Lawn Edging Specifications
Legacy edging comes in a minimum length of 3 metres. It’s available with a thickness of 5mm or 6mm, suitable for driveways and other heavy traffic areas. Alternatively, our 3mm version is suitable for general lawn edging and where a tighter radius is required.
We offer 2 standard heights: 100mm and 150mm. Ideally up to half of the vertical face should be underground, so if you want to see 75mm above ground, go for the 150mm version. Other sizes are available, as well as corten, mild steel, galvanised and stainless steel versions.
Our unique interlocking system creates a continuous length of edging, which easily forms straight lines and acute angles, as well as sweeping elegant curves. Legacy steel edging installation is simple, using only a handful of standard tools. All joints and support pins are hidden behind the edging to leave a completely flush visual face.
To help you create the right shapes, we manufacture 90-degree corners. While our lengths come in 3m lengths as standard, lengths can be cut and a joint plate used to create a bespoke option that fits your exact requirements. For more intricate installations we can pre-bend our edging.
Unlike many other garden edging options, Legacy Edging is made from solid steel. This is most often left to weather naturally, though we can offer a painting service if required.
For larger orders, please call our office, as we can supply some of our lawn edging products in 6m lengths.
Lawn Edging Installation
In addition to supplying on a self-fit basis, we can offer full installation of your lawn edging. Our teams of skilled craftsmen have years of experience in the erection of traditional steel garden edging and work throughout the UK.
We quote on a job-by-job basis, so our recommendations will be based entirely on your needs. If you require installation for a large project, we will be able to quote you following a site visit. The site visit is crucial to establish the lay of the land, the soil conditions and ensure you get the very best steel edging for your property.
