Log Roll Wooden Lawn Edging
Advantages: Looks nice
Disadvantages: Couldn't get it to stand up on its own
We had some small fences down the sides of out pebble garden where it goes into the flower beds to give it a nice edge but the fences had rotted in places and it was looking very tired and tatty down there so we had a look in B&Q and found these log rolls and thought they would do the job instead.
We didn't need it to be too high as it was only going to be for show so we decided to get this one that was 0.15m high. It works out about 6 inhces high for those like me who find it hard to visualise things in centimetres etc these days. The length of the roll is 1.8m which is about 6 foot long. We had to buy six of them to fit down the sides of our flower beds.
The logs are joined together with metal wires and when you unroll them you need to make sure they are bent properly so that the roll lays flat before you try laying it in place as it is harder to do when you are bending down trying to get it to fit in. We laid ours out on the patio and flattened it out well first. It was quite easy to flatten out, the wire holding them together is quite thick but was easy to work with.
We pushed the logs slightly into the soil a bit but it felt like it was still going to fall over so we got some small thin sticks (they were bamboo sticks) and cut them to a bit longer than the log roll and then pushed them in behind the roll to keep it up. It might be better if you are putting them at the edge of a lawn and the flower beds are higher than the lawn but our flower beds are the same height at the pebbles in the centre so there was nothing to lean the roll against.
The roll looks really nice one we got it in place. It is a nice colour, it sort of matches the wood we used for the decking, having a slight green tinge to it where they have treated the wood.
I would recommend these log rolls if you are looking for a small edging to your garden or flower beds. The roll this size costs just under £8 each, they do a larger roll, which is twice the height of this one, and it costs £12.98.
