Looking for metal edging for lawns? Perfect – the most common application for our metal edging is to retain lawns. There are few things in the garden more satisfying than a newly trimmed lawn with a beautifully crisp edge. A steel lawn edge ensures the sides of your grass are perfectly and permanently defined.
Aside from the aesthetic advantages of installing our metal lawn edging there are many practical benefits too.

We can offer our range of sizes in the following materials.
Galvanised steel lawn edging
Occasionally we supply a galvanised steel edge for lawns, this is either due to a client with a preference for the silver grey finish or in commercial situations for increased longevity. A
galvanised lawn edge will last around twice the time as a bare steel edge. Galvanised edging does cost more than untreated steel and the lead time is 1 week longer than untreated edging, please get in touch for more information.
Corten lawn edging
While mild steel is still the most widely used over the last 10 years Corten lawn edging has become increasingly popular. Corten will weather to brown faster than mild steel, typically
completed in a month. In terms of appearance once weathered Corten edging has a slightly lighter orange colour than mild steel due to the higher copper content, that said unless seen side by side only an expert would be able to tell the two apart. Corten steel garden edging will outlast mild steel edging due to its self sealing properties, it’s hard to quantify how much longer due to varying atmospheric conditions having a large influence on both metals longevity.
The slower degradation of Corten edging makes it suitable for areas where rust staining could be a problem such as edging over or adjoining lightly coloured paved surfaces.
The other difference between Corten steel edging and mild steel edging is the price, edging in Corten is 75% – 90% more expensive than mild steel.
In our opinion unless you need to reduce the chance of rust staining, or Corten lawn edging has been specified by a designer or architect, then mild steel edging is the way to go.
