Advantages and disadvantages
Thanks to the inventive engineers, elements of garden improvement constantly evolve. New technologies affected the scope of borders. On the replacement of conventional fences of the beds from concrete stones came innovative analogs. And although the first reliably fix the road tiles and restrain the ground from the spreading, because of their straightforward shape and fragmentation, they do not look completely elegant.

To work on installing tapes you need to use a bayonet shovel. You will need additional polymer stakes and marking cords, if the creation of clums of unusual forms or sets of flower beds is coming.

- If a high flower bed is assumed, a pegs are driven around the perimeter of the ribbon, the additional emphasis will not give a ribbon to bend under the pressure of the soil.
A multi-tier complex flower bed is created by the groundwalk and raise the bed. Fixed tape through special polymer pegs. Ribbon need to cut, prepare the groing dimensions, respectively, and closer to the ring. The edges of the product can be connected by the stapler. Then the ribbon ring is put in the groove of the end face and is fixed by pegs in a certain position. They are located, observing between them the distance in 0.5 meters.
