Plastic Landscape Edging

What do you recommend?
I have a project to do and the customer wants me to use the black landscape edging to do some large gardens. Has any one used Edge Pro?

I would look into the fiberglass edging. Looks better IMO and easy to install

Royal Diamond is easy to use and looks great. Metal spikes help a ton and make install very easy.

Ace of diamond or black diamond is what we use. save yourself labor, rent a brown bed trencher. We charge $4-5 per linear ft. Straight lines are staked at minimum of every 4', curves sometimes as close as 1'. Make sure the ball is about 1/2 buried under the grassline. when connecting them, cut the top off (ball) off about 3" then overlap into the new edge and stake the connecting pieces.

I'm very anal about edging, seen far to many hack jobs and edged that heave out after the first winter.
