    Garden edging suggestions

    Is the plastic stuff they sell at mitre10 any good?
    Or better to buy 2nd hand 1/2 rounds from the vineyards?

    Go large. Railway sleepers (there must be shitloads from the reconstruction along the Kaikoura route). Then add VC's concrete mowing strip.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    see if you can get macro slab wood from a sawmill put black polythene under it where it has ground contact.you can have either the bark/ curved side out or flat side.then you can add VC's mowing strip later.

    you can or could buy that recycled plastic edging from warehouse 100-150mmwide -dunno if you still can.i did but uses it for flares on my truck due to big feet and body lift .turned out spot on and cheap as chips.Infact when we euthanised my original truck we removed the mags tyres and my"flares and weve got em as spares for my hilux!

    As others have stated concrete edging is a good option. A 100mm wide strip gives a good mowing edge and looks good, especially if you mix in some black oxide (4%). Just don't do the naff (and very retirement village like) little waves down the length. Strong straight lines look best.

    Another option if you have an older type house is to mortar down old bricks onto a concrete strip or compacted basecourse. A contemporary take on this is to use Firth Holland pavers, the full black oxide ones look best.

    If you are looking for a simple low key approach, get some aluminium edging. It can be pinned into place and is L shaped so you can grow lawn over it to the top edge. Cirtex do one version of it and I think you can get it domestically from Bunnings. This also works great used as an outside edging for paving or gravel area. There is a cheaper black plastic option too.

    Timber is another more economical option but doesn't last and needs to be stained to look half decent.
