METAL EDGING OPTIONS

Our self fit metal edging is available in 3mm or 6mm thicknessess. 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.

We advise against painting or treating the edge with anything, one of the advantages of bare steel is the fact it requires no maintenance, a coating is likely to need reapplying. Both our mild steel and Corten edging will age to brown and this natural weathered finish is the desired “honest” look. If ever the edge was scratched it will simply weather over again, in effect repairing itself.

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.
unique metal edging joining system

A unique joining system

All of our edging comes with a bolt and overlapping plate joining system but with no fixings on the seen face. This is one of the most unique features of our metal edging. 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.
Joining system for steel edging
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 tinterrupted.

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.

With five height options in our 6mm thick edge, three heights in our 3mm thick edge with corners for every size. All available in Mild steel, Corten and a Galvanised finish. We have your edging requirements 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.

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 meters and the 3mm thick edging down to 2 meters. 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.
