The simplest and most subtle way to create borders that effectively separate lawn from garden beds is to use aluminium strips – around 60 to 125mm wide.
We supply a very simple system using aluminium strip and galvanised steel pegs. There are other suppliers on the market selling complicated and expensive edging systems made from steel or aluminium that require you purchase various joiners and fiddly hardware. These systems are made with rounded lips that are old fashioned and spoil the clean straight edge that many modern landscapers are looking for.
We suggest you make your borders as you would with timber – but use aluminium instead. All you need are the strips and the pegs. You can order your aluminium pieces pre- cut to whatever sizes you require, or you can trim them yourself on site. Aluminium is quite soft and can be cut with an angle grinder.
