Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How long will it take for my edging to arrive?
A. Assuming your order is in stock, normal delivery will be 1-2 days although this may increase slightly in the Spring due to the added volume of sales. Some products, such as ProEdge and Titan are on a longer lead time. Please contact us if you need more precise details.
Q. Is EverEdge Flexible?
A. EverEdge Classic and ProEdge are extremely flexible and will easily curve to virtually any radius. Mark a line across the point where it needs to be bent and form the angle using any sharp right angle edge whether it be in a vice, work bench, 4”x2” timber or even the angle edge of a table.
Q. What depth should I choose?
A. EverEdge comes in 3 depths - 75mm (3"), 100mm (4") and 125mm (5"). This excludes the spikes which are 94mm (3.7"). We recommend that you bury the EverEdge to the very top of the spike (15mm into the edge face). If you have an edge which is not equal to the sizes we supply, say 50mm, simply knock the 75mm EverEdge deeper until you have the correct depth.
Q. Is it possible to cut EverEdge?
A. Cutting EverEdge is no problem, either with a grinder or a hacksaw. The best way to lose any extra material is to lap it behind where you started if possible, or where you are not returning to the start point put a 90° bend and loose the extra along a wall, bank, flower bed etc. This will also add extra strength at the end of the edging run.
Q. How deep should EverEdge be installed?
A. The top of the EverEdge should never be proud of the lawn, if you are planning to mow over the edge. Ensure that the edging top is level with the top of the turf, just below the cut height of the grass. This is indicated in our installation guide when you buy EverEdge.
Q. What thickness should I use, 1.6 mm or 2.5 mm?
A. For most applications, lawn to path or lawn to flowerbed the 1.6 mm is the preferred product to use, however if there is a possibility of vehicle traffic then the Heavy Duty or ProEdge (2.5 mm) is preferable.
Q. How long are the EverEdge spikes?
A. The Classic spikes are 94 mm (3.7") and the ProEdge spikes are 100 mm (4")
Q. How long will EverEdge last?
A. EverEdge has a galvanised coating and a thick layer of plastic powder paint coating. EverEdge will not deteriorate or rust for at least 15 years.
Q. In what situations should I use the Pin and Sleeve system?
A. Only when you have very poor ground conditions, especially very loose earth or sandy ground. It can also help to give extra support to your EverEdge where the edging is supporting a slope or bank. This item is not necessary in most projects.
Q. How does Cor-Ten look when it first arrives on site?
A. Cor-Ten edging and Planters will not arrive on site already with the rusty patina, instead they will be a dull blue steel. Depending on conditions, the Cor-Ten will take between 3-6 months to completely change colour.
