Lawn edging

Creative helpers, marking out clear borders

You might be familiar with this phenomenon: You mark out the edge of the lawn with a spade – you’ve only just finished when you might as well start all over again. Actually that’s a reason for satisfaction, because it shows that your lawn is feeling good. And so it’s no longer growing in height; instead it likes to spread out. 

To stop it getting too high-spirited and sprawling too much, we recommend our bellissa lawn edging with its patented connection technology as reliable border guards. This means you can ensure permanent clearly defined lawn areas which are therefore especially easy to care for. The variable dimensions and versatile designs leave almost all design freedoms open to you. From classic to studded to Corten look – where your creative wishes are concerned, there are practically no limits to using bellissa lawn edging. Your lawn will envy you…

A little tip on the edge: it’s best to pre-cut the border with the bellissa lawn edger – this will make inserting the lawn edging even easier for you.

Good to know

Corten steel - Naturally strong protection! Also against slugs and snails.


Hard as steel against weathering due to its unique rust patina: our lawn edging made from Corten steel doesn’t just fit perfectly into the natural environment of your garden, but is also highly resistant to through corrosion. The patina created here forms an invincible blocking layer and makes the lawn edging weatherproof and durable.

And to stop you being surprised: our Corten steel sheets are generally delivered free of rust, that is to say as bright rolled steel without a rust look. It can however happen that natural corrosion has already set in at certain points – but this is not a problem, it is what’s intended.

Copper oxidisation: a definite guard against snails and slugs

bellissa Corten steel lawn edging is the natural enemy of all slugs and snails who would be happy to pay a visit to your garden. The small amount of copper (less than 1%) contained in Corten steel is quite enough to discourage the uninvited visitors from crawling onwards. Combined with slug and snail mucus, the copper oxidises, which creates an irritant substance, causing every snail and slug to turn around at once. 


You want faster corrosion? Here is our tip:

Simply treat the lawn edging with our environmentally friendly rust accelerator for Corten metal. You can make it yourself from natural ingredients in a few minutes.

Recipe for Corten steel rust accelerator:
• 1 part table / cooking salt
• 1 part diluted acetic acid
• 3 parts water

Application: Clean the Corten metal sheet thoroughly and degrease it, then “mist” it with a plant sprayer filled with your environmentally friendly rust accelerator. Alternating between moist and dry will promote rust formation further. In order to speed up the corrosion even more, it’s best to repeat the misting daily. After use, just rinse through the plant sprayer with clean water.

Lawn edging FAQs

How do you lay a lawn edging?

In the following video we show you how our lawn edging is laid and what accessories you will need.




Which type of lawn edging is right for me?

On our category pages you can find a lot of helpful information as to when a type of lawn edging is right for you.

Is my Corten lawn edging delivered ready rusted?

No. The Corten lawn edging is delivered as bright steel. It only rusts over a period of time. The Corten patina has to form first. This can take up to 6 months. Formation of the rust patina also depends on weather influences.

How do I link the lawn edging sections together?

The bellissa lawn edging sections are easily linked together with the connecting loop supplied. You only need a screwdriver to thread the loop into the appropriate hole. Our Youtube video on this subject shows the process very clearly:

Can I lay the lawn edging on a slope?

This is possible. You just need to watch out for the slope and cut evenly with the spade. Of course a straight surface is much easier.

Should I use the bellissa lawn edger to insert the lawn edging?

Using the bellissa lawn edger makes sense, as it has a fold at the top edge, meaning that you will always cut to the same depth. If you decide against our lawn edger, you will need to mark your spade (possibly with a white chalk mark), to ensure that you always cut to the same depth.

Will I need the bellissa ground anchors?

We recommend using the bellissa ground anchors if you want to give added stability to your lawn edging. If the ground is soft, it can also make sense to position a ground anchor every 0.6 metres. Please phone us if you need further advice.

Can the lawn edging sections be individually shortened?

The bellissa lawn edging sections can be individually shortened, for instance with metal shears. The zinc layer will be damaged after shortening with metal shears. It is important that the affected point is treated with zinc spray after cutting.

What other accessories make sense when laying bellissa lawn edging?

For laying, we also recommend adding a small piece of wood and a rubber hammer to knock the edging evenly into the ground. Take a look at our Youtube video on this subject:

Is the lawn edging weatherproof and protected against corrosion?

All bellissa lawn edging is galvanised, giving long-term protection against the weather. 

Can you bend bellissa lawn edging to make a clean 90 degree angle corner?

bellissa lawn edging has a thickness of 0.65 mm and can be bent to make a clean 90 degree angle corner. The connecting loop makes individual angles possible. We do however have other lawn edging and mowing edge edging which inherently cannot be bent to form corners. For these products, individual corner parts are required, which are shown on our web page as accessories for the lawn edging types concerned. 


Can bellissa lawn edging be curved or laid in wave form?

bellissa lawn edging has a thickness of 0.65 mm and can be curved individually. Here is an example from our Youtube video: 

How deep should lawn edging be set into the ground?

We recommend digging into the ground to a depth of at least 8 cm, in order to give the lawn edging sufficient stability.

How high can the lawn edging protrude above ground level?

This is up to your personal decision, depending how the lawn edging best fits into your garden.


Does an ordinary lawn edging help against slugs and snails?

Unfortunately not, but we have other products in our portfolio that do. These are called slug and snail guards. You can find them for sale on our website.

Is a 0.65 mm material thickness sufficient (for robustness) for bellissa lawn edging?

This material thickness is completely sufficient to give the lawn edging a certain robustness. The edging is flexible and yet robust. Other lawn edging with a greater thickness is not so easy to bend and lay in curved shapes.
