Landscape Edgings - FAQs
Frequently Asked Questions
What is RITE-EDGE made from?
High grade Aluminium alloy, commonly used in aircraft structures for its long life and flexibility.
What is the best way to install RITE-EDGE in my garden?
By digging a small channel 10cm deep where the RITE-EDGE needs to be positioned. Our installation notes explain this in more detail.
Can I cut it to different lengths?
YES - by using a hacksaw (this is a saw with a special blade for cutting metals such as steel and aluminium. DO NOT attempt to use a wood cutting saw, as it will just blunt the cutting edge of the saw).
Can I bend RITE-EDGE?
YES - for gentle curves the aluminium has a degree of flexibility and will bend naturally. For tighter bends or circles the aluminium can be shaped round a solid object such as tree trunk, a gatepost or even your knee!
How do I join the lengths of RITE-EDGE together?
The most effective method is to use the unique Telescopic System inbuilt into each length of RITE-EDGE using the unique extruded shape.
Can I cut my lawn with my lawnmower where I have installed the RITE-EDGE?
Yes - providing you have installed the RITE-EDGE at the recommended 2-6 mms above the ground level of the lawn you can cut over the top of the RITE-EDGE.
I do not like the ridge that you see when you join two lengths of RITE-EDGE together. Can you not have a flat/flush joint?
Yes you can by using our special flush joining pieces.
Can I remove RITE-EDGE once I have installed it?
YES - by pulling the barbed stakes (which retain the RITE-EDGE) out of the ground.
What sort of maintenance will I need to carry out on my RITE-EDGE?
NONE - due to the fact that RITE-EDGE is made from aluminium. Aluminium will not rust; crack, rot and will never need repainting.
Do you offer an installation service?
NO - but any local gardening or landscape service would install the RITE-EDGE for you.
What is the delivery time if I place an order today?
Approximately 7 to 10 working days is the normal delivery time.
Is the product guaranteed?
YES - the RITE-EDGE as a product is guaranteed for quality and workmanship, however we cannot be held responsible for the installation or the use of the product once it has been delivered to a customers premises.
How long will the RITE-EDGE last?
Aluminium has been used in industry and the field of aviation (building aeroplanes) for years and is known to be strong, light and durable capable of giving many years of service. There are installations of Aluminium Edges that are still in good condition after 27 years.
