    I need to buy some edging to hold back a pea-gravel/paver walkway. Where can you get this short notice? Does lowes or Home depot have it?
    Thanks.
    Also, what is the cost?

    Are you using the edging to hold the PG from the pavers or using it to hold the pavers in place?

    If using it to hold the pavers then you need to use a paver edge restraint. HD does sell it in 8' lenghts.

    I am not sure about the steel landscape edging. I thought that was old school?

    Peace,

    I don't know if its old school, but I like it, its hard to beat steel (sorry, pun). I'm primarily using it for pea gravel border.

    Thanks.

    HD and Lowes sell it, but in my area, their edging is inferior to what I get at some of my nurseries. I usually buy at John Deere landscapes.

    The lowes edging works just as good
