Don't just edge your grass, control your grass. Tired of the endless, thankless job of pulling grass roots out of your flower beds? Stop grass roots once and for all. Install Grass Barrier and reduce your lawn maintenance instantly. Create perfect low-maintenance flower beds with beautiful clean lines and no grass! Grass Barrier can also be installed with hardscape borders (rocks, bricks, etc.) for protection from intruding grass.
Grass Barrier is a multi-function garden border. The top portion serves as a defining line to hold back your mulch, gravel or soil. The lower portion is the real workhorse that stops grass roots from growing into your beds. Free up your precious time and install Grass Barrier!
Grass Barrier is typically installed 6" below the soil with a 4" lip left above ground. Dig a narrow trench 6" deep around the perimeter of the flower bed, install Grass Barrier vertically and backfill the trench with soil to secure. Work in a linear fashion from one end to the other when back-filling, alternating sides when tamping the dirt to keep Grass Barrier straight and prevent waving. If the material needs to be cut or trimmed this can be done easily with a sharp utility knife. Depending on your exact installation this may be adjusted. Most transverse grass roots typically run in the first 6 inches of soil.
Tip: Prior to installation, lay Grass Barrier out in the sun. This will relax the material making it easier to work with.
