Comparing Powder Coated and Unfinished Landscape Edging
Beautiful landscaping ups the curb appeal of your business or your home, and edging helps you keep everything in place. When you choose JD Russell for your landscape edging, you can rest assured that you are making a sound investment for your design, since our DURAEDGE landscape edging is crafted from American-made steel with the ultimate durability in mind. When you do purchase landscape edging, you will want to consider the difference between finished, powder coated edging that will maintain its strength and its appearance for years and unfinished edging that will continue to evolve in its appearance over time. Let’s take a quick look at the differences, so you know which is right for you.
Are you looking for landscape edging that will be painted with long-lasting color and a solid, consistent finish? If so, then powder-coated, shot blasted DURAEDGE is right for your project. It is specially finished with an electrostatically applied powder that eliminates rust and impurities and it will cling to paint for years to come, so the color won’t fade or wear away. Alternatively, unfinished landscape edging is prone to rust from constant exposure to the elements, but this can be a desired look for certain landscapes. In the Southwest, for example, the rusted look tends to be more popular, as it ties nicely into the desert landscape. The design will continue to change and evolve, which can create a unique aged and weathered appeal that offers something special to your landscape.
While every landscape edging product we manufacture is designed to stand up to time and the elements by being crackproof and crushproof, unfinished edging does still have limited durability in comparison to powder coated metal.
Regardless of which choice is right for you, you won’t want to overlook The JD Russell Company for your landscape edging and accessories.
