Brand new recycled plastic lawn edging

Elland edging made from recycled plastic is the perfect answer for creating edges and shapes for any lawn or garden border.

Both flexible and robust, Elland edging helps to prevent grass from growing into flower beds shrubberies and paths, at the same time providing stability and strength for edges.

This heavy duty system is manufactured in the Britain from 100% British recycled plastic and provides a strimmer resistant, weather proof boundaries for all landscaping projects. With the flexibility to create curves and corners as well as straight edges, the system is robust enough to withstand small tractor traffic and general mower activity.

Quick, simple and easy to install, Elland edging helps to neatly define shrub and flower beds or paths, keeping garden borders looking neater for longer.

As the recycled plastic material we use in their manufacture is chemically inert, there is no danger of any contamination of the soil from leeching, regardless of the length of time in position.

Elland edging installation guide
For neat looking and maintenance-free appearance to both new and existing borders, please follow the installation guideline for Elland edging given below.

Mark out the shape of the edging using a garden hose or rope.
  1. Use an edging spade to cut the lawn to the shape of your flower bed. Vertical cuts will give the correct angle for lawn edging.
  2. Dig a trench on the flower bed side of the line 25mm (1 inch) deeper than the edging.
  3. Unroll the Elland edging and slide it into the trench with the outside of the curl facing the flower bed.
  4. Position the Elland edging against the cut edge of the grass so that the top is just below the base level of the grass.
  5. Use the soil to hold the edging in place as you work in sections along the length of the flower bed.
  6. Compact the back-filled soil using your foot to hold the edging in place. The soil should come up to, but not above, the top of the edging.
  7. Cut the Elland edging to length using a fine-toothed saw.
  8. Right angled corners can be made easier by lightly scoring the inside of the edging.
  9. Pegs or stakes should not be necessary provided that the soil is firmed down, although every gardener will have their own preferences.
