Controlling Grass Runners
Controlling grass runners is a daily problem in most Australian gardens. EverEdge is very effective in preventing grass runners from spreading into parts of the garden where they are not welcome.
Most of the lawns in Australia are either Buffalo, Kikuyu or Couch. These grasses are perfect for the Australian climate, they are drought tolerant, hardy and repair well. However, their enthusiastic grass runners can invade beds, paths and driveways.
The runners can be effectively controlled with an above and below ground barrier. When installing EverEdge if 30 mm of the actual edge as well as the spikes is hammered into the ground this forms an underground barrier that will stop 80% of the runners. Unfortunately nothing will stop the few runners that go metres deep and cross under roads but with the majority controlled its easy to weed out the odd few that cross over.
We recommend using either the 100 mm or 125 mmm depths when edging lawns with grass runners. In that way with 30 mm underground it still leaves a significant depth of the edge above the ground to hold in the soil or mulch.
No job too small, a corner problem solved – forever!
