The Benefits of a Metal Garden Edging System

Edging makes your yard look great. It creates a clean, distinct and unobtrusive border between beds, grass and paths. It also keeps mulch and gravel from spreading into lawns or over pathways. It prevents unwanted grass and weeds from growing into flower beds and lawns, as well. It’s hard, durable and is a great landscape border solution for your backyard snag-free. And it stands up to the wear and tear of gardening tools, snow plows, and mowers, as well as frost heave.

Does metal garden edging rust?

Most landscape edging is made from metal, such as aluminum or steel. The choice typically comes down to whether the user wants the edging to be flexible or rigid. Aluminum is softer and better for curvaceous installations, but it can also be susceptible to dents and dings from gardening equipment. Steel is rigid and snag-free, but can be heavier than aluminum. Some manufacturers produce a shot blast, powder-coated finish on their products to reduce delamination and chipping.

Metal edging is easy to install. It’s available in rolls of up to 20 feet and, unlike plastic edging, can be hammered into the ground without stakes. The edging can be cut with a utility knife or scissors to shape it on-site. It is also easy to remove and reshape as needed.

It’s important to dig a small trench when installing metal edging to prevent grass roots from growing up under the product and causing it to crack or break. Some metal edging requires the use of a universal corner to connect two full length pieces, but the corners can be slipped over the top of each end of the edging and hammered down.
