Using Humboldt Redwood Benderboard

Redwood has proven to be one of the most effective types of landscaping wood for benderboard due to its rot resistance without the use of chemical treatments. Below are tips for installing benderboard to get landscaping with the most manicured look possible.

  • Account for curves and turns when measuring the length of redwood benderboard you’ll need for your project.
  • Use a garden hose to mark where your edging will be.
  • The trench for the border should be ½ inch shorter than your benderboard.
  • Place your stakes in first, putting them far enough into the ground that they will sit about one inch below the top of the redwood benderboard.
  • For straight portions put stakes in every four feet, but put in two stakes at any curve.
  • When packing in the dirt, keep it lower on the flowerbed or garden side so that mulch can be added without going over the top of the benderboard.
