    • 2xEDGE Staples are made in the USA out of 16 gauge raw steel (illustration).

      16 gauge steel. Made in the USA.

      All of our staples are made in the US Midwest out of 16 gauge steel, an endlessly recyclable material. We offer coated and uncoated options - both are durable and long lasting.

    • Rustic Steel (uncoated)

      The original 2xEDGE Staple is made with raw steel and will gain a rust patina, aging gracefully in your landscape. Add rustic character to your outdoor spaces with the staple that gets better over time.

    • Powder coated colors & tones

      Our powder coated staples resist rust and are UV-rated. Eight colors and tones to choose from. Add a pop of color to your landscape and garden design.

      Wood edging that lasts longer.

      2xEDGE wraps around lumber, keeping it intact and free of screw and nail holes that can weaken it.

      Wood edging that stays where you put it.

      ✔ 2xEDGE Staples are four times wider than a standard landscape nail, providing four times more grip.

      Wood edging that won't tip over.

      ✔ 2xEDGE straddles lumber, fastening it to the ground on both sides to supply two times more stability than a nail.

      Wood edging that's easy to extend, reposition, and repair.

      ✔ 2xEDGE holds each piece of lumber independently to the ground to create modular edging that's easy to change up and maintain. (If you do change things up, you won't leave unsightly trenches all over your property.)

      Wood edging that offers more utility.

      2xEDGE is designed to stand lumber upright without burying it in a trench giving you maximum usable edging material above ground. (And your wood lumber stays drier because it's not buried in the ground, which adds to its longevity.)

      2x lumber makes great edging
