What depth should I choose?
EverEdge comes in 3 depths – 75mm (3 inches), 100mm (4 inches) and 125mm (5 inches). This excludes the spikes which are 94mm (c.4 inches). We recommend that you bury the spike and a minimum 25mm (1 inch) of the flat face below ground on the lower side. So, for example, if you have a 75mm (3 inch) deep edge, you will nee the 100mm (4 inch) EverEdge.
What thickness should I use, 1.6 mm or 2.5 mm?
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 Classic Heavy Duty (2.5 mm) is preferable.
What colour should I use?
Over 65% of EverEdge sales are in the brown colour simply because we are trying to replicate the colour of the cut turf/soil. Slate, Galvanised (self-colour), Green and Black are just options to give customers more variety if need be.
How deep should EverEdge be installed?
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 all our installation guides when you buy EverEdge.
How long are the EverEdge spikes?
The Classic spikes are 94 mm (c. 4 inches) and the ProEdge spikes are 100 mm (4 inches)
How long will EverEdge last?
EverEdge has a galvanised coating and a thick layer of plastic powder paint coating. EverEdge will not deteriorate or rust for at least 12-15 years.
How much can I install in a day?
This depends on ground conditions. With sandy or clay soil, including preparation, 100 metres a day is achievable. If the ground is rocky/stony it may be prudent to dig out the ground with a pick or spade first to remove any obstructions and ensure a neat installation.
Is EverEdge easy to form into circles?
With a former, one piece (1 metre long) of EverEdge can be bent into a circle. It does help on particularly tight radii to bend the female end of each piece a few degrees to help take off the pressure in the connecting overlap. This can be done in a vice or on a work bench.
Is EverEdge easy to bend?
For curves you can flex EverEdge as you install each length. For right angles, mark on the length where you want the corner to be then bend it over the edge of a table or block of wood.
Can you cut EverEdge?
Yes, you can cut EverEdge with a hacksaw or angle grinder, provided you paint the exposed edge with a metal primer, like Hammerite.
Do I cut the length flush when I come to the end of run and butt up against a wall or hedge?
We recommend that you allow an extra 125mm (5 inches), then bend it back at a right angle and bury it in the border. This way, it will be more resistant to people accidentally standing on the end and spoiling the line.
Can you attach a cut end to an uncut end when completing something like an island border or surrounding a lawn?
We suggest that you allow an extra 125mm (5 inches) to tuck behind the length that you are meeting. You could also secure the two with a pop rivet or galvanized nut and bolt to prevent it springing up.
Can you join different heights of EverEdge?
EverEdge is specially engineered so that all depths will interlink and still retain a flush top.
Can EverEdge be used to retain a raised bed?
Yes it can either against a path or lawn. The EverEdge surface (either unpainted or painted) is strimmer proof. For raised beds higher than 100mm (4 inches) please have a look at our Easybed system.
Where is EverEdge manufactured?
EverEdge is a 100% British product, manufactured in the West Midlands from recycled steel produced in British steel mills.
Can you get someone to install it for me?
