Answer: 
I received four of these and there was no connector included. I contacted Master Mark and was informed that there should have been a connector included. Master Mark shipped the connectors to me at no cost and I received them only a few days later. If your Lifetime Professional edging does not include the connector you can contact Master Mark and they will send it to you.

Answer: 
Yes, on one end only.
You could probably use a short piece, maybe 4" to 6" long of 1/2" pvc pipe (fits a little better then pex) or 3/4" pex pipe to sub for an additional connector. The supplied connector is only in the top tube part. I used a steak behind the skirt joints to keep the skirt part even.

I have 2 parallel 60' runs for a dry set flagstone & pea gravel sidewalk I'm making, and they must be straight. I've read reviews of this and similar plastic edging where people have a hard time getting it straight. This is much less expensive than steel so I'd save quite a bit, but if it's hard to get it perfectly straight I'd rather bite the bullet and go with steel. I really appreciate any feedback you can give me.

I had a few straight runs with my job. I put in 12" wood stakes every 2 ft. and 1 ft. where I ahd a few tight radius's then backed it up with gravel on the yard side and Cyprus mulch in the flower bed. I liked staking it because you can run a screw in it and it wont' ride up or sink in the ground and it keeps it pretty straight. But that's just me.

Answer: 
Absolutely. I was able to apply some soil on the outside, press with my shoe to push in, and in my case add a little more gravel to the inside and press to form a very straight line.
Suggestion to lay out in the sun to add flexibility during installation was really spot on. I was able to move directly to the installation site and put in place.

I don't see why there would be a problem adding this to an existing flower bed. Press the soil away from the bed, insert the edging and then push the soil back, or add soil against the edging.
At the bottom of the edging there is a "T" shape form that allows the product to anchor into the receiving substance, soil, gravel, sand, etc. above the "T", there is approximately 3 inches, followed by the round tube at the top. This makes up the 5-inch product. Read Less

To install this edging with the least amount of digging, use a Half Moon Edging tool. It will trench without disturbing the soil on either side and the upper lip on the tool can help to insert the plastic edging into the trench. No backfilling needed!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 71 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I purchased this product based on reviews. I was not disappointed. I especially appreciated the input to lay out the edging in the sun to warm it up so that it would lay flat for installation. If I had done this project in the summer it would have gone faster, since the edging would have softened sooner. But I appreciated the fall temperatures for digging the edge contour into the hard clay BEFORE laying in the softened edging. It was really easy and will help the barrier needed between the St. Augustine grass and the pine straw laden Japanese Holly Fern bed. Thank you everyone for your positive posts. I benefited from your time. October 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Landscape edging Gives the garden a nice clean look. Didn't take long to put in. Lay it out in the sun to make it pliable, Wet the soil down , dig a trench and bury it. I love the look! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lifetime Professional 40 ft recycled plastic landscape This was simple after watering the dry area that we were trenching. It was simple to install. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Garden edging Second project using this product. Performs well once in place but can be difficult to work with because it only "relaxes" somewhat when warmed in the sun. However, that's a more then reasonable trade-off for it's durability and appearance. Would definitely use again if I needed to edge a new garden area. October 11, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MOSTLY HAPPY WITH PURCHASE Thought that the product was very good, but it definitely needed stakes (that did not come with it). My gardener installed this. Had to go out and buy multiple packages of metal stakes at HD ($4 for 4) and he put one in about every 6 ft. It was much more costly because of this but in the end, it looked very nice and so far seems to be doing a good job from keeping the dirt off of our driveway. September 6, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by It's not as simple as it looks It was a terrible job to unroll the edging and lay it out in the sun under weights to straighten it out. Pulling out those plastic packing nails was also an unnecessary chore. Using cable ties would make it much easier to unroll and would leave no holes Sorry for being negative but the job took much longer than expected. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Real nice, quality product. This is how I did it. Form me: I read the reviews for this border product after searching the net for something very substantial with good quality AND IS OF RECYCLED MATERIALS!!!. I found this product to be exactly what I needed. After reading some negative reviews, it seemed that there were some 'operator errors' which were not the fault of the product. Read and know what you are buying first, ask if in doubt. The border is of a nice, heavy quality and very workable - if you unroll it, put a weight on each end to stop the curl, (I used a 60 lb bag of concrete on each end, what I had at hand) then leave it in the sun for a few hours, it becomes very workable. Note: You may want to use gloves after it warms up because being black, it really absorbs the heat and is very hot to the touch but bends like a rubber snake! Planning and String line: Before I installed the border, I used a string line placed 30" out from my property border. For my install, I found the 30" mulch width area is better then the standard 24" being my plants are 12" out from the property line. This gives me a little 'breathing room' for re-mulching later on. I ran the string line to a few taller stakes to get my straight lines located to establish the border. I dug down a little deeper then the 5" of the border to give me a little working/adjustment room. Note: You can use the string to find a leveling line if you keep the string very tight so you don't get any sag in the string line causing a dip in the stakes and border. For this, staking along the way or short string lines work best. I also used a 6 ft level spanning 4 stakes at once to keep it within level. You can use a 2 ft level and a wood 1x3-6' or 8' ON EDGE providing the 1x3 is STRAIGHT! It doesn't ahve to be dead on, close is ok, you can adjust it as you go. Bends: For making the bends, if you can, make a slow radius bend, not a real tight bend, its easier to make. Remember, slow bends and curves are easier on the eye then sudden ones. Besides, this product will not make a very tight bend. I found about a 15" to 18" radius is about it. Staking: I then used the 12" wooden landscape stakes from HD placed every 2 ft apart and closer on some curved areas to keep the radius even. For staking the curves, make the curve with the border first then stake it unless you have a very long curve. Note: You may want to invest in a small 2 or 3 lb hand held sledgehammer as a regular hammer doesn't have quite the drive to 'send home' the wooden stakes. After I found my starting/leveling point, I worked from there taking into account the slow up and down of the grade but tried to keep the stakes level as much as possible being my property is pretty level. If you have uneven ground I would adjust the stakes accordingly to the grade but try to keep away from sudden ups and downs. I drove down the stakes an inch lower then were I wanted the top of the border to be. I did this so the top tube part of the border could rest on the top of the stake so the border would not sink into the ground after time. I secured the border to the stake in the skirt part of the border about an 1-1/2" or so below the tube to the FRONT (yard side) of the wooden stakes via 1 in. fine Sheet Rock Screw I painted up for the job. (I used the fine SRS's - from HD found in the hardware section) so the screws wound keep the splitting of the stakes to a minimum, splitting will happen, but its no biggie). Back filling: I back filled the inside (mulch) area first with some gravel/dirt along the bottom to keep the bottom of the edging from pushing in from the front and causing an inward 'bow' on the top tube. I then mulched the back area pushing the mulch tightly up against the border then back filled the front. I have crushed 'pea' coral here in the Florida Keys which was easier to work with. Final touch: I raked and leveled the areas inside and out of the border, cleaned up my tools, gave the new border and mulch area a nice water soaking to clean off any dirt and dust, got my 'observation chair', put it in the shade and had a nice cool drink then 'observed'. Suggestion: I suggest taking your time, DON'T RUSH! Plan it out, get your ideas down, sketch them out if you have to for reference. Try to keep it level as much as possible, get the right materials and tools - don't skimp to save a 'buck', that doesn't work. Take frequent breaks, drink water - keep hydrated and look at what you have done so far. 'Eyeball' your lines form straightness, adjust things if need be. Just take your time and it will come out great !!! May 3, 2016
