Customer Reviews for Permaloc Aluminum Edging, Set of 6 Sections, 5 Colors
I decided to spend the extra money for this product after trying several cheaper forms of edging. Between edging that cracked and broke, stones that sank and/or heaved over time, I was pretty frustrated with other solutions. I did part of my landscape over a year ago just to see if it would hold up over a growing season and NE winter. I was pleased to the point of now having it installed about 500 feet of edging along all my gardens. This includes straight runs, curves, and even "L" turns. It took some patience to install because my yard is full of rocks just under the surface, If not for that the job would have been fairly straight forward. I ended up buying an aluminum cutting blade for my circular miter saw for cutting as several manual cuts with a hacksaw got very tiresome.
We ordered this edging for a high-end residential installation to complement a more modern landscape. The product is great! Easy to install in sections, simple cuts with a cut off wheel on a grinder and provides beautiful crisp edges.
The one challenge like with any edging is making tree rings or perfect circles. The rigid Aluminum is especially time consuming to install in areas where tree roots are present. (As expected though)
Overall our clients are happy and we are thrilled. I would highly recommend selling this upgrade!
Installment at Golf Course
We purchased this product to replace professional installed plastic edging we had for approximately 10 years. The old edging became bridle and began to lift. After extensive research, we decided to try the Black Anodized. We ordered 16 and 8 foot sections. The installation was easy but is definitely a two person job. I would also recommend ordering extra stakes.
I would highly recommend this product. The material was able to be bent and secured in several shapes. We installed it between river rock and the Tee. The edging has give us the clean look we were looking for.
great but misleading
I like the quality very much, The only problem I had was the size. They say it is 8 foot sections, but once you put it together you lose 4 inches for the connection. So if you need 48 feet like I did you are 2 foot short. Tried to buy extra sections but only sell in packs of 6. It ends up costing me $300 dollars instead of $150 dollars. You might want to specify that in your listing.
Easy to install, good quality. Looks great when you're done, client is happy.
The Permaloc Clean Line delivers just what its name implies. I wanted a nearly invisible separation between two types of gravel along my main entry/walk and needed it to look clean and laser sharp. The only issue I experienced was more due to my site conditions. I couldn't use the supplied stakes to hold the product down, simply because they could not be driven into the hard, rocky earth we have here in Southern Nevada. Instead, I dug a shallow trench, filled the trench with sand, and set the edging into the sand before compacting it with water. Once the gravel was in place, the edging was, and still is, pretty solid.
I Finally Found What I'd Been Wishing For: Permaloc Aluminum Edging
I've just installed the four inch deep Permaloc aluminium edging between several beds and surrounding grass. The proof will come in the spring, when the grass, hopefully, will be held at bay, but at this point I am delighted. I had imagined, i.e., invented im my head, something along these lines -- thin, knife-edged, durable, flexible but saw no such thing in any of the home-improvement mega stores. Then I went on line and found Permaloc. I wouldn't go so far as to say that angling and bending the material is "easy," but it is feasible, and I had a particularly intricate and compressed design configuration, which certainly rendered the process more difficult than a simpler, larger scale layout would do. The beds look neat and tidy, as if everything had just gotten a really good haircut and I am pleased as can be.
Easy to install
I found the Permaloc edging exactly what I wanted. It clipped together easily, and, after digging a small trench to define the area I wanted to bound, it seated nicely with the enclosed stakes. I chose the black, and I am definitely happy with this product.
This is great edging, it never rusts, never heaves, maintains its color. Mine has been down for a year with no problems. It does take a little more effort to install but it is worth it.
A few exta dollars, but you will be miles ahead of your neighbor's crappy, wavy,plastic edging. Could have used a few instructions but I got by.
Clearly ordered bronze color as stated on print-out of order, recieved black!!
Great product, packaged and delivered undamaged, good color choices other than just silver, easy to manipulate into shape, easy to cut with saw, clients very satisfied with look, plenty of stakes, great barrier for gravel to lawn, string trimmers do not destroy.
We use permaloc edging exclusively for our dry-laid stone pathways and patios. Our natural stone flatwork often involves intricate curves and the flexibility of aluminum allows for a professional finish. More expensive than steel edging, but easier to install as it is lighter.
quality product, lightweight, straightforward installation, easy to shape, stays in place for years.
I found the product to be solid and easy to use. Early in the lifetime of the product...time will tell. In rocky ground the 12" inch stakes hit a few rocks that caused them to bend. Not the product's fault, but just something to be aware of. Overall a very good and solid edging.
Like the black finish blends in well. Durable product clean lines. Your shipping is great next day to us. Even your drop shipping is smooth and fast.
Permaloc edging is a great product
Easy to bend and resists frost heave.
good looks, very flexible
Absolutely perfect edging for landscaping. A bit pricey, but worth every penny!
