How to Install a Metal Garden Edging System

Whether you’re trying to keep mulch, gravel and pea gravel separated or preventing weeds from destroying your garden beds, Metal Garden Edging System is a great solution. It can be shaped on-site or pre-formed during manufacture to follow intricate contours yet maintain strength and rigidity when installed. It also has hidden connections to guarantee seamless joints without ugly overlaps. Its lighter weight makes it easier to handle and less likely to be knocked over or shifted out of place.

Can you cut metal edging?

Unlike plastic and bender boards, metal edging does not chip or fade with the weather. It is also far stronger and will not crack or break under pressure. While steel and aluminum landscape edgings may be slightly more expensive than bender boards or plastic, they will last much longer and offer superior performance. Link :

When installing a metal garden edging system, it’s important to choose the right product for your soil type. If your soil is soft, it’s possible to simply pound in the edging with a hammer. However, if the soil is hard or sandy, it’s recommended that you dig a small trench to bury the edging. Some types of metal edgings even come with built-in stakes to make this process easy.

Some brands of landscape edging use recycled steel, while others are made from durable materials such as corten steel and galvanized steel. For example, FormBoss’ edging uses BlueScope Australian steel and has a lifetime warranty. This steel is sprayed with powder coating that protects it from weather and pests, allowing it to stand up to harsh WA conditions.
