificial grass edging if your turf doesn’t already have a wall or other obstruction to lean against. This will prevent your turf edge from being exposed and ensure that the sub-base compacts appropriately.

5. You should raise the levels of your lawn.
I would suggest using timber sleepers to create different levels in your landscape. This is due to the fact that they have more depth and are frequently less expensive. On the edge, though, you may alternatively use bricks or decking planks. It would mostly rely on the elevation levels to which your ground was lifted.
