Product Description

Master Mark Plastics 60-Foot Timeless Form Professional Landscape Edging provides a quality, affordable option for Do-It Yourself homeowners. Blocks spreading of grass, while making a neat border. Can be used to form straight borders or gentle curves. Master Mark Plastics has become a premier name in lawn, garden, and building supplies throughout the world due to the fact that we are one of the largest and most experienced recyclers of HDPE plastics. High Density Polyethylene plastics, which include hefty weight materials like milk jugs and detergent containers that do not easily disintegrate. Therefore, this garbage would last many years in a landfill. Our recycling operation takes this plastic, grinds it up, sterilizes it, and treats it for further use in our lawn and garden products and composite decking materials.

This was intended to separate a common front lawn, to provide a barrier to encroaching crabgrass from the neighbor's yard. I liked the idea of a single piece of edging, without having to use shorter lengths. Big mistake! There is no way this is 'professional' by any stretch of the imagination. The material is thin plastic that is impossible to keep in a straight line when placed in the small trench needed to position the edging. Perhaps it would work in a serpentine form, which is what it ended up doing anyway. Several attempts were made to get the material perfectly straight, but it was impossible. The descriptions by the manufacturer make it difficult to determine the specifications of the product. My suggestion is to go to Home Depot or Lowe's, in order to touch and feel the product and determine if it meets your needs.

I've used this type of edging on other occasions but they were always different brands. I was impressed with how sturdy this is and its also tall enough that you can easily get more than 3" of it buried. You need at least 3" to keep rhizome spreading weeds from just going under the barrier.

I used this to outline my vegetable garden. I buried it deep enough that the top lip just is just a little above ground. Just high enough that I can put my weed whacker against it to get a nice clean edge on the grass.

Before using it, I unrolled it and laid it out full length in my back yard to let the sun straighten it back out. I let it lay out for about 2 days (1 day was overcast). I don't think it takes that long, I simply had other stuff to do, so it was 2 days before I got back to it.

I used an edger and spade to make my trench and tried to do about 8-10 feet at a time to give myself enough of a trench to work in. If you try to dig 1-2 feet and jam this stuff in, it simply won't work. The portion above ground will fight you. This is true of nearly any edging. It is flexible in 2 dimensions, not 3. As I got a portion in the ground, I placed a heavy rock (or paver) over it to keep it in place while I worked the next section. As I progressed, I moved my heavy rock along with me.

You have to do the work of digging a sufficient trench, or making a slot. Don't expect to just push this stuff into the ground.

I live in NC where I get to fight with red clay, and it took me about an hour to install 60 feet of this edging.

Now that I know that this is good stuff, I'll be buying more to finish the remaining areas around my home.

My only gripe is that instead of using bands to hold the coil shape from the factory, they drove plastic spikes through it that you have to cut. They were annoying, but not a deal breaker.

I was a lttle leary about buying this edging after reading some of the reviews, but found that if you unroll it and let the sun warm it up its easy to use.
Also cutting a straight (vertical) edge is important to get a nice finished job.
I used the Fiskars #129 stakes instead to hold the edging in place. Much cheaper and works well in my soil.

I am a complete novice and I installed 50 feet of this stuff in 2.5 hours with no special tools. The material itself was decently thick. Its thin enough to be bendable and to put stakes or garden staples through it. (Don't expect this to be thick enough to be hard plastic border though. That's not really what this stuff is.) I got 60 feet of border for less than $30 bucks so that is very inexpensive.

Having no idea what I was doing I did the following: I used an old spade and dug out a trench. I put the plastic in place and I used a hammer to pound in a bunch of metal garden staples through the plastic and into the dirt to hold it in place. I then packed dirt back in around it on both the grass side and the mulch side so there wouldn't be any gaps. I was surprised that I actually pulled it off not knowing what in the world I was doing and I even got a bunch of compliments on it. Other notes: its too thick to cut with scissors or a knife so I used my giant pruning clippers to cut the extra off because that is what I had sitting next to me at the time, but make sure you have something that will cut this thick stuff.

We recently moved from Arkansas to Arizona and the yard needed a lot of work. I needed to install a border in the back yard and found that the soil conditions here are very different from what I am used to.

I've used similar materials in the past in different types of ground. My yard in Arizona required that I dig a trench with a pick to install the border. (Ground is extremely hardened.) The material forms well to make curves and with some effort and a little back cutting you can do right angles. The height was perfect to set in and leave a couple inches for separating rock and grass. This is a very durable material and there are no worries about the sharp edges found in metal or hard plastic trim. I would recommend this border for most landscape and gardening needs.

I have used this type of edging before and liked it much more than the type that you have to hammer into the ground and connect to the previous piece. As it was getting later in the seasaon, I took one person's word to straighten it out and leave it in the sun to soften up prior to installing it. It worked very well especially since I was putting it in in a straight line. It worked well. Thanks.
