Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LabradoodleRanch Easy installation!
We just edged off 27' of a flower bed easily with these! They go in the ground easily on the spikes and the tape seems to be holding the half-logs together nicely. I can see these aren't cedar so I don't know how many Michigan winters they'll endure but the ease of installation and appearance have me very satisfied right now. Oh, and they can edge around a corner easily because of the construction's flexibility.
Next step: fill the new flower bed with flowers!

Looks great, but the metal rods are flimsy. They satisfied my gardening needs.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AWhy Nice looking but poorly designed
We bought 20 of these last spring to go around our flower beds and by the end of the summer they were beginning to fall apart. The pieces do not stay attached to the plastic strip on the back very well and the whole border begins to sag. The stakes are in the center of the piece so the ends don't stay in the ground or line up with pieces next to it.
This year we are purchasing new edging because so many of the pieces are broken and the whole row of edging is misaligned. This wasn't inexpensive but it is cheap. I wouldn't recommend this product to anyone unless you're interested in buying a product you still have to fix and/or modify in order to have it serve its purpose.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HomeDepoter Nice if you like doing more work
Had to add 2 skews to each piece of wood they feel off the staples. Its poorly constructed. When adding more than one its hard to make them look seamless. The "stakes" rust fast and I needed to still pound them in further.
Im happy with the result after putting in more money and time into modifying it. I would not buy again or recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cptfl350 Do recommend for small area edging
I used nine 3ft wooden edgings in total to cover an area of 21' in length. I don't believe this product is suitable to sustain much weight and therefore recommend it more so for enhancing garden decoration. Happy with my results.. And for the price, it was well worth it !

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dman1971 VERY NICE TO DRESS UP OUR PATH
I purchased 12 of these these as I wanted to have a fancy edge around our pathway from our driveway to our garage. We are very pleased with the outcome. However since these only have 2 rods to stick in the ground which are not on the ends. It will be almost impossible to get them in a straight line and all the logs will shift every which way. So what we did to resolve this was bought some 1 inch x 2 inch x 6 foot boards and a box of 2 inch wood screws. The additional supplies cost us another 12 bucks but was worth it especially if you want your logs straight. We used 1 board for every 2 log edgings that we purchased. What we did was laid 2 of the log edging next to each other in our driveway. Then attached the board along the bottom where the black strip is located, in order to connect two of log edging units together. We put a screw threw the board and into each individual log. Then we installed them into the ground in the now 6 foot sections. Very happy with our path.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chipper Plan on modifying or re-purchasing every 3 years
Initially I felt the price was worth what appeared to be a well-thought out and quality product. I bought over 120' of this edging would hold up well. Unfortunately I did not accurately read the label and mistook the Cedar coloring to be actual Cedar instead the "wood" product which was indicated. By the end of the first summer and escalating through the end of now the beginning of the 3rd Spring, the color faded and is now grey, ~ 75% has rotted or simply fallen apart, ~ 50% of the backing staples have pulled out, and ~ 25% of the metal stakes no longer stay in the wood many coming loose even before the wood rotted. Also, the plastic backing stiffens and twists so that it is impossible to maintain proper alignment. Despite the aforementioned drawbacks, the aesthetics are second to none and work extremely well to hold back the slope of my gardens. Yes, I thought of buying actual Cedar and making a similar product myself but with needed drilling and securing of stakes and finding plastic backing and long staples with which to secure it, I'm hopeful that less effort will be needed to help ensure a better product life by sealing the bottom and back of the product to help prevent rotting and using garden pins (like those to hold weed block in place) for better alignment before the plastic hardens. Sure am hopeful!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gardeninglady123 Not bad, but not cedar.
I bought these quite a few years ago. They were very stylish at first and lasted for about four or so years (took them up in the New England winters) before rotting on the bottom where the wood met the ground. I also had trouble with the rods coming out and the staples popping off after a few years. They were placed in a shaded area, too, so figured that didn't help with moisture, etc. I ended up, reluctantly, tossing them out. I should have kept them, since I read one reviewer's excellent idea at keeping them standing up straight (attaching them to plank wood in sections so it stands up). The ones I bought were better quality than the ones they sell now. I'd buy them again if needed but this time I'd attach them to wood planks as the other poster did. I'd also use a clear wood preservative on them before installing. Maybe that would help them last longer. Yes, I would recommend these to a friend - with reservations and cautions so they'll last longer.
