Why use aluminum edging?

Aluminum is a durable, easily formed, lightweight metal that is perfect for landscape use. Aluminum is nontoxic, has excellent corrosion resistance, a high thermal conductivity, and is 100% recyclable.

Because aluminum is a tough metal that will not rust, rot, or crack, it is extremely well suited
to resist the demands of Mother Nature, professional lawn maintenance, and home power equipment.

When properly installed aluminum edgings and restraints will never need to be replaced and will remain beautiful for the life of your project.
