Gravel boards as artificial grass edging?

    Using lockdown to do some DIY and install some artificial grass.

    Have made a lot of mistakes along the way (getting the rest of the garden sorted) so would like to try and avoid any major f-ups going forwards.

    Are timber gravel boards (staked in) suitable for use as edging?

    Three sides of the edges back onto concrete (patio + walls either side) so I am not too concerned about the strength of handling the subbase etc on those sides. But the side that is edged into soil (will eventually be a narrow path covered in pebbles down the side o lf the garden)? Are gravel boards ok for use there?

    The artificial grass will be screwed into the top of the boards so you won't see them.
  2. Could you not double up on the side that isn't backed by concrete?

    I would be tempted to dig out a channel, shallow concrete footing for board to sit on and then haunch the board with concrete (path side). Would mean digging bit of soil out but if it is going to be pebbles eventually anyway etc.
