Polybind Edge Flex & Rigid are made with 100% Polypropylene Co-Polymer. This will give it great strength as well as provide greater flexibility. We have a Rigid model which is ideal for straight applications and can be turned into flex unit by cutting the bridge support. The Flex model can be used for all curved applications such as walkways, paths, entrances etc. Both the Rigid and Flex can be locked together with the “Twist & Lock’’ connection system.
A triangular angle at all key points has been engineered to provide a strong lateral support, essential for the load transfer on the paving units. Rigid can be modified into a Flex by simply cutting the connector between each triangular angle.
1. With a measuring tape, measure how many feet long the bed is. Then measure how many feet wide. Multiply these two figures. The total is the square foot area of that landscape bed.
2. Decide how thick you want your mulch to be (2” is average). For new landscape beds, 4” of mulch is recommended. If you are just top dressing a previously mulched bed, you may wish to use as little as 1” of mulch. Using the conversion chart below or Mulch Calculator to the right, you can figure how many cubic yards or bags of mulch, soil or gravel to order.
3. If you still have questions, please call our visit one of our stores. If you have the total area of your landscape beds calculated, we’d be glad to help you figure the amount of mulch, soil or gravel you will need.
