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?

There is a plastic version similar to that shown in the photo.  It's much cheaper and has the potential advantage that it won't bend mower blades

Worry with plastic it may be brittle or fade! Correct me if I'm wrong!!!

I am planning something similar for next year to separate beds from lawn.  Was looking at this:

I am sick off telling people to stop standing on my lawn edges!

I got some galvanised lawn edging from e-bay at a fraction of the price.

Gardman do it but there is a no-name version which retails for around £10 for

5m x 160mm (16' 3" x 6.5") which includes delivery.

I got some last year and plan to make a start with it soon. It says it's rot proof and maintenance free but I was thinking of spraying it with hammerite.

I made a concrete edge around my lawns.  It looks discreet, prevents grass creeping into the borders and .....unless I alter the lawn edge shape...is permanent.  It is wide enough to stand on but only about 4" wide. 

Plastic edges are useless. ,metal edges are too thin.

It may do over time but I've had some edging my front garden for a few years and it's OK still at present.

The plastic smartedge looks good and is well priced but I'm wondering how long it will last.

All the reviews I see are good has anyone had any experience with this product?

Well I've taken the plunge and ordered 10m of Everedge galvanised edging and one of their 900mm rings (to go around trees). I'll take some photos during installation and post them here.

I'm also interested to hear experiences with Smartedge.  I have approximately 50 metres to edge.

This is a top class product It far outlasts almost all other edging .  You get what you pay for and this is the bees knees.  Plastic goes hard and spits /splinters and as for log edging seven year before it rots some hope.  I have only had one other product this comes anywhere tnear everedge and they were genuine victorian edging tiles however they are pricey and get chipped.
