  • Third time of trying to post reply today, not sure I have the hang of this (first post). Just had Everedge fitted to form a chip bark path edge. The gardener I had battled for two hours with wood before we gave up. Ordered this and within two hours job completed. My grandson now has a woodland path all of 15ft long going behind some bushes so has some adventures, he's only two! Great product and would recommend it.
  • Thanks TH. Any photos?

    What are the other options for edging a lawn next to a shingle path. I'm planning this in the spring and not sure what to use.







    my garden design will be very formal with straight edging but might try some curves.







    Key points are retaining shingle and able to mow easily.

    Do you need the edging as well as a path?  We have mowing strips round our lawn - railway sleepers round half, cut at angles to get the bends and then, having nicked grass for beds, I'm gradually edging the new edges with granite paver cobbles just laid in the soil as an edge.

    I just cut the lot with the mower and OH occasionally goes round with a  strimmer to neaten edges.

    Just think what you could buy with the money you'd save.

  • My plan is to swap my mower for one with a rear roller so I can mow the edges safely. I'm going to be ordering some everedge soon for one of my paving projects. I'll post some photos as I go. 

  • I want a roller too !

    Obelixx, when you say mowing strips I assume you mean a run of brickwork or similar. I want to have a seamless run from lawn to path. 

    I don't want the shingle all over the lawn though so I'm guessing edging is the only way to go?

  • As I'm new to this not too sure how to get photo but will give it a go

    As stated, we have railway sleepers all round our lawn which has big curves.   Then I nicked some grass to make a bigger bed and the new edge is slowly being edged with pavers as and when I have time.  It means I can trundle round with the lawn mower and not worry about damaging the grass edge or running over plants in borders.

    Yes Sorry missed that thanks,

    That Everedge does look good but as stated very pricey, anyone know a cheap supply?
