Rite-Edge

Rite Edge is the multi-award winning aluminium lawn edging system designed by landscape architects which keeps that pristine neat garden appearance with perfect straight, corners and enviable curves and shapes around borders, lawns and pathways. Rite Edge is incredibly easy to install and is used by both professional landscapers and garden enthusiasts alike ensuring that ‘just edged’ look without all those hours of back-breaking edging and spade work.


Rite Edge is manufactured aluminium alloy 6063 to a T6 hardness so no painting, staining, rusting or replacing to worry about as the product is designed to last at least 27 years. Aluminium being light it’s easy to handle and comes in long lengths with a unique telescopic design to make installation very neat, quick and easy, secured in place with barbed fixing stakes. The profile has a smooth round top edge, so no sharp edges to cut you or damage the lawn mower blades and a castellated body which gives maximum strength for heavy lawn movers and prevents lifting by frost.


Joining lengths could not be easier owing to Rite Edge’s telescopic design by sliding one piece into the other and we would recommend a 5cm overlap at the side of each joint. For a flush fit simply place a small piece of Rite Edge behind the joint and slide the pieces together at the front. We generally recommend around 4% in your length calculation for the joints, alternatively packs of joining pieces can be purchased separately.


Rite Edge is available in a range of different colour options from the standard Natural to the anodised colours of Brown, Green and Black. Each length measures 2.438m and is sold in packs of 14 lengths giving 34.13m per pack. Smaller packs are available in Natural and Brown with a shorter length of 1.2m and sold in 4 lengths per pack giving 4.8m per pack overall.

Q.What is RITE-EDGE made from?
A.High grade Aluminium alloy, commonly used in aircraft structures for its long life and flexibility.
Q.What is the best way to install the RITE-EDGE in my garden?
A.By digging a small channel 10cm deep where the RITE-EDGE needs to be positioned. Our installation notes explain this in more detail.
Q.Can I cut it to different lengths?
A. YES - by using a hacksaw (this is a saw with a special blade for cutting metals such as steel and aluminium. They can be purchased for less than £10 from a good DIY store/shop. (Do not attempt to use a wood cutting saw, as it will just blunt the cutting edge of the saw).
