These durable materials last long, do not chip and look attractive. They work for hot and cold climates, beautifully withstanding rains, snow, extreme sun and winds. However, steel is the best choice. Rusted steel borders are not only long-lasting but naturally beautiful. It starts out silver in color and develops a desirable rust patina that blends in well with garden materials and plants. Slow corrosion enhances a natural look in a garden and accentuates the contemporary, neat and beautiful design.

Heavy-gauge aluminum does not rust, but it is softer than steel and bends easily. Aluminum edging is perfect for classy curves, while steel borders are the best for geometric installations and contemporary garden design with straight lines.
