Edge Restraints

Fellas

I am tired of buying edging a couple bundles at a time from our local supplier. Currently we have been using Beast Brickkstop Edging which is an ok flexible edging we are paying $10 an 8' piece for!!!

We go through several hundred pieces a year and am in need of buying quantity of quality edging for a reasonable price.

Ideally I would buy something like snapedge for straights and beast for curves

any thoughts?

Go for the best that suits your needs and charge accordingly. Unless you buy it by the pallet, I know "snapedge" is willing to give a good discount.

I swear by SnapEdge.

Tell your supplier you'll split a tractor trailer load if they give you a price break.

I think I pay $9.78 for piece of SnapEdge. That's my supplier's cost to everyone.

Yeah, we use Snap Edge for everything, where we are we pay $9.10 per 8' section.
There is also Dymex Low Profile edging, it's not snap edge, they don't connect together, but it works well with the thermal finish bluestone since they are thinner pieces. The low pro is $7.96 per 7.6' section.

snap edge is great but costly, we use it for straights and beast for curves since its cheaper and no need to cut any tabs. Unilock will offer a good price if you buy a pallet. Even better if you buy preseason.

We've been using Edge Pro edging for the last 5 years. Seems to work great and have no issues with it on any job we've done.

We pay $6.76 per 7.5' piece.
