EverEdge is very effective in controlling grass runners and stopping them invading other 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.
And of course Winter is an ideal time to get the garden in order whilst the soil is damp (easier to hammer in EverEdge) and before the enthusiastic Spring growth challenges the garden borders.
No job too small, a corner problem solved – forever!
