Julia Fairley added this to How to Choose the Right Garden Edging for Your Outdoor Space10 Nov 2019

There is a very wide range of materials to choose from to help organise your garden edges – anything from wood to wire, plastic to pavers, blocks, rocks, bamboo, steel and aluminium – and all of them have their pros and cons. The ultimate purpose of edging is to define spaces. The most common is between a garden bed and the lawn or courtyard to make maintenance easier, but edging can be used within a garden bed to define and separate planting styles or contain plants. It is also widely used to define pathways where curvaceous lines or clean straight edges can easily be achieved.

5. What is excluded from the quote?Asking a builder what is excluded from their quote is one of the best ways to understand what is included in the quote. It’s a bit like reverse engineering; sometimes you need to start from the end and work your way back. By highlighting items that are excluded, you will be able to ensure that you are comparing ‘apples with apples’ when looking at other builders’ quotes. Some of the more common items that are excluded from quotes include: government fees and charges, consultants’ fees, asbestos removal, retaining walls, driveways, footpaths, fencing, floor coverings and curtains and blinds. If any of these items are required to be included in the builder’s scope of works then they should be included in the quote – and ideally not as provisional sums, for the reasons previously mentioned.

Clean and contemporary, love the corten steel though I highly doubt we can afford it. Also like the way the steel defines the slope of the lawn though I don't really want a lawn. May be to contemporary.
