A long time design secret of professional landscapers, metal garden edging has made its way into the amateur home garden to offer a clean, crisp, tailored and timeless separation between garden beds, grass, paths and driveways. It also serves to keep weeds and gravel from migrating into the flowerbed or garden, preserving the look of a manicured garden.
What are the benefits of steel edging?
There are many different types of metal garden edging to choose from, with various lengths, heights, colours and strengths. Some of the higher end products, like galvanised steel (link edge) are especially suited to a wide range of soil types and conditions. Others, like raw steel (pictured above) require a more protected environment and are not recommended for outdoor use, as they will rust quickly.

The main advantage of metal landscape edging is its strength and durability. This is due to the fact that most of these products are made from either aluminium, galvanised or corten steel. All of which are designed to be able to take on a certain amount of wear and tear before they need replacing.
The other great thing about these products is that they are generally fairly easy to install. For example, if you opt for a stake driven landscape edging system such as Link Edge, the kit will come with metal stakes that simply need to be hammered into place to anchor your edging. Most of these products can also be shaped into a variety of shapes, again using the stakes that have been provided with your edging to help anchor it in. This allows you to create some incredibly unique looking designs within your garden that would be very difficult with more traditional edging methods such as miter cuts, special stakes or even using a lawn mower to cut the edging into shape!
