Log Roll Wooden Lawn Edging
Advantages: Decorative, treated wood, reasonably priced, simple to install.
Disadvantages: May not suit all gardens.
Both of my lawns are well kept and the edges are trimmed regularly, but to distinguish between the lawn and flowerbeds we have installed Log Roll Lawn Edging at the main flower beds around the edge of the lawns. At just 6" in height the Log Roll is ideal for breaking up your garden and could be used for decoration around the edge of either your lawns or your flower beds. Each log is attached to the next through lengths of heavy duty galvanised wire which are stapled to the flat side of the wood. The wire runs through the entire length of the log roll and with a length of around 5ft 11" it does go a long way. You might be wondering that it would be expensive to install in your garden, but at just £4 from any decent garden centre you will find it both affordable and very useful in keeping your garden in good order. There are a number of online retailers offering a similar product, but you would probably be best collecting it yourself from one of the major retailers such as B&Q. To secure the log roll you can always purchase large pins which can be hammered into the ground to securely hold the log roll in place. Online I have seen these for £1.99 each, so they are by no means cheap, but pretty much essential when using such a product as the log roll.
The log roll comes rolled up, which is the easiest way of transporting it and very useful for when you are applying it to your lawn edging. At just 6" tall the log roll is subtle and I think it has really finished off the whole look of my garden by tidying the edges up. The log roll can be used on both straight and curved edges as it is so flexible. The log sections are apparently pressure impregnated for protection against rot, which is very useful if it is true as the logs are always in contact with the ground and so would soon rot otherwise. The log roll offers a decorative finish to my garden, and I would strongly recommend anyone with untidy borders to take a look at this product.
Summary: If you are looking for this type of product then I advise you shop around - prices vary wildly.
