    Anybody know of a retailer or mass merchandiser that carries Valley View Lawn Edging FITTINGS. It's not hard to find the edging itself but no-one has fittings other than 90 degree.

    I need all the others available.....Tees, 120's and 60's

    Thanks ;-)

    Your dealer should either stock them or be able to order them for you. Bothe dealers I use carry them in stock. Rarely used, but handy when you need them.

    BTW, I always recommend over staking to prevent heaving during winter months. Buy 1 extra kit for every 2-3 20' length pieces, and don't be stingy when staking any curves.

    Thanks for your input :)

    Funny, but I rarely stake this stuff. Never have had a problem with it heaving out. I am in a clay area so that may be a factor I don't know but the first thing I toss are those metal stakes hehe

    Don't take the advice about not staking if your in frost territorie. Frost heaving is what pushes edging out of the ground. Instead of buying extra stake kits, consider using 10" landscape spikes that you can get at the lumber yard or many landscape supply houses work very well for staking edging
