SELF FIT STEEL EDGING
Through experience of installing many kilometres of our edging and 20 years working with landscape professionals, architects and civil engineers we have developed what we truly believe is the most superior edging system available.
We have considered every aspect of edging, looked at other options available, listened to our customers and made numerous improvements along the way to arrive at the system we offer today, a commercial grade edging designed for use in engineering and landscape applications but simple and flexible enough to be installed by anyone with just a hammer and spanner.
Our self fit metal edging comes in numerous height options in both 3mm and 6mm. Our 3mm thick edging is available in three heights, 75mm, 100mm and 150mm. Our 6mm thick edging is also available in these heights plus 200mm and 300mm which is most frequently used in raised beds, soil retaining and commercial landscaping.
As a general rule we recommend burying half of the edge in traffic areas such driveways and paths and a third when edging lawns and borders. When creating raised beds or terracing and need to make the most of the steel height we recommend setting the steel at least 3cm in the ground.
There is more information on which edge height to choose on our FAQs page, or please get in touch and we will be happy to help.
To place an order with us please get in touch or fill in the quote form. We will come back to you on the same day (Monday to Friday). We always prepare your quote by hand for approval prior to payment.
With each section of edge ordered you will receive:
The section of edge with stakes sleeves and bolts welded onto the unseen side
Fixings required to join onto the next section
This is everything you need to create straight lines or curves
We can also provide preformed corner pieces and the basic tools needed for installation for an additional charge if required.
WHY CHOOSE STEEL EDGING FROM STEELSCAPES?
A unique joining system
A bolt and overlapping plate joining system but with no bolt heads on the seen face. This is one of the most unique feature of our edge. To achieve a strong stable join requires a secure fixing with constant pressure such as a nut and bolt. However many clients do not wish to see any fixings on the seen face (and neither do we quite frankly) Our edging system achieves this with bolt studs welded to the inside.
Our joins are so strong it is possible to install numerous prejoined lengths in one go, saving time.
The overlapping plate is the same thickness as the edge, this ensures curves flow through joins interrupted.
Simple to install
Once the site is prepared all you will need for most installs is a 15mm spanner or socket and a lump or sledge hammer to knock the stakes in.
If you need to cut the edge you will need a hack saw or preferably a grinder on the 6mm thick edge. If you need to join ends you have cut you will require a drill (we supply the drill bit in our joining kit).
We offer 5 height options in our 6mm thick edge and 3 heights in our 3mm edge. Couple with optional accessories such as corner pieces and a cut to length service we have it covered.
Stakes with more grip
Our angle iron stakes have greater surface area in contact with the soil than the more common round stakes, reducing their movement in the ground. The angle iron sleeves surround the stakes providing a secure fit against the edge.
We will can accommodate any non standard edging requirements such as preforming circles, attaching wall fixing brackets, base plates for hanuching or non standard angles.
We also offer a cut to length service and preformed corner pieces. See our prices for more information on corners and cutting to length.
For the thickness of edge and specification our edging offers excellent value for money. See our price list.
Whether an individual or multinational we are always happy to talk edging. It matters to us that you receive the right product and we encourage you to discuss your project with us.
We supply some of the country’s top designers, architects and civil engineering firms. Our edging has been installed across the uk in private gardens and public spaces. We enjoy regular repeat business and compliments from those who install our edging.
