Sometimes, when the land is rising or sloping, it is difficult to maintain a consistent edging height.
FormBoss® makes it incredibly easy to connect edges on uneven blocks of land.
To connect on a sloping or rising block (in this case sloping):
1. Judge the angle of the slope by laying a piece of edging either side of the change of gradient. Just lay them on top of the soil slightly overlapping the steel at one end.
2. Get a pen and mark the edging where it overlaps. Note that this can work whether you’re dipping the edging or raising it, both methods remain the same.
3. Cut along the line with an angle grinder or hack saw, and join as per usual with a normal smart connector. It always helps to have a good clamp.
4. Lastly, install as you would usually, taking care to cover up the screws with the soil level.
Try repeating this process two or more times to get a more subtle change of angles.
Try putting an angle on any of your edges to give it a tapered effect. It can look really great in the larger sizes of edging! You can also just push one end of the edging flush into the ground to get a fading out effect.
