    I am re doing the landscape at a nursing home and they want plastic edging installed around the beds. I need about 200ft of the black plastic edging. I am wondering where do you get the edging in bulk? Do you just get it at The Home Depot or Lowe's? I have never installed it before usually just do dirt edges, stone or brick.

    JMO....plastic edging looks crappy and does not give the look of a professional landscaper...I do natural borders or landscape blocks.

    commercial plastic edging is durable, long lasting and cheap. Its also very easy to install. You can purchase commercial plastic edging from We only use plastic edging on 10% of our jobs but it is a quality product that will last for years.
