Introduction to the system

Whether you’re edging your patio, garden path, or an ACO GroundGuard reinforced parking area, ACO BorderGuard gives you a perfect, aesthetically pleasing finish. ACO BorderGuard prevents your slabs and block paviours from moving due to frost, vehicle or pedestrian movement.

Manufactured from 100% recycled materials, ACO BorderGuard is light and easy to work with, offering rapid and simple installation.image

Once installed, the slim vertical edge is virtually invisible as it is hidden by soil or lawn. So you can use ACO BorderGuard with any choice of ground covering, whether it’s lawn, flowerbed, or bark chips.

Thanks to its flexibility, ACO BorderGuard can be used for straight lines, curves or even 90-degree corners.

Installation is far faster than with concrete haunching and, unlike traditional methods, allows you to grow grass or bedding plants right to the edge of your paving, making the most of your garden and eliminating unsightly concrete.
