General Questions

Is there a local vendor in my area that I can view a physical sample and purchase from?

You can order Edging Homekit products directly on our site, or you can view Coyote Landscape Products at any of our distributor’s locations.

How long will my steel lawn edging last?

With proper installation, this lawn edging will last over 20 years due to the heavy-duty materials we use to manufacture our products including mill steel. Our finishes also contribute to the lifetime of the product. Our powder-coated finishes last over 20 years, while our raw finishes last over 10 years.

What is the difference between galvanized and raw steel?

The steel we use can be hot-rolled or cold-rolled. At times, the cold-roll has a shiny appearance which looks like galvanized or plated steel, but it is still raw. If you are concerned that it looks too shiny, then it probably is cold-rolled steel. If it appears as a dull-grey, it is galvanized.

How do I know how much steel edging I will need for my landscape project?

There are two different ways to determine how many feet you will need. For straight edging lines, use a tape measure. If your edging is curved, use a rope or water hose to lay out your project. Once you do this, measure that material with a tape measure to determine how many feet you need. You also need to make sure you include the measurements for the overlap at the joints in the steel edging. This is very important and sometimes gets overlooked.

Why should I use steel lawn edging versus plastic or aluminum lawn edging for my landscape projects?

Steel lawn edging is used to create a clean separation between planting areas, grass, mulch and rock or gravel. This steel lawn edging allows these areas to retain soil and moisture, but keeps areas from overlapping, or unwanted grass from entering. Our edging can be used to help with walkways as well.

Do you have specs on the curve radius that it can be shaped to fit?

We do not have specific specs on the curve radius; however, Coyote steel lawn edging can be bent into a total radius of five feet depending on the thickness.

Installation

What are some best practices when installing steel edging?

To install our steel lawn edging it is best to dig a small trench that goes 2-4 inches below the soil. Make sure most of the edging is covered by the soil or rock. To dig the trench, you can use either a small shovel or pound on the edging and stakes with a small rubber hammer ensure only a small portion of lawn edging (less than 2 inches) is shown above ground.

How do the RawEdge straight edging pieces connect?

The RawEdge is a finish that is available on a variety Coyote steel lawn edging products. This finish creates a nice patina over time. Our straight piece of edging in RawEdge allows you to attach overlapping pieces with either Hairpin Stakes or our handy Speed Clips.

Is it possible to install the TerraEdge backwards?

Yes, if you installed the TerraEdge correctly, the roll-top seam should be on the less visible side. We suggest the seam of the roll top to be visible from the inside of the edging.

Which way should the tapered stakes be installed on the lawn edging?

Tapered stakes generally go on the less visible side, but they can face whichever direction that is most aesthetically pleasing to you.

How do you connect two PerfEdge pieces together?

Use either Hairpin Stakes or Speed Clips to fasten each piece together.

How should I cut my steel lawn edging?

A hacksaw is the best way to cut your steel lawn edging. Other ways to cut the steel lawn edging include a reciprocating saw, angle grinder, or circular saw with a conundrum blade. To cut the edging, you can either cut all the way through the steel or cut along the lines and bend it until it breaks. Make sure to wear protective, safety gear when cutting steel.

Product Questions

What product is better for residential landscaping in a location that has salt in the air and water nearby?

All of our products, except for RawEdge, work well in a salt-air environment. We do not recommend RawEdge in a salt-air environment, as it will patina (rust) more quickly.

What product is better for residential landscaping - EcoEdge or TerraEdge?

Both are great products for residential landscaping. The EcoEdge is a powder-coated product that has interlocking pocket connections at the joints for easier installation and long lasting durability against soil expansion. The TerraEdge is a straight piece of edging that you can either overlap with Stakes or use Speed Clips for attaching two pieces when installing into the ground.

How flexible are the RawEdge and TerraEdge products?

These products are flexible and sturdy steel. You can even take the lawn edging and bend a loop over your head. Our edging radius goes as low as an 18-inch radius and up to a five-foot radius with our heavier thicknesses.

Which types of stakes are used for steel lawn edging?

There are two main types of stakes used with our lawn edging; interlocking stakes and hairpin stakes. Interlocking stakes are used with our punched lawn edging while hairpin stakes are used mainly on our straight, un-punched edging. The TerraEdge and RawEdge require 10-inch hairpin stakes. EcoEdge uses the tapered interlocking stakes.

What is TerraEdge, RawEdge, EcoEdge and PerfEdge?
