The Ever Edge Steel is highly recommended for the gardener who wants a permanent solution that doesn't take away from the natural beauty of their landscaping. It's offered in neutral colors that will blend in with the surrounding dirt and mulch and is rated by the manufacturer not to rust for 15 years. The price per foot is pretty high, but homeowners won't have to worry about extremely cold winters causing this option to crack and deteriorate.
The biggest limitation of the Ever Edge is that cutting them to a custom size requires access to a saw that cuts through metal, plus cutting the metal pieces will then expose them to rusting if the edge is not treated. The plastic Dimex Easy Flex won't last 15 years, especially in colder climates, but is a better option for edging smaller or irregular beds that require a lot of custom-cut sizes.
We also included options that add character to the garden like the Suncast Borderstone and the Amagabeli Decorative. Options like the Suncast do go a little into the soil to help stop weed or grass encroachment, but not as effectively as the choices that go several inches into the ground.
