When it comes to operating a synthetic turf installation company, labor makes the largest contribution to the expense column. While you consider your crews your most valuable asset, they are also your most expensive. The faster and more efficiently they work, the more you reduce costs. Using the right synthetic turf supplies can speed up the installation time, allowing you to finish the job faster and move to the next job. Meet Wonder Edge, the edging that goes down in 10% of the time of bender board or other synthetic turf edging supplies.
The No Dig, No Trench Edging
If your edging requires digging and trenching, you are using the wrong edging. Ditch the bender board and embrace the no-dig Wonder Edge solution. It provides the answer for quick and easy artificial turf installation.
Traditional bender board requires a trench. Then backfilling. Then hoping the crew dug deep enough to do the job right. With Wonder Edge, crews just use turf stakes to tack the edging in place before the turf goes down. Crews then lay the turf, seam if necessary, then just rough cut the turf edges. Tuck the edge into the Wonder Edge slot and stake the turf and edging in place. It’s that easy.
With Wonder Edge, most crew labor time goes into preparing the subsurface not trenching for edging. Your crews save time and you save money.
How to Install Wonder Edge Edging
Once your substrate is clean, leveled, and compacted you are ready to install Wonder Edge. That’s right, before the turf!
Flexible Wonder Edge accommodates the curves to adhere to your design. Connectors attach runs of Wonder Edge together. Simply take your turf stakes and pound them into the holes on the Wonder Edge.
Once your Wonder Edge is in place (and wow wasn’t that faster than digging a trench for bender board) you are ready to come back and install the turf. As you stretch your turf to the edge, stake it in place. Now, take your edge (a rough cut is fine) and tuck it securely into the Wonder Edge slot.
There you have it, a perfectly finished edge in only about 10% of the time you would have spent trenching, staking, and backfilling bender board.
