install lawn eding or lay sod first?


I'm landscaping my backyard. I've killed the old grass, tilled the soil, and added compost and its raked and level.

Should I install lawn edging first and then lay the new sod, or lay the sod first and then install the edging?

Install lawn edging first. Soil should be 2" below top of edging to accommodate the sod.

Lawn edging

Hi scott and who ever need this info:

I used edging in many gardens, It does not really matter.
I found it easier to have it before so it mark the exact line for me - but in some cases had the lawn first. does not really matter.

Good luck
