Has anyone used this product, or similar?

Im planning on buying some Everedge steel lawn edging for when I landscape my garden this spring, but wondered if anyone here has any experience of using it? It looks perfect for edging curved areas...

I saw Alan Titchmarsh use it in one of his itv Love Your Garden programmes.

Havent used it myself as I prefer an edging spade, but it looked very effective on the curved lawn he laid,

Maybe if I was less of a fuddy duddy, I'd try it.

Maybe if I was a millionaire I would use it but a 30.00 to 40.00 a metre its right out of the question.

Thats for a pack of 5 though. So more like £8 per meter.

Im wanting to use it in-between a new cobbled path and lawn, with the lawn slightly higher than the path so I can mow over it. Im laying a curved path and the steel edging strip should make life easier.

I like the idea but again want to know from others about staying putness and longevity!

Do you sink it or leave level, what if you run off edge and mover blades hit it, ouch!

My mower had hit my wooden sunken edging and it took a chink out of it and bent the blade causing it to gauge the lawn.

I liek the idea of the metal edging as pointed out it works with curves. I have seen a very similar edging used in my local park and it seems to work a treat and that is with council workers.

Thats not so bad then, in the top pic of the OP it shows its put in the ground up to the top of the spikes.

You must garden differently to me

The second picture you posted LeadFarmer I thought looked like something they used in Medieval times for naughty people.

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.

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.

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
