Artificial grass makes a great alternative to natural turf grass. Especially in arid and shady areas. Once installed, artificial grass requires little maintenance other than keeping it clean. But installing artificial grass makes for some backbreaking labor if you don’t work smart. Pick an artificial turf lawn edging that minimizes the installation labor.

Prepare the Area Properly

Before you start base preparation, make sure large rocks are removed. Go ahead and cap off any sprinkler heads as well. You won’t be watering the artificial grass!

It helps to outline the turf surface area. Whether you use string, spray paint, or a garden hose, mark off the area to be occupied by the turf.

Spread your base material and compact it. The better you compact your base material, the smoother your turf material goes down.

Yep! You read those words correctly! Install your lawn edging before you lay the artificial grass.

That’s only possible if you install Wonder Edge lawn edging made specifically for artificial grass.

Skip the digging and trenching required for bender board and other products used to edge artificial grass. Most people don’t trench deep enough, and eventually, the edge creeps.  Forget backfilling your edging too!
