CORE EDGE Flexible Steel Edging
The UK’s No. 1 Flexible Steel Edging, brought to you by CORE Landscape Products!
• Create bold straight runs or smooth sweeping curves
• Form Perfect 90° Corners
• Stop Crumbling Edges
• Keep your lawn pristine – lawn mower safe and strong enough to strim against
• Great British Design!
CORE EDGE is an innovative, easy-to-install flexible steel garden edging system, suitable for edging lawns, borders, patios, pathways, and driveways.
Manufactured here in the UK from a high quality 1.6mm steel, available in three face heights and five finishes. Each pack of 5 x 1075mm strips joins together to give 5 metres of edging once installed.
The raw steel has a 20-micron galvanised zinc coating to increase the edgings lifespan.
The product is then finished with a 110-micron polyester powder coating, designed for external use.
The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under extreme heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. This skin creates a hard wearing flexible coloured finish.
Benefits of using CORE Flexible Steel Edging
These flexible steel edgings will not rust or flake, and they will not shatter if caught with a strimmer or mower.
Furthermore, they have no sharp edges so are suitable for back gardens as well as public spaces.
Our unique dual lock mechanism ensures each section is securely connected for maximum strength and longevity. Simply tap the metal lawn edging into the ground to form the perfect edge restraint that will quite frankly last for decades.
The face and the ground spike are formed from a single piece of steel. The spike has a unique fold along the center of the spikes provides maximum strength and prevents the spikes from curling under impact. By reinforcing the spike, we make our edgings ideal for use in tougher ground conditions.
In addition, if soft ground is encountered, our CORE EDGE Pin Accessory can be utilised – the rebar extension simply clips through the ground spike to provide additional stability. This accessory can be retro-fit, allowing you to fix certain points of the edge in place to suit the project.
CORE EDGE can achieve bold straight runs, and is equally able to be bent by hand to create perfect corners and sweeping curves.
They simply tap into the ground to form the perfect curved, straight or angled edge restraint.
The entire range is quick and easy to install – with no specialist tools required, and is available in a range of face height combinations and finishes.

Bright Zinc Galvanised finish or a weathered steel (Cor-Ten) effect.
Our ASTM A588 weathering steel has a unique look. The naturally oxidizing finish makes it especially desirable for many architectural projects. Weathering steels are a group of steel alloys developed to remove the need for painting. Over time they form a stable rust-like appearance if exposed to the elements.
Made popular by the U.S Steel Co. and best-known under the US trademark CORTEN®. They resist the corrosive effects of all types of weather. By forming a coating of dark brown oxidation over the metal. In simple terms, the steel is allowed to rust and that rust forms a protective coating that slows the rate of future corrosion.
Powder Coated Flexible Steel Edging
The galvanised steel edgings are finished with a 110-micron polyester powder coating that is designed for external use. This coating prevents colour fade from UV exposure. This forms a weather resistant barrier guaranteeing a 20+ year product life.
The coating is applied electrostatically and is then cured under extreme heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. This skin creates a hard wearing flexible finish that is tougher than conventional paint and improves scratch resistance.
Secure Connecting Mechanism
The CORE Edge dual locking mechanism provides a rigid connection between adjoining edges on our heavy duty flexible steel edging, helping to provide an almost seamless connection.
Using a pair of long nosed pliers pull both of the thin tabs through the slit in the adjacent edging and rotate them back on themselves.
Once connected… if more hands are available, pre-joined edges can be installed as one continuous length. Making it far easier to create larger curves or complex shapes.
Optional Spike Extension
This ingenious spike extension can be retrofitted to the edging after the edging is installed. If softer ground is encountered, simply look back at your installed edging, if you notice any that appear to be unstable or leaning over slightly, just scrape back some soil from around the top of the spike to reveal the hole in the spike that houses the extension clip, insert the clip through one of these preformed holes ,place your foot against the edging to hold it upright, locate a pin into the clip and drive the pin into the ground using a mallet, the clip expands as the pin passes through creating a secure connection with the edging providing the additional support required.
