Timber Edge 100 mm x 25 mm (For curves)
Tanalised timber edging fixed to 50mm x 50 mm tanalised timber pegs at one metre centres used around play areas or multi sport facilities. The 100 x 25 mm timber can be bent to desired curves, so ideal for curved footpaths. Artificial Grass can be nailed (with galvanised clout nails) to the top of the timber or can go over the timber and fixed to the side, hiding the timber beneath the grass.
Timber Edge 100mm x 50mm (For straight runs)
Tanalised timber edging fixed to 50mm x 50 mm tanalised timber pegs at one metre centres used around play areas or multi sport facilities. The 100 x 50 mm timber is ideal for straight lines., Artificial grass can be nailed (with galvanised clout nails) to the top of the timber or can go over the timber and fixed to the side, hiding the timber beneath the grass.
Half Round Hardwood Edge
A hard wood timber with rounded edge that provides a safe edge when using a sand layer or shock pad layer. The edge detail allows the grass to be adhered to the timber. This edge is ideal for flat sites. The edge can be screwed to the base.
Concrete Haunch Edge
A free form 100mm x 50mm concrete haunch is laid to the perimeter this is either against existing paving or wall. In open space the haunch can be created to any shape and can follow the undulations of the land thus preventing trip hazards or the need for back filling. The top side of the haunch should be smooth and at a depth approximately 10 to 20mm below the required surface level.
Pins can be used in areas unlikely to see vandalism. These are 150mm galvanised with a flat head. They are driven through the carpet at the perimeter at a 45 degree angle at 200mm centres 50mm from the carpet edge. Not recommended in children’s play areas.
Used at the top of sloping areas. Minimum 100mm x 50mm fixed to 50mm x 50 mm tanalised timber pegs at up to 500mm centres dependent on the steepness. This anchor allows the carpet to ‘hang’ from it preventing migration down the slope.
Proprietary carpet edges are available which smooth the transition between the grass and hard standing. Edges are generally screwed or adhered to the surface.
Concrete Tapered Edge
Used where the carpet is laid on to hard standing and allows the carpet to flow smoothly into the ground minimising trip hazard. A 200mm wide by 50mm deep groove is cut into the surface using a Stihl saw this is then filled with a tapered concrete haunch onto which the carpet is adhered.
Chase Cut Edge
The simplest edge detail into a hard standing. 10mm groove is cut into the surface using a Stihl saw. The chase is filled with adhesive and the carpet tucked into the groove. Simple and cost effective but there is a slight level change.
