The strength and flexibility of our steel edging makes it an ideal for metal garden edging for paths and driveways. Our portfolio contains many examples of our customers driveway and path edging projects. Installation is straightforward with no prior experience or specialist tools needed.
Clearly we are biased, but we feel there is something lovely about a steel edged driveway and path. There is no bulky concrete kerb, rotting timber edge or even worse, no edge at all, with lawn spilling onto the driveway, all you have is a subtle, clean steel face beautifully meandering or providing perfectly crisp straight lines.
Even in the harsh environment of a driveway our 6mm thick steel edge will be looking good for in excess of 40 years.
A thicker edge. When is comes to metal edging for paths and driveways the robustness of the edge is the most important element. Our 6mm thick edge is market leading, while a 5mm driveway edge doesn’t sound like much of a step down its 20% less material and strength. For pedestrian pathways our 3mm edge is ideal although some clients still prefer the thicker edge for a belt and braces job. Please see our video for more information on our range or see our general edging page.
Stakes with more grip. Driveway and path edging is subject to more physical force than other edge applications. Our angle iron stakes have more surface area against the ground than the more commonly used round stakes, in fact 3 times more than a 10mm diameter round stake, that’s times more bite! The stakes are not pre attached to the edge but slide through pre welded sleeves, this allows you to set the edge into position before knocking the stakes in.
A very robust joining system. In any application but especially on driveways and paths a secure join is essential, in time un-secure joins are likely to bulge, ours won’t, in fact it’s the only bolt together system which has no fixings (bolt heads) on the seen face, thanks to our cutting edge welding equipment. An overlapping plate bolted across both sections of the edge ensure the joins remain stead fast leaving you with nothing more than a faint seam line between edge sections which are hard to find even when looking.
A large range. With 5 edge heights up to 300mm high in our 6mm thick edge we really should have your driveway and path edging requirements covered, if your driveway or path has varied heights we can even provide joining plates to allow you to connect different edge heights together, provide bespoke angles, cut to length sections, please see the range section on our main edging page for more information.
