Installs with ease whether your project is large or small, includes straight runs or lots of curves, Sure-loc has an edging to fit your needs. With our patent pending “puzzle like” locking system, you can seamlessly and securely connect each section together using two stakes that are below grade. No one will know where the end points are. And, at the end of the landscape bed, simply cut the material with a hacksaw and slide an end stake adaptor over the edging, which allows you to add stakes at any point.



“Sure-loc Edging really is as easy to install as 1,2,3"



Work in progress, using Sure-loc Black Anodized Aluminum Edging. Note the fluid curves and defined spaces.



Before you begin, make sure you have some items handy. You will need a spade, a soft head hammer, a hose or rope, a hacksaw, and a rake. We also recommend you wear safety glasses and garden or work gloves.

Before

After



1. MEASURE

Determine the amount of edging required by measuring the exterior perimeter of the project.

2. COMPACT THE BASE

Prepare and compact the base as recommended by the paver manufacturer for your area. Base should extend at least 6 inches beyond the edging.

3. SPREAD

Spread 1/2 to 1 inch of sand over the installation area and level to a uniform depth prior to setting the pavers.

4. SET PAVERS & COMPACT

Set pavers according to your design requirements. Once completed, compact the pavers using a vibrating compactor. Start at the outer edges and work towards center. Spread coarse sand over entire project sweeping the sand in between the pavers. Compact again until all pavers are level and all joints are tight.

5. LAY PAVER EDGING

Lay the material along the perimeter of the pattern with the tabs facing inwards. Material can be easily bent by hand to form any curve or angle. 90 degree angles may be formed as often as every 4 inches without cutting the material. If your project requires bending between a V-shaped cutout, cut your own V using tin snips.

6. ANCHOR WITH SPIKES

Push down edging lightly to set the material into base, anchoring with spikes as you go. Once the desired length has been reached, cut off excess material using a hacksaw. Anchor material at both ends using spikes.

7. BACKFILL THE AREA

Bring areas adjacent to the pavers up to the desired level using rake to move the soil or sod. Edging should not be visible when the project is completed.
