Log roll edging
 
Has anybody ever used these log roll edging, are they just secured with 2x2
stakes or are they pegged also.
I am planning to use them to mark off an area for raising above the garden,
so they will have approx. 6" of earth behind them pushing them out.


Thanks In Advance

I used the short ones last year to define the edges of a 13/14 yard long
bark path. I only staked them at either end of the path and found that
by making a shallow trench and hammering each roll home they were quite
firm. However, with the weight of earth behind you might have to use the
longer log rolls and stake each or every other roll.

Shop around before you buy - I bought mine in the local Focus DIY store
at half the price of other stores.

Regards.

My local garden centre does 12'' high x 5ft length ones which are
battened along length and have a stake at either end.
I used them to make a miinnie fence along the front lawn and they
are very sturdy.
If I remember correctly they cost circa 9 per length but my GC isn't
the cheapest in the world ! I'm sure you could get a better deal
shopping around

Good Luck
