What to edge a curved flower bed border with?

Hi all,

I have a curved flower bed edge - a sort of wavey line. The rest is lawn. I would like to tidy up the edge (I bought myself an edger last week!) but dont know what to edge it with, especially an edging that will make mowing the lawn easier.

I dont much like that wooden edging - becuase everytime Ive seen it its rotten and looks tatty. Is there anything els ethat looks nice, cheap, easy to install and curves?

Thanks

    Coincidentally I was trying to make curves in a new bed with an edger this morning. My edger only makes 6/8 inch straight cuts. I've settled on using an old kitchen bread knife to cut the curve in the lawn using the bottom of a plastic bucket as a template. I'm sure someone will be along to with a time tested method.
