Has anyone used metal garden edging before? I think wood is quite popular for border edging but I've seen a few websites selling metal. What do people think?
I'm really not keen on the look of it, and I still carry the scar from when I was weeding a garden I'd just 'moved to' and a piece of old metal lawn edging attacked me - and I'm talking 40+ years ago!
I don't edge my borders and beds - how would I enlarge them to accomodate my increasing purchases?
No, I'm not sure either. Just wanted to know whether other people used any borders in their garden.
Thank you for the reply
I use a bamboo fence as I have an exotic look. I do think metal edging, esp the hidden ones, look very professional but they cost a lot. Very good for curving lawns.
No, it doesn't go with my gardening style too precise
I've used the plastic edging from B&Q. It does the job for me and it's pretty sturdy. I used a piece of timber and a lump hammer to get it just below the level of the grass and it's virtually invisible. I looked at the metal edging but the cost is very high as I need about 200 feet of the stuff.
www.borderedging.co.uk is a good website for metal garden edging. - Not too expensive
I like my edges sharp and deep. Not a fan of edging of any sort, but If you are not to good at keeping a neat edge then go for it. It's your garden after all.
I used Smartedge - it's plastic and invisible (and has stopped me digging up my grass to extend the borders - all good).
