Features & Benefits
Installs quickly & easily without special tools or skills
Unlike other edging products which require special skills or tools, Straightcurve garden edging products are designed to be installed quickly and easily with a mallet and drill driver. This means anyone (with little to no experience) can install the product and achieve a consistent, high-quality, professional finish in far less time than is typical using other garden edging products.
Designed for child and pet safety
Metal garden edging has become an increasingly popular option for homeowners and gardeners who appreciate the aesthetic and structural properties it offers. One of the often-overlooked drawbacks of using some traditional metal edging products is that they can leave sharp edges in easy reach of children and pets – not so if you choose Straightcurve; all our edges have rounded tops, so they’re not only great looking but child and pet friendly too!
Suitable for use in hard & soft ground
Whether you’re installing our products on soft soil, hard ground, or even concrete, we have an installation system to suit. Our website provides detailed instructions, spec sheets, step-by-step installation drawings, bracing selection tools, and even installation videos to make it follow-along simple to install edging, retaining, or planters in or on any soil type or ground.
Flat packed for easy transportation and site storage
Some garden edging products need to be made-to-measure and pre-shaped to project specifications which means they may not be able to accommodate last-minute onsite changes and may be unwieldy to transport and store onsite. Our products are delivered flat-packed for easy, cost-effective transportation, and to make them easier to store and handle on site.
Creates curved edges, straight edges, or a mixture of both
Straightcurve products are designed for curving and straight-edge applications, or a combination of the two with compatible connections. Our Flexline products create smooth, flowing curves whilst our Rigidline and Hardline products stay perfectly straight and true. Straightcurve products give you more options at the design and construction stages of your home landscaping projects.
No welding, clamping, preshaping or drilling required
Installation of Straightcurve garden edging is much faster and easier than traditional methods because there is no welding, clamping, preshaping or drilling required. Where other metal edging products require a certain level of skill, experience, and special tooling to achieve a quality finish, Straightcurve is designed to allow anyone with basic tools to easily install the product and achieve a lasting quality finish.
No need to bury ⅓ of the retaining products
Our above-ground range of edges has cleverly designed bracing systems for retaining which means you don’t have to bury 1/3 of the product, as is the case with traditional systems. For instance, with some metal retaining systems you’d have to buy a 600mm high product to have 400mm showing above ground (with 200mm below ground). With Straightcurve retaining, if you want to install 400mm high panels, you simply buy the 400mm panels and use the compatible bracing system – a much more cost-effective way of achieving the desired result!
Connector plates and installation pins already included
With other in-ground metal edging brands on the market, you have to specify and separately purchase connector plates and pegs. This adds cost, adds something else to remember, and adds extra difficulty when it comes to installation. All Straightcurve products come in sets to minimise accessories needed and make installation much quicker and easier. Our connector plates are already attached and all panels have pre-drilled guide holes – simple features that significantly improve the ease & speed of installation.
Looks great and stays true
We designed the range to look amazing from day one of installation and to stand the test of time. Once the quick & easy installation is taken care of, Straightcurve is also designed to stay straight (or curved) & true. In other words, once it’s in (or on) the ground it’ll stay strong and stay put.
Thick & sturdy construction that lasts
Straightcurve products are long-lasting and durable – we design and manufacture them to last. Our above-ground edging for instance is thicker than others on the market at 2mm. And each product comes with a minimum structural guarantee of 10 or 15 yrs (depending on the finish).
