METAL GARDEN EDGING INSTALLED BY US

Whether you are looking for a permanent metal lawn edge which will look crisp for life, a solid steel driveway or path edge strong enough to drive over, a metal border edge which will never loose its shape or any bespoke steel edging features such as raised beds, terraces or steps, if your based within 50 miles of us in Norfolk we can install it for you.

If you are outside our installation area, you can still source the same commercial grade metal garden edging for simple self installation. Please see our self fit metal lawn edging page.

Sparks fly when your metal edging is installed by us! Six metre lengths of 6mm thick metal edging strips are cut, welded and formed into position to provide a permanent and zero maintenance solid steel garden edge.

Fabricating steel edging on site provides a truly bespoke metal edging solution. We work with private individuals and some of the country’s top designers to create a steel edged framework to their design or installing a steel edge into an existing scheme.

While mild steel edging is most commonly used we are also able to offer stainless steel and Corten garden edging. We are asked a lot about the difference between mild steel and Corten edging so we recently wrote a blog on the subject, you can view it here – Corten Edging or Mild Steel? You may also find our blog on What is Corten Steel? of interest.

Our metal edging installation service covers much of the South East to include Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex, and for large installations as far as Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and South Lincolnshire. For large installations outside these areas please enquire or consider our supply only steel edging which is the same commercial grade in a simple to install self fit metal edge kit.

OUR MARKET LEADING 6MM THICK METAL GARDEN EDGING

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.

For all our metal edging installations, whether in a private garden or on a construction site, we always use a 6mm thick edge. Flexible enough to form flowing curves but strong enough to withstand being driven over and retain soil.

Our steel edge is held in position with 30mm angle iron stakes which are typically 45cm long. These are knocked through pre-welded sleeves set at at least every 85cm. They can be driven through the hardest ground and will withstand blows from a sledge hammer or if the going gets tough we get to use our pneumatic hammer!

The metal edging strips are welded together to form a seamless join and reinforced with a 6mm thick plate welded across the back of the join, making them as strong as the edge itself. Corners are welded on the unseen side and reinforced with an angle iron bracket.

Lastly stakes are welded to the sleeves to prevent the steel edging moving vertically.

There are no fixings on the seen metal edge face and stakes are set below the top of the edge to ensure they are well clear of mowers.

METAL GARDEN EDGING FOR A RANGE OF APPLICATIONS

Applications for our metal garden edging range from straightforward lawn edging to creating complex geometric shapes, edging roadways or building raised steel beds.

The five height options and our ability to fabricate on site enables us to provide edging solutions as diverse as our client’s requirements.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT GARDEN METAL EDGE SIZE

As a guide we recommend burying half of the edge in the ground when edging driveways and paths. For edging borders, we recommend burying a third of the edge in the ground.

If we are installing edging during the construction of our project, it is likely that our edge will be used to retain sub bases or create changes in levels. In those cases, higher edges are usually required. We are happy to advise or work to a specification.

To order, simply call us or fill in our same day quote form. Either way we will prepare a quote by hand for your approval.
