Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WmsV Much better than the plastic edging
Despite UPS dropping 1 on of the 3 boxes off the truck (i assume) the edging arrived in good shape without any bent channels. The pieces slid together easily and secure to the ground w/ the supplied stakes. Making corners like others have suggested is easy. Just cut the edging halfway w/ a hack saw or jig saw, bend over a 2x4 and bury the cut side down because it is sharp. Very clean look!

EasyFlex 24 ft. Aluminum Landscape Edging
This edging is terrific. I installed a bronze kit around a tree in my front yard and a black kit around a tree in the back yard. These kits each came with four six foot sections of aluminum edging and 12 anchoring spikes. The edging is designed so that you can slide the pieces together giving you a sturdy and almost seamless install. I used a string to measure and layout approximately where I wanted my edging to be installed, I then used a pick and gardening spade to dig a small trench about 3 inches deep around the trees, next I formed the edging to the correct contour by bending it around my stomach. Once I had the shape I wanted I set the edging in the trench and slid the pieces together, I then staked it down using the included anchoring spikes. If you do not need to use the entire 24 feet of edging you can simply cut it down using a hack saw. Once it was installed in the trench I filled the trench back in with the dirt I had removed. It required about 2.5 bags of mulch to fill each ring. Total time to install was about 90 minutes per tree. If you dig the small trench and back fill it I am not sure you would really need to use the anchoring spikes. I found this edging the be excellent and would highly recommend it.
Should last for many years

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sebastian Good for a life time.
This was exactly the product I was waiting for to re-do my tree ring. I had placed the black plastic edging before, and i did not like it.
This new tech Aluminum Landscape Edging Kit is easy to install and looks great. Even though the price looks a little expensive, when considering that it will be there for a lifetime, it is worth it. I am not going to touch it for my lifetime. I also have peace of mind since it is aluminum: it will not rust and it is safe.
The 24 feet was good enough for my 2 oak trees; two 6 feet pieces for one ring. The 10 inch long galvanized steel spikes were really good enough to keep the ring in place.
I recommend this to every home owner, and request them to consider this item first, when you are in the market for landscaping. It is well worth the money spent.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JPN80 Easier for Curved flat edging, Wear gloves to protect against metal splinters, might need Wd-40 to slide edging together
As the name states, it's fairly easy to install - outline the area for the edging, build a trench, and hammer the edging into place with the nails. I would recommend wearing gloves when removing the items out of the mailed packaging to avoid metal splinters especially from the bag of nails.
The only challenges I had was trying to make the edging stay straight - no matter what I tried, it would curve in some sections; so I changed the design to reflect a curved pattern. The second minor challenge was keeping the edging level since the backyard slopes into a valley shape. Lastly, the third minor challenge is if mud get's into the grooves, it doesn't slide as well even if all the dirt has been washed out - I used WD-40 and the edging had no problem sliding again into place.
The edging seems to hold up well against nickel to quarter size hail; I didn't see any dents or scratches. The nails are beginning to show rust - I'll probably paint those Rustoleum painter's touch in metallic oil rubbed bronze to complement the bronze edging.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bobby Bronze EASYFLEX Aluminum Landscape Edging
I wanted to use the EASYFLEX to replace another brand that I used but it was made of plastic. After less than a year the plastic began fading and developed cracks and chips from regular lawn care.
I first wanted to test EASYFLEX on my smaller tree rings. The EASYFLEX is pretty simple to work with however it doesn't perform tight turns too well - something I expected with any metal edging. I was able to conform the EASYFLEX into my small 21" circle with the use of ratchet tie-down strap. It worked quite well but the EASYFLEX tends to bend easier at the slotted holes made for the stakes.
It's also difficult to slide the ends into each other to lock. This is not the design of EASYFLEX so I don't fault the product. I was making a circle tighter than what the material was intended for. In the end I got the result I wanted.
I did not need the stakes - once I got a 1/3 of the EASYFLEX into the ground it held securely.
Overall the EASYFLEX is a nice design with the ability to interlock running lengths together or onto itself as I did with my tree rings.
The paint does scrape off if not too careful.
My only complaint is the stake system and the slotted holes. I think a better staking system could be made. The stakes are provided and are really huge nails. They are metal and will rust but the effectiveness of the stake system is questionable since it is pinning the EASYFLEX at the middle point and done so at an angle.
I chose to bury about a 1/3 of the EASYFLEX and it worked well. I did not "cut" the ground first but rather wet the area where I intended to install the EASYFLEX with a water hose and then using a rubber mallet drove the EASYFLEX into ground. Doing it this way seemed to keep the EASYFLEX tighter in the ground versus cutting the ground with a shovel.
I believe the EASYFLEX will hold up much better than the plastic system.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 59Model Very attractive edging solution!
I'm not a fan of the black "plastic" landscape edging in some landscapes, so finding an attractive bronze landscape edging kit was an unexpected bonus! We haven't had the opportunity to do the install yet, but the edging kit arrived packaged well and looks very solid and stylish. The stakes are a nice length and should stay in place. I can see that the sharp metal edges will require some caution and gloves. We plan to use this edging near our front entrance, where the bronze will provide a more attractive look in our yard. I'm very interested to see how this holds up.... we've had to replace some of the old cheap plastic stuff due weedeater and traffic wear and I'm hoping this holds up better. In the meantime, it is a very nice look!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oldcaliforniakid Easyflex Landscape Edging worked great!
When our city restricted our garden watering to one morning a week, it called for the removal of my ground cover to conserve water. I chose Home Depot's 2 cubic ft. brown mulch by Vigaro to replace the ground cover. In order to keep the mulch in check and off my decomposed granite walkway, I installed the Easyflex Aluminum Landscape Edging. It was strong, rustproof and bent easy enough to conform to the curves of my walkway. Love it!
