Painted steel or galvanized because you can easily use a string trimmer. Rocks tend to break the string or quickly wear it down. With plastic, unless heavy, the trimmer will cut through it. And steel is easier to install than rock, plus with rock unless it is cemented grass will grow through it into your flower bedsWhat is your preferred edging for flower beds and such?
In Australia we call the tool a "whipper sniper". It is a it funny isn't it. But I think I might weed whack next timeWe have a shallow gutter around the front flower beds. We tried the heavy-duty rubber edging, but with our soil, it kept heaving up and becoming a tripping hazard. The gutter allows us to mow and if grass moves in, or a plant moves out, it is easily taken care of with snipping or pulling.
Deborahjane, I love that term "whipper snip"! We "weed whack" but your descriptive term is so much better!
