Project Overview

Garden edging provides a good, sturdy barrier for your garden bed. It helps contain mulch and keeps everything looking neat and tidy. We’ll show you how to put in two types of edging - plastic and corrugated garden edging.

Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Dig trench for plastic edging
2 Secure the edging with pegs
3 Measure and cut your corrugated edging
4 Secure your corrugated edging
  • Step 1. Dig trench for plastic edging

    Dig a trench along your garden bed. The trench should be deep enough so that the plastic edging goes down about half way. Each piece of edging should easily clip onto each other so assemble as you move along your trench. 

  • Step 2. Secure the edging with pegs

    Once your edging in is the trench, peg it into the ground on the back. Fill up the trench behind the edging back with the soil you dug out and then compact it to hold the edging firmly in place.

  • Step 3. Measure and cut your corrugated edging

    Roll out the corrugated garden edging and measure to the dimensions of your garden bed. Using tin snips carefully cut the edging a little longer than you need. Make sure you wear gloves to avoid the sharp edges.

  • Step 4. Secure your corrugated edging

    After you have dug your trench, put the corrugated edging into the ground. It should go about half way down into the trench. Peg the edging in every metre, and backfill the trench with your dirt and you’ll have a sturdy garden edging.
