Retain Skins Garden Edging - Corten (Rusty Weathering Steel)
Due to popular demand we now offer a 2mm option for those on a budget or looking for a lighter weight product.
These are also far easier to bend into full circles for around Trees etc.
These 2mm x 100mm (High) Corten weathering steel strips are 2.4-Metres (2400mm) long to deliver a beautiful, long-lasting solution to many Landscaping projects;
These lengths are designed to be used with our Retain Skins joiners and pegs, our entire Garden Edging range is made from the same material. This product is 350mpa grade high tensile.
Our happy customers use this system for;
- Garden Edging - Curved or Straight
- Paving perimeter
- Planter boxes
- Lawn edging (a clean attractive straight or curved edge)
- Lawn & Garden division by simply burying them to your required height
They can be cut to your required length with a grinder and a cutting wheel, by using our 2mm Tool-Less Joiners your cut edge will not be seen as it sleeves inside the joiner. This makes the install easy and stress free!
This system is fast & perfect for a DIY application, no bolts, no screws.

- Note: These are cut raw (silver metal finish) - Over time (a few weeks) you will see the silver finish rust over with a beautiful even rust coating. Once this happens the material is sealed and stops the rust process.
- Grab your Tape measure
Measure up the length of your garden beds, add all of these measurements together and you will have your Total Lineal Meter requirement.
Then divide this total number by 2.4 (The length of our edging pieces).
Eg. 30-meters divided by 2.4 = 12.5 lengths required (we would recommend rounding up to 13)
- Joiners - Straight, Outside Corner, Inside Corner.. Confused? Don't be.
Straight Joiners; If you have 10 x 2.4m lengths you would need 9 x straight joiners . It is always -1 of your total edging lengths
Outside or Inside Corner Joiners; If you need a crisp 90° corner these are perfect, picture yourself standing at your corner, if the edging is running away from you in both directions you need an Outside corner. If you are standing at that corner and the edging is coming back towards you, then you need an inside corner.
These are a great way to start & finish your edging if it runs into a wall or fence etc. Our 3mm pegs give you a clean finish in this situation.
If using our joiners, these have a peg attached. As our product is so thick we have found pegs in between are not necessary for most applications. Simply hit the edging in at least 5mm into the soil to hold the edge, in some cases pegs may be required for complex shapes or curves.

If you order edging from us and start your project and realise you didn't buy enough pegs or joiners, simply call or send us an email.

Can this be flexed into curved garden beds?
Yes, with our straight joiners, you simply join the lengths together and shape your garden to your hearts content.
What about around a tree? a circle?
Yes, circles are possible - In this situation we simply recommend the use of our pegs, secure an end and start curving whilst hammering pegs in to keep it in place. After you have created your radius, you can hit the edge into the ground and remove excess pegs.
Do I need pegs if I buy your Joiners?
Yes, for the 2mm Edging we recommend a Peg placement for every length of 2mm edging placed. If creating curves, these pegs are invaluable to make the install process very easy.
We have found over time, the edging settles into the soil and will hold - at this point you can remove the pegs to produce a clean seamless look.
All of the joiners also have a Peg built into the component, simply sleeve in the edging and mallet into the ground.
How fast is this to install?
This system is unmatched in how long the installation takes. All cut edges are hidden behind the joiner, this means you can focus on cutting it - Not on how straight you are cutting it!
Sleeve the pieces into the joiners and with a rubber mallet you can hit the joiners (which come with a peg attached) into the ground. After this is done, because of the strength of our 3mm product you can simply go around and hit the top of the edging to sink the bottom edge in to help give it that rising from the earth look.
