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 1-5 working days although this may increase slightly in the Spring due to the added volume of sales. Some products, such as ProEdge, Halestem and Titan are on a longer lead time. Please contact us if you need more precise details.

Q. Can I amend my order after paying for it?

A. Yes, as long as the order hasn’t already been picked and packed, you may amend your order. Telephone orders can be changed by contacting the sales team. For web orders, please call 01630 417120 (option 2). Web orders will be cancelled and refunded and a new order will need to be placed.

Q. Is EverEdge Flexible?

A. EverEdge Classic and ProEdge are extremely flexible and will easily curve to virtually any radius. To bend, 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. How do I install EverEdge in soft/clay ground?

A. In very soft ground, or in clay, simply treading on the edge or the weight of a mower will push the edge into the soil. To prevent this, place a piece of broken flat tile or brick under each joint or anywhere along the edging.  Using the Pin & Sleeve system may also help to anchor and support the edging.

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″) on Classic and 100mm (3.9″) on ProEdge. 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. Can I install my edging proud?

A. As a general rule we recommend installing EverEdge so that the top of the edging is level with the turf. So not proud. However, in some installations it is desirable to have the edging showing. CorTen and Galvanised (unpainted) edging can be quite sharp so, if the edging will be installed proud, these finishes are not recommend for homes with dogs or small children.

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 lose 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, about 15mm below the cut height of the grass. This is indicated in our installation guide when you buy EverEdge.

Q. What thickness should I use, 1.6mm or 2.5mm?

A. For most applications, lawn to path or lawn to flowerbed the 1.6mm is the preferred product to use, however if there is a possibility of vehicle traffic then the 2.5mm thick ProEdge is preferable.

Q. How long are the EverEdge spikes?

A. The Classic spikes are 94mm (3.7″) and the ProEdge spikes are 100mm (4″). If you need more anchorage, consider using our Pin and Sleeve accessory.

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 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. 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 go fully rusty but can continue to change over a 12 month period.
