    I stopped using cement several yrs ago - for residential patios, walks, it would crack every 1-2' and those sections would migrate away from the rest of the pavement. I was even driving pieces of rebar in vertically every 1' to further solidify it, but it didn't help. Now, I never got complaints about that method, I just wasn't happy with it myself.

    Currently we use a 'plastic' edging, made by Dimex, and also have begun using Curv-Rite aluminum restraint. Really like the ease of use, surprising flexibility and clean, finished look of the aluminum, plus they come with pieces you can slide into the slots between two pieces of restraint to form one continuous piece of edge restraint. And in the heat of summer, it seems to perform better than plastic. But it is a few cents more per foot than plastic.
