  • Creates a soft surface to kneel on
  • Suppresses weeds while allowing air, water and nutrients through
  • Made of durable, recycled-tire rubber with the look of bark mulch
  • Makes gentle curves or straight borders
  • We also offer 12" Edge Border

      Comments about 5-1/2" Recycled Rubber Edge Border:

      I use this to edge my flower beds (islands in lawn). I've tried pound-in edging, ditching, and mulch, but the grass always invades, and my husband doesn't know where he can mow, so I end up doing lots of hand trimming. Now, he can set the mower wheel on the edge-border, and get all the grass in one pass!

        I'm using this between a flower bed and lawn, and it's working well. I plan on buying more for some other beds.

        • Edging by back of lawn
        • Edging by fence
        • Less work edging

        Comments about 5-1/2" Recycled Rubber Edge Border:

        I used it along the border of fence and neighbors driveway to control the weeds.
        I also used between the fence and lawn area so that we didn't have weed too close to our vinyl fence.

        The only problem I had was cutting it to fit around the fence posts. It is so strong that it's really hard to cut. I also was about 2 ft short in one area and wish I could buy this product in shorter lengths.

          We have a serpentine garden in our yard and this edging allows us to follow the contour of the garden easily. I mow with one wheel on the edging, giving a clean cut eliminating the need to trim.

          Comments about 5-1/2" Recycled Rubber Edge Border:

          The backing was very difficult to remove. The product will not lay flat even a year later. It does look neat and weeds are blocked.

              Comments about 5-1/2" Recycled Rubber Edge Border:

              We used this edging around a very large flower bed so we could mow right up to the mulch-line! It is terrific. Our riding mower doesn't even budge this edging so we don't have to weed-eat around it. We love this edging.

              Didn't perform like I expected. Hard to install around curves, doesn't lay flat, ends curl up, hardy weeds grow through.

                  Finally a product that keeps my edges neat after the initial application. It has saved hours of work this summer alone.

                  Comments about 5-1/2" Recycled Rubber Edge Border:

                  Very sturdy and easy to place. Center of roll was too curled and hard to keep down. Makes great edging for areas like under a chain link fence.

                    Recycelded tire mulch really works as a straight mulch that a lawn mower goes right over-no weed wacd=ker necessary! However, I am not sure how to cut the product to go around curves as claimed in the catalogue.
