However, if you are installing our edging on soft or loamy soil, then our optional rebar pin & clip can be added to provide additional stability where required. An additional benefit of these optional pins is that they can be fitted after installation has started – so there is no need to lift a whole run of edging if you encounter softer soil part way during the install.
