Mild Steel Edging
Commercial grade landscaping edging designed and fabricated in the UK to a very high standard.
This mild steel metal edging comes in two formats:
The clever joining system is pre-attached and allows almost invisible joints between sections. All fixings are at the back of the edging - see our installation guide for more information.
- A robust 6mm thick - ideal for straight edges yet flexible enough to form curves. As a rough guide, 6mm thick edging will form a circle with a diameter of 5 metres. This edging has a longer lifespan than the 3mm edging but has a slightly greater cost. 6mm edging comes in standard lengths of 3 metres. (6 metres for larger orders)
- A more discreet 3mm thick edging. Great for curves and angles, easy to handle and more economical than the 6mm. Standard length is 2 metres. (4 metres for larger orders)

Fixings and accessories
All bolts etc are provided free of charge and will be delivered with your edging.
ALS offers prefabricated corner pieces to provide sharp 90 degree bends. These are supplied with all necessary fixings. Also available is a joining kit for when you need to trim and re-join the edging on site.
We recommend burying half of the edging in the ground when edging driveways and paths. For edging borders, we recommend burying one third of the edge in the ground. Therefore the visible up-stand required dictates the height of the edge required.

We generally use self-employed couriers which allows us to avoid load restrictions imposed by larger firms and therefore deliver longer lengths for your convenience. HOWEVER this means that your edging will be offloaded by hand. Please advise if you wish us to set your delivery onto bearers so that you move the edge via mechanical means.
Contractors must ensure that products are fit for purpose - if in doubt, please get in touch

When should the edging be installed during a landscaping project?
There are two opportunities to install our edge during a project.
Early on in the works process when driveways/paths and been excavated but gefore a subbase has been laid. Edging will then retain hardcore etc.
Once the hardcore base has been laid, the edge should be set into the hardore layer (before compacting!) to enable a shapplow scrape to be created easily.
We recommend building ground levles up on both sides of the edge during construction to prevent heavy machinery such as vibrating rollers placing lots of pressure on one side of the edge
When edging borders, it is advisable to do so before planting
For lawns, place the edging before the final levelling as the steel can be used as a guide to soil levels.
