HOW MANY STAPLES DO YOU NEED / EXAMPLE PROJECTS

You don't need many 2xEDGE Staples to create a lot of landscape edging.

Here are typical projects that you can easily accomplish with 2xEDGE.

(Installing one or more boards in a straight line - eg., to make a long border between grass and mulch/gravel? Try our calculator.)

 

2 STAPLES: 10-FOOT BORDER

To use a 10-foot board as edging, you need just two 2xEDGE Staples.

Install the staples six to twelve inches from each end.

3 STAPLES: 20-FOOT BORDER

To create a 20-foot long border you'd use two 10-foot boards and three 2xEDGE Staples.

Install a staple six to twelve inches from each end, and one over the seam where the boards meet.

6 STAPLES: THREE-SIDED BED

To make a three-sided bed, such as a flower bed on the side of your house, use three boards and six 2xEDGE Staples. 

Install a staple six to twelve inches from the ends of each board and use a simple butt joint at the corners.

 

6 STAPLES: ZIG-ZAG BORDER

Making a zig-zag border using three boards and six 2xEDGE Staples is a straightforward project you can accomplish with off-the shelf lumber. 

Install a staple six to twelve inches from the ends of each board and use a simple butt joint at the corners.

 

EIGHT STAPLES: SIMPLE FOUR-SIDED BED

To make a four-sided bed, such as a square or rectangular flower or vegetable garden bed, use four boards and eight 2xEDGE Staples. 

Install a staple six to twelve inches from the ends of each board and use a simple butt joint at the corners.

 

EIGHT STAPLES: WALKWAY EDGING

To edge a walkway use four boards and eight 2xEDGE Staples. 

Once you determine the angle you need to use at the bend in your walkway, make angled cuts on one end of each board.

Layout your boards so that your angled cuts are aligned and then install a staple six to twelve inches from the ends of each board.

 

10 STAPLES: EXTRA WIDE FOUR-SIDED BED

To make a four-sided bed that is up to 10-feet by 20-feet, use six boards and ten 2xEDGE Staples. 

Install a staple six to twelve inches from the ends of each board, and one over the seam where the boards meet. Use a simple butt joint at the corners.

12 STAPLES: HEXAGON SHAPED BED

To make a hexagon shaped bed, such as a tree surround, use six boards and twelve 2xEDGE Staples. 

Cut your lumber at a 30-degree angle on each end and install a staple six to twelve inches from the ends of each board.
