How can I stop drivers parking their cars on my grass verge?
Grass verges or green spaces next to busy roads often turn into parking areas for drivers. The once beautiful green verge can turn into an unsightly muddy mess in winter or after heavy rain, ruining the grass and the view. At Jacksons we provide products that will take back your green verge and keep vehicles wheels firmly on the road. Please note if you do not own the grass verge you will need to contact your local council in order to implement demarcation.
Verge protection marker posts
Timber verge protection marker posts are the simple and effective solution to the problem. They are easy to install as they include a metal tube at the bottom of the timber post that allows the post to be pushed securely into the ground. A reflector attached either side of the post increases the visibility of the marker posts at night, stopping vehicles hitting the posts and also warning motorists to keep away from the grass verges.
If there is a chance the verge posts will be knocked then it may be worth fixing them into the ground with concrete or looking at a stronger solution for instance timber or metal bollards.
A bollard is a heavy duty solution that will not only stop cars or vehicles driving over the edge of the verge and ruining the grass but will stop vehicles parking or accessing grass areas completely. There are a number of different styles and sizes of bollard available, usually the type or style depends on the environment where the bollard needs to be installed.
Timber bollards can be installed with reflectors pretty much anywhere and will look good in residential locations. Metal bollards will fit in with most commercial surroundings and even stainless steel bollards can be used for contemporary locations.
