Artificial turf requires edging to secure the base and hold turf material in place. But, does the turf edging you pick matter? Yes, it certainly does! Turf accessories to secure the edging run from bender board to Wonder Edge. What’s the difference and is one better than the other? Keep reading to find out.

Bender Board – The Traditional Way to Edge Artificial Turf

For years, professional artificial turf installers leaned on bender board as their go-to turf accessories for securing turf edges.

Bender board provided a solid flexible edge that protected turf material edge and created a visual transition between the artificial turf and the adjacent area.

But these turf accessories came with a huge Achilles heel. To properly install bender board turf edging, the crew faced digging a deep trench, placing the bender board in the trench, then backfilling and staking the board.

Hence the problem. Skimp the trenching and over time, bender board creeps, the base seeps out, and the installation looks like garbage. Trenching requires hours of backbreaking work. In areas where the soil is hard clay or rocky, it takes even longer. This is why most trenches clocked in too shallow for success.

Poured Concrete – The Expensive Way to Edge Artificial Turf

Poured concrete skips the trenching. However, concrete forms must be in place and secured next to the turf.

This approach provides so many ways for things to go wrong. Faulty forms result in uneven edge material or even worse – concrete seeps onto the turf.

Even when things go right, pouring concrete costs so much money. In addition, you must wait for concrete to cure. That takes forever!
