The aluminum edging advantage:

Overall Rating: 5/5
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.
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.

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.
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.
quality product, lightweight, straightforward installation, easy to shape, stays in place for years.
