Border Rolls are becoming increasingly popular in UK gardens, and create segregation for growing plants and flowers in separate areas. They can act as a partition and help to make your garden look great. We have a range of border log rolls available on our website.

What Log Roll Edging to choose?

The key features to look for in Border Log Roll Edging are pressure treatment and having a flexible curve design. Pressure treatment helps to protect against rot, ensuring a long lifespan and durability when holding back wet growing soil that your plants are in. Curve designs can add a lease of life to redundant corner spaces in your garden, and offer flexibility when fixing whether creating straight lines or curved shapes.

How to fix your Border Log Roll?

Rowlinson have recently released a video guide showing the quick and simple assembly of their Spiked Border Roll.

Simply position the roll where you want it and then fix it in place with a mallet; hammering the spikes into the soil. There’s no need for extra pegs or metal fixings. It’s as easy as that!

We also have standard log border rolls, which do not have spikes. Assembly of these is still easy and can be done in a couple of ways. Log Rolls without spikes can be fixed with metal brackets (by being attached onto sleepers), or by buying additional wooden pegs to fix the roll to, and to then hammer into the ground.

Alternatively, create a trench for part of the log roll to sit into, before filling in the gaps with sand or soil. Assuming it is pressure treated, it won’t rot.

We also recommend inserting coarse sand under the edging when fixing for good drainage, and means the logs won’t be sitting on water. Don’t forget to insert a ground sheet for water management, as you would with a traditional planter, into the areas you want to grow on and put soil/Rolawn Blended Loam on to.
