Can I use this edging to separate zoysia grass from Bermuda grass to keep the Bermuda grass from ...

I believe that you could separate the grass at least for a while. However bermuda grass roots will probably grow underneath over time. I am using it to separate zoysia from Loriope aa a border.

Do you need cornerstakes if you are putting iit in a strait line?

Hello, These landscape edging / boarders come with their own steaks, already attached to the steel. HD offers more steaks, with different lengths and they make a corner bracket for the boarder as well.

Can this be used to edge a stone/gravel driveway? Looking to outline and separate my driveway from my lawn.

Yes that would work. I used them on a pebble stone path and they keep the stones in.

Will this work as edging to hold a concrete paver patio in place?

Utilizing the separately sold 12" stake will be useful: The Home Depot SKU #108537. With those then you should not have a problem using the edging as a border. As suggested previously, keep the top of the edging BELOW the pavers.

can I get the col-met 8' steel edging in brown?

Asked by Mike March 31, 2020

Answers

Different regions have different colors available. It is made in Brown (Home Depot SKU# 631042) and may be available in your area. If it is not then your local store would have to generate a Special Order; in that case a 10 piece minimum order would have to be placed.

How thick is the steel? Can it be driven into the ground with a hammer?

Asked by Joker June 19, 2019
2
Answers

Unfortunately the previous answer has some misinformation in it: the edging is 14ga material which is roughly equivalent to 1/16" and not 1/8". A rubber mallet is a good option but I find that a 2-3lb heavy hammer works better if you protect the top with a spare piece of 4x4 or similar. If you don't have those available then a rubber mallet will suffice.

Yes that is the thickness and height. When installing I usually sink the bottom in to the ground a 1/2 inch or more - so if you need 4 inches above the ground probably not a good choice.

This steel landscape edging is very sturdy and effective. Although it's not very wide, it served the purpose of preventing our neighbor's soil from coming underneath our fence every time it rains. Taking apart the two stakes at the end of the edging was a colossal pain, but do-able. (My husband did it by using his heavy-duty plier.) We also bought extra stakes at Home Depot for more stability. We added Mexican river rocks for curb appeal. At the end of the day, it was worth all the time and effort we put into this project AND it worked!

Easy to install. Slip a crescent wrench over the built-in stakes, wiggle back amd forth like your bending a paper clip and SNAP..off they come. Easy peasy! Seem heavy duty and should last.

I am a 53 year old female who does not like yard work. I installed about 90 feet of this by myself at my home in north Dallas, Texas. I first had to dig out the old edging, which was the same type. My home was built in '83 and I suppose that the old edging had been there since then. Therefore I would guess it has lasted over 30 years; which makes it a good value! Installation was not that difficult; separating the spikes from the edging was not difficult at all. I watched the videos first that are provided by the manufacturer on its website. This may not make any sense unless you have already installed some, but the manufacturer says that it should be installed so that once one section is in place, and another is about to be joined, it should be that the new section end should be at the top, joining to one that is orientated with the joining arm down. There was no way for me to do this because I needed to start from the left and work to the right. Still, my installation was successful; so don't let that small detail deter you.

Steel edging is much better than vinyl, easy to install. Painted coating leaves some room for improvement, as it does rust where the paint falls off or the lawnmore/trimmer scratches the paint. I would prefer the older product that was galvanized and not painted. But overall, I am satisfied with the product.

Good product. But take care, if you chip the paint while banging it into place- it will rust rather quickly. Also, if you are in the mists of a big project, spend the extra for the longer more durable stakes. The ones you can detach are pretty worthless to carry any kind of weight. If I can get the pic to load you can see that all the rock and the about to be planted new flower beds have all been made using the product (which has taken me about a year to complete).

It's a great edging system, but it may be a bit more work than it appears. I've always been pretty handy. Col-Met says you may or may not want to dig a trench. Unless your soil is soft and rock free, you better dig a trench--just a couple of inches--because if the bottom edge hits a rock as you are trying to pound the edging down, it's not going to go down. I found it a bit tricky to keep the edging straight, but I found you can use small rocks on each side, in the trench, to help keep it straight (after staking). Then cover them with soil, or in my case with gravel on the other side. Great for containing gravel. Not cheap! I edged about 30 ft. This cost me about $90. Looks really nice. Better than wavy rubbery edging. It's very strong steel, but you can bend it to follow a curve. (This photo showed a nice curve, but the review software made the photo pretty tiny and hacked some of it off.)

Super!
These are wonderful. Stakes easily removed by using larger plier-type tool. Just bend them back and forth and they come off. Using a hammer or crow bar to break the beads won't work. Quality product. Photo of typical larger plier tool attached to review.

My experience with this item
The free steaks are impossible to remove from the edging metal. I have used a hammer and a crow bar and invested almost 2 hours trying to liberate them. I should have just invested in separate steaks. Stan of San Antonio
