What is the longest lasting edging?

Unlike wood and plastic, metal edging is incredibly durable and will last longer. Plus, it’s a great way to give your landscaping project a sleek and unified look.

Easy to Install

The first step to installing metal edging is digging a trench in which to bury the edging pieces. If the soil is soft, you can use a wood block to pound it to the desired depth.

Make sure your trench is narrow (no more than 10cm wide) and face the lawn so you can describe the line you need. Then, carefully set your edging pieces in place with at least half of them below ground for maximum stability and strength.

For added support, join three to four shaped pieces together using the smart connectors provided. Clamp the connectors in place before inserting a screw at the bottom of each. Back fill the area around the screw and tap down the edging to make your final height adjustments.

Once your edging is in place, it’s a good idea to check for any areas where the metal sticks out from the ground. If there are any that are not stable, simply scrape away some of the softer soil and replace it with the same amount of firmer soil. This will ensure that your edging stays stable and is not liable to fall out of place or flex when the ground is wet.
