Escape to the Chateau DIY
Dick Strawbridge gives us a sneaky peak of his remarkable renovation installing FlexiBorder
A beautiful example of FlexiBorder installation by one of our lovely customers in south east Scotland, the edging has helped Nicola redesign her garden to keep the dogs off the mud, Great work Nicola!
Country road flower beds are adorned with FlexiBorder garden edging, Lancashires Altham Council have purchased the FlexiBorder's in terracotta colour to surround the colourful flowerbeds on the A628, these will replace the old timber edging that succumbs to the damp weather.
A spokesmen for Altham Council said "These borders are a one time purchase which will reduce costs associated with replacing rotten timber edging".
FlexiBorder is primarily an easy to use DIY solution for home installation by keen gardeners and landscape gardeners. However it is often used as a commercial solution such as edging for campsite pitches, children play areas and in this case a retaining edge for for white stone chips at an exclusive restaurant.
For this solution to work instead of using the supplied glass fibre retaining pegs we used expanding bolts that were drilled into the concrete and tarmac surface that securely fixed the FlexiBorder in place.
The supplied pegs were then cut short at the cap to create a seamless finish to the edging and then all that remined was to backfill the space with white stone chips to create a stunning finish.
