    Can someone list for me all the different edging options? I can only find vinyl and steel. Are there options besides curbing and some kind of rock?

    You've got it. The only thing else I can think of is a simple cut edge. Vinyl, never in my life will I install it. Aluminum if you can find it. Bricks and stones need to be mortared in. Timbers are worthless in 4 years. There is also Flagstone that is used for walls (rectangles) that I've also used in installs. I can't think of anything else.

    Get creative, whenever your out and about, look at different items from different places. One time I found stone window sills from a masonry company that I was able to use. Originality sets you apart.

    i think the steel is the nicest looking. stone looks good but gets ugly quick and trimming around it hurts and or breaks windows... ive done both

    go with aluminum from Curv-Rite. We use it a lot on our higher end installs. Doesn't rust, very flexible, and strong as heck. It also comes in multiple colors besides plain old silver. No need to edge those beds again.
