finally replacing the black plastic edging around all our beds. been wanting the ecoborder for a few years, its pricey and finally got it.

I know what i should do and probably will but thought it would be fun to see........ "what would you do"? bought 5 packs from walmart at $55 a pack, got a shipping notice with tracking numbers. 2 days after they were supposed to arrive website said delay. I call to find out whats going on and after being on hold forever, packages are lost, they don't have any stock, have to issue a refund.

I order from home depot at $60 a pack.

the next day i get email from UPS 5 packages are on the way. called walmart tell them to stop the refund. Cant do it already processed. Ok then rebill me. On hold again. they don't show them shipping, don't want to bill me and then refund again if they don't show up. said to call back when I get them. they arrived today, my account shows returned. if it wasn't $300 I would probably just let it go, soooooo....................

I do love it, here's what I got done so far. will have to return the home depot ones :lol:

Me too. If they can’t get it together when you tell them it was delivered, I’d give up on them.

Geez Linda, you try to do the right thing. Shrugging my shoulders here.
Looks great, though!
I haven't even started outside.

I bought the same last year for areas where beds and walkway meet the lawn. They fit the bill.

I like that look, are those little spikes you hammer in the ground to keep it firmly planted?

yes ronnie, it comes with stakes and black connector pins so you can attach the pieces. There's 4 "sections" to a each piece, a stake in each section. i like it because you don't have to dig, just put it on top of the lawn and spike it. the hardest part was trying to lay it out so any cuts are made in full sections. its easy to cut with a hand saw.

It comes in black and red too. best pricing was walmart and ebates offered 5%. Home depot sells single pieces in case you don't need a full box of 6.
