Tips on Laying Carpet?
You can install the tackless along the leading edge of the hardwood, with the proper gully space, and tuck the carpet in just like you do a wall. I would suggest you rent or borrow a stretcher and get the carpet as tight as you can. Kicking the carpet in, as was apparently done by JustaFramer and others, is not the way to do it. It will damage your knees and the carpet will not be tight enough, which could cause a variety of problems later (or sooner) like wrinkles, delamination of the backing, split seams and lifted edges.
