The Vital Role of Edging for Fake Grass Installation

In the sun-soaked deserts of Arizona, the appeal of a lush green lawn is only matched by the need for efficiency. With water conservation at the forefront of landscape design, the shimmering mirage of artificial turf has become a staple for homeowners and businesses. But even in this mirage, the details matter.

Edging for fake grass is one of those details in artificial grass installation. This component is crucial for a seamless, polished finish that stands the test of time. Let’s explore the essential role of properly secured edging in the installation process and its benefits.

What Is Edging for Artificial Grass?

Edging for artificial grass is a barrier between the synthetic turf and the surrounding area, securing the turf to keep it in place and prevent it from shifting or lifting. Subpar installation techniques often result in visible gaps between the turf and whatever borders it, making these edges a potential tripping hazard.

Moreover, edging also helps to prevent weeds and grass from growing into the artificial turf. Without proper edging, unwanted plants can find their way through the small gaps and cracks around the installation’s perimeter, compromising its pristine appearance.

The Importance of Edging in the Installation Process

The edging process is an essential step during the installation of fake grass, ensuring the longevity and integrity of the entire project. The edges are secured around the perimeter of the turf area to prevent them from coming loose or curling. Without proper edging, you risk the turf not being securely tethered to the ground, leading to an unsightly, uneven appearance over time.

At Always Green Turf, we emphasize this step in their installation process. It begins with excavation, base preparation, and weed barrier, followed by turf layout and securing, and ends with infill and edging. Each step is carefully constructed to achieve the highest-quality result.

The Benefits of Properly Secured Edging

Property owners deserve landscaping that endures time, weather, and use and remains in place as if laid just yesterday. Proper edging, secured and concealed beneath the surface:

How it Works

For homeowners and businesses alike, the peace of mind from well-secured edging is immeasurable. It ensures that your investment is protected against the elements and daily wear.

Types of Borders for Synthetic Grass

Synthetic grass installations offer several border options, ranging from subtle to standout, each with unique advantages. Always Green Turf offers a variety of edging materials, including bender board, composite, and concrete curbing, each tailored to meet specific design and functionality needs. The versatile nature of these borders allows for creative expression and seamless integration with your property’s unique character.

The Always Green Turf Process

The steps involved in a synthetic grass installation are more involved than you might think, but our seasoned professionals at Always Green Turf have honed their process to perfection. With a keen eye for detail and years of experience, our approach guarantees that every inch will be handled with care and precision.

Tailored Installation

Our skilled landscapers ensure a seamless integration of your new lawn by customizing edges to match any design, border, or shape. To guarantee perfect alignment and allow for precise tucking, we intentionally leave an extra inch of turf around the edges during the initial trim. This approach ensures we have room to adjust, as it’s easier to trim excess later than to add more. With the finest tools and attention to detail, we sculpt your lawn to achieve a polished, professionally landscaped appearance.

Securing Your Lawn

Once your artificial grass is precisely cut, the next step involves anchoring it firmly to the ground. We carefully tuck the edges under using a metal putty knife and then use a hammer to position them securely. Employing non-galvanized turf nails or staples, we lightly hammer these into place, separating the grass blades by hand for a clean insertion. These fasteners are placed every six inches around the perimeter to guarantee a tightly secured lawn edge, ensuring the integrity and longevity of your new, beautifully landscaped space.
