Plastic Lawn Edging - Save time and effort and create a great looking lawn edge all year round with our Smartedge Lawn Edging system which uses a unique patented biomechanical design to bind itself to the roots of the lawn.
Grass will grow through the A-frames sections of Smartedge Lawn Edging, forming a permanent structural barrier and completely disguising the installation. Mower blades will also pass over the hidden plastic sections of Smartedge Lawn Edging so mowing is not affected.

works well and gives a neat border to the garden. would have been better in a newly landscaped garden and needs to be level, difficult to go down slopes with it
The standard supply of pins is only enough for about every third hole. It would be better if there were pins for every hole otherwise it can stick up a little. I shall be ordering extras.
With regard to a consumer enquiry in the Readers' Exchange section of Kitchen Garden magazine our letter in response to a request for suitable lawn edging materials was published in the March issue...
"With regard to JT's letter in KG December issue, regarding flexible edging to use on his allotment, I am pleased to mention our Smartedge Lawn Edging as sold in our current catalogue.
This uses a special patented design that binds itself to the roots of the lawn as the grass grows through 'A' frames forming a permanent structural and maintenance-free barrier. The product is made from black UV and frost-proof polypropylene. Prices start at £22.95 for 5m roll with 60 pins. I think this will make the perfect edge for the curve of his raised beds."
What The Press Say
Made of 2mm thick polypropylene, this was the highest edging at 5.5in (14cm). It can be cut to fit, either straight or curved edges and its height allows it to retain an edge next to a path or drive. Positioning this edging was fairly straightforward, Gloves are a good idea as its got sharp bits. It comes with pins that are inserted into holes at the top of each A-shaped flap to secure into the lawn (the grass grows through it). I found my less than perfect lawn edge hindered fixing of this edging. In some places the levels dipped and the pins had no surface to key into. Preparation is key to success.
