Flower borders are made of galvanized or vinyl-coated metal to stop rust and eliminate sharp ends. Available in 6″, 12″ and 18″ heights.
Grass edging is embedded close to the ground to separate flower beds from lawn areas, keeping grass roots from spreading where they are not wanted.
Edging is usually plastic, aluminum or galvanized steel, with rolled top edge, in 40′ rolls which can be cut to size. All materials create quality edging, but beware of promotionally priced aluminum edging-it is usually so lightweight that it can bend when installed or become damaged and unsightly with age and use. Plastic edging may be the safest choice since it poses no danger to bare feet and will not damage lawnmower blades.
