If you are at this step in the artificial grass installation process, please keep reading for some of the types of edging for artificial grass that are available. Having a deeper understanding of the different types will help you achieve the perimeter you want and need.

Paving Stones

This low-maintenance option still allows for visual appeal. Paving stones are durable and attractive, and you can use them in a multitude of scenarios.

Wood Chips and Bark

This option is for anybody looking for a natural look. However, some people frown upon the idea that wood chips and bark could make their way onto the yard, so we recommend creating a solid line of edging between the grass and wood chips or bark.


Steel is a long-lasting, quick, and easy to install option that you can cater to your design. It is a more expensive option, but many people prefer this method over others.

Bendable Borders

If you are looking for an affordable, long-lasting option, bendable borders might be your answer. Not only are they affordable, but we carry them in stock in our warehouse and they are available at most home improvement stores. Additionally, the installation process is so easy that almost anybody can do it.

Logs or Wood

We recommend this type of edging for artificial grass that has a straight edge design, though you can use it in other situations as well.


While this is a popular edging option that is very visually appealing, it is important that you are sure this is the way you want to go. Curbing is a very permanent option that will not allow you to easily redesign your lawn or landscape shape.

Railroad Ties

This popular option has been used by many over the years and provides the same variety of uses for landscaping and edging as paving stones. You can cut railroad ties to fit any space or area needed. Many people use them to build their lawn if needed before installing artificial grass.

We understand that there are many options to choose from, but a professional can assist you in making all the right decisions for your lawn. Look at the options above and dive deeper into several types of edging for artificial grass to make the right decision for you.
