i am going with oxidized steel for a fence and gates in the yard. i figured i'd also do the oxidized metal for edging. one landscaper told me the kids could get hurt on it. we've had 2 bouts of stitches/surgery within the past 2 weeks! so i have to consider what he's saying. maybe a tripping hazard, too?
another option for us is old chicago brick before i order it to put under out grape arbor. i was told that we will have to keep up with it so that the mortar stays so that grass won't grow through.
the other option is marbella and i'll have to do the math but it's probably 2/3s the cost.
i'm trying to consider pluses and minuses like having enough space to mow...
any thoghts appreciated!
