Step by Step Instructions on using Link Edge

  • Clear the area, compact and level the base.
  • Lay the Link Edge down in the approximate area you require it to be.
  • Half hammer spikes into pre punched holes (approximately 4 spikes every 3m length). Start from the first hole at the end of the link edge
  • Half Hammer subsequent spikes in pivotal areas along the length (especially at point where a bend or curve is required).
  • Connect any further 3m lengths together by using the fishplate connectors. Slide the fishplate connector into the designated section at the end of the matching length.
  • Snap it together with the second link edge length enabling for an uninterrupted clear edge.
  • Check that the position of the link edge is visually correct. If it is not, remove the spikes and reposition.
  • Once satisfied with the positioning of the link edge, hammer the spikes firmly into the ground.
  • Use the spike guide to provide extra vertical stability when there is heavier traffic and heavier compacted areas. Ensure edge spike hole is towards the bottom of the spike guide.
  • Fill each side with the desired surface and don't forget to enjoy your new landscaped area.
