METAL EDGING OPTIONS

Our self fit metal edging is available in 3mm or 6mm thicknesses. Our 3mm thick option is available in three heights, 75mm, 100mm and 150mm. This can be bent by hand to form your own corner to any angle. Our 6mm thick metal edging is also available in these heights plus 200mm and 300mm which are most frequently used to create raised beds and planters, soil retaining and commercial landscaping. Our 3mm thick edge is supplied in minimum 2m lengths and the 6mm option is supplied in 3m lengths. These longer lengths simplify and save time on installation.

Our standard and most popular edging is Mild steel, this will weather to brown over 6-12 months. For faster weathering (as little as 1 month) we offer Corten edging, or Galvanised edge for a permanent grey/silver finish.

Please enquire for pricing on our Corten and Galvanised garden edging.

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 steel raised beds or terracing and need to make the most of the edge height we recommend setting the edge at least 3cm in the ground.

There is more information on edge selection on the Steel Edging FAQs page and the Metal Edging Explained film above, or please get in touch and we will be happy to help.

WHY CHOOSE STEEL EDGING FROM STEELSCAPES?

Steel thickness is the most important factor in edge strength and longevity, the millimetres count. We are keen for potential clients to understand the commercial nature of our edge and are happy to post a short steel sample free of charge in order to gain an appreciation.

A unique joining system

Our steel edging uses a nut bolt and overlapping plate joining system which is extremely strong but most importantly there are no fixings or bolt heads on the seen side, leaving a continuous clean, flat steel face in which the joins are hardly visible. The secure nature of the joining ensure curves flow uninterrupted and straight runs are … Straight

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 to length our joining kit provides a simple means of reconnecting the cut end to the rest of the edge. (You will need a drill) see our buying guide for more information on these and our installation guide on how to use them.

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.

Create beautiful curves

One of the many advantages of steel is its natural flexibility and its ability to create flowing curves with little effort. Despite its thickness even our 6mm metal edging can create a complete circle with a diameter as small as 4 metres and the 3mm thick edging down to 2 metres. This path using our 6mm thick edging was achieved with minimal effort.

Excellent value

For the thickness of edge and specification our edging offers excellent value for money. See our price list.

Bespoke corners

We can provide corners to any angle internal or external to seamlessly attach to all our edge sizes.

Ideal for traffic areas

Installed correctly our 6mm thick steel edging will withstand wayward wheels with no need to haunch with concrete. This makes installation quick, simple and also allows lawns and plants to thrive right to the edge as their roots are not restricted by a concrete shelf
A majority of our competitors offer a maximum of 5mm thick. Ours is 6mm, its 1mm, buts its 20% more steel and strength, and you can feel the difference. When edging driveways, or creating raised beds this matters.

Personal service

This is a big one for all of us here at Steelscapes. Whether going the extra mile to meet demands of trade accounts or guiding those new to the world of steel edging, we encourage you to engage with us to ensure you receive the most appropriate edging solution.
