Steel Types

CorTen Steel Edging

CorTen Steel Edging, also known as weathered steel edging, has been developed specially for outdoor use, and is incredibly popular with garden designers and landscapers.

If you choose CorTen Steel for your landscape edging, you can expect to see a natural protective layer build upon exposure to the elements. This layer creates a beautiful patina of copper hues, rust, and bronze.

This barrier ensures that your steel edge is incredibly long-lasting and resistant to corrosion, while maintaining tensile strength.

CorTen steel requires no upkeep, and depending on the steel width it will last a lifetime. It is truly a brilliant option for your paths, borders, and driveways!

Mild Steel Edging

Mild Steel Edging is a low-carbon steel, and as such it is easy to weld and form. This steel is also incredibly durable, and depending on the thickness purchased, it can withstand the weight of people and vehicles.

This steel develops a stunning golden patina over time.

How does the Steel Edging fix together?

Our steel edging is fixed together via a simple tube and brace system. Round solid 16mm pins are knocked through the tube and brace connectors providing a seamless strong connection.

Please note:

  • Includes pins and welded-on fixings.
  • Please request an installation guide for further details.
  • If you require a bespoke size or have any questions, please contact our sales team; we will gladly assist you.

Steel Edging – Self-installation FAQs

Our metal edging is made from the highest quality steel available in the UK. Steel edging creates a clean, fine definition between different areas and levels of your garden and outdoor space. Since steel is a premium product, it is incredibly strong and durable. Unlike other materials used for edging such as brick and wood, steel will not deteriorate as fast overtime and will be less affected by the varying weather conditions we are used to in the UK, making it a viable investment.

Installing steel edging not only creates definitive lines, but it also makes your space easier to maintain and more presentable, which is ideal for large estates and commercial spaces. Mowing over your edging creates an extremely satisfying, fine, crisp line that you cannot achieve with other products. This is now being noticed amongst the construction industry, particularly for high end projects that require an edging that is more subtle and traditional but equally as strong as other options such as concrete edging.

We have a wealth of experience and knowledge supplying and installing steel edging for stately homes, building contractors, home owners, landscape architects and garden designers. We are committed to providing a professional service right from the moment you begin working with us, from the initial design stage through to installation. We will always act with integrity and care when it comes to our clients’ unique needs; constantly thinking about the bigger picture to provide personalised, clear, and considered advice across all our products.

Our solid steel edging can be installed by our professional team or supplied for you to install by purchasing our self installation edging. You can also choose to have the steel painted or for a more traditional and rustic look it can be left to weather down to its natural golden patina. Either way, the results look stunning once the edging has been installed.

Our most popular fencing consists of a 20mm diameter round top rail with 16mm diameter round or 25mm x 6mm flat under rails. The spacings between each rail usually decrease towards the ground, unless stated otherwise.

All our edging is welded on site by our experienced teams for maximum structural integrity and longevity, creating a seamless finish, whilst creating flexibility when installing on more complex projects, allowing the edging to flow naturally along boundaries.

Our mild steel and corten edging is welded to solid 16mm steel pins that are hammered into the ground. Our edging arrives in 6 or 2 metre lengths with every joint welded together with a steel plate. All joining plates and pins will be welded lower than finish height so they will not be visible from above.

Our metal edging is commonly purchased in mild steel; however, we can offer corten edging too. Our height of edging ranges from 100mm to 300mm, from 3mm to 6mm thickness. We can fabricate and install bespoke depths and thicknesses if required.

We advise that 100mm x 3mm or 5mm would be suitable for lawn edging, flower borders and small paths, whereas the 150mm x 5mm is recommended for edging on driveways to withstand vehicles. Our 150mm x 5mm edging is also suitable for areas that require a sub-base build up as the edging acts as a strong retainer.

Building contractors and landscapers often require our teams to install our steel edging before their final stages of groundworks as the edging sets definitive lines and heights for the contractors to work to, speeding up and simplifying the final stages of landscaping.

Our 300mm high edging offers a practical solution to flower bed borders that are sloped that need terracing or generally higher ground level changes that need retaining. Our 300mm steel edging is also a great way to create raised beds for growing veg or flowers.

Our 3mm edging offers the greatest flexibility to create tighter curves and form smaller circles, whilst the 5mm can create sweeping curves and is more suitable for straight runs.

For tight radius curves and/or circles under 2-metre diameters, we advise that you speak to one of our sales team during the consultation stage to determine whether we would need to prefabricate any edging before work commencement. We can fabricate all bespoke curves and circles and can install too.

Our 6mm edging is ideal for straight runs, retaining larger quantities of soil whilst still forming gentle curves.

Unlike other edging options, including wood, mild steel edging will take much longer to deteriorate and will be less affected by the varying weather conditions. Our 5mm mild steel edging for example would take a minimum of 30 years to rust away. If you choose corten then you are guaranteed that your edging will never deteriorate, lasting a lifetime, as corten resists corrosion by forming a protective golden oxidation over the steel. Please visit our FAQ’s for further information on Corten.

It is secured in the ground by 500mm long, 16mm round, ground pins at 1 metre intervals.

To make a 90-degree corner, you can simply purchase one from our online shop and install it.

Our 3mm steel edging is our most flexible steel edging product and can create sweeping curves. If you are purchasing 5mm steel edging, as a general rule anything under a 2.5-metre radius curve would need to be pre-rolled in our fabrication unit. Please feel free to contact our team if you require bespoke curves.
