Garden makeover with flexible steel garden edging

Making a Splash
Making a Splash

This stylish, low-maintenance garden makes great use of Oxy-Shield steel garden edging and Lytworx garden lighting.





The project


From site fences and dirt to greenery, Oxy-Shield flexible steel garden edging, podium stands and stunning feature plants, this glow-up has taken over 18 months with several design plans being changed and the hard work and action only happening recently!  






We bought some of the plants from Bunnings. All the edging, the native mix potting mix and the mulch was also from Bunnings.



The grass tree sits in pride of place in the Whites Oxy-Shield Podium Ring, with a wider border using the garden edging.




I used the Oxy-Shield for all the edging. Whether it be 200mm high or 130mm high, it works seamlessly together for a beautiful feature. Can you spot the Lytworx lights in the grass tree area?
