Everedge steel lawn edging?

Posted: 14/01/2014 at 10:37

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. 

The blue tits are house hunting!

Ive recently seen blue tits going into my nest box. It was a nice sight, but I have bought a camera to fit inside it and now I fear I may have left it too late as I don't want to put the tits off by taking the box down.

Higgy, that looks superb.

 

RD - I reckon if you want to change your weedy lawn into a really nice lawn then I bit if elbow grease is needed. Ideally remove the current turf, deal with the weeds, prepare the soil and relay new turf. But it's not everyone's choice.

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.

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...

It looks like purple loosestrife to me - really good for bees 

That looks a very nice plant. Ive just googled it and in Canada it seems to be an invasive weed with no predators.....

I assume its ok in the UK?

When it comes to false enthusiasm I think Carol K is at the top of the tree. Maybe she's genuine, but she comes across as false to me. 

 

This is is a great series but as often, I find myself skipping through certain sections that don't interest me such as the glasshouse section.
