  • Easy to use

    Don’t give up your entire weekend to make garden beds and borders! 2xEDGE installs in minutes with just a rubber mallet. Special skills: not required. Work less, relax more. Get it done and get back to fun!

  • Edging stays where you put it

    Don’t waste time straightening and replacing edging that fails you again and again. 2xEDGE has four times the gripping power of a landscape nail. You’ll install once, securely.

  • Long lasting results

    Drilling holes in wood opens it up to rot and speeds up deterioration. Protect your investment. Don’t drill through it! Wrap your edging in steel to keep it intact and viable for years.

  • Change your mind? Change it up!

    Easily layout lumber and try out designs. If you revise your garden plan after installing pull up staples and lumber and simply move and re-use.

  • A healthy edging alternative

    Avoid bringing questionable and harmful chemicals, such as creosote found in railroad ties, into your backyard. Easily use all-natural cedar, redwood, and untreated pine that you can seal yourself.

  • A sustainable solution

    Wood weathers and steel gains a rust patina. Both age gracefully in your landscape. Choose metal and wood, not plastic and composites, and create eco-friendly outdoor spaces right down to the landscape edging you choose.

Easy, Natural Wood Landscape Edging Using Two By Lumber

Looking for a way to transform your outdoor space, add curb appeal, or quickly create garden areas around your property?

Try 2xEDGE (Two by Edge) and simply staple "two-by" lumber to the ground. 

Effortlessly make wooden garden edging with a distinctly different profile compared to typical wood edging options such as railroad ties, 4x4 posts, and landscape timbers.

2xEDGE Rustic Steel Staples are made in the USA out of durable, long lasting 16 gauge raw steel.


Use them with 2x2, 2x3, 2x4, and 2x6 lumber* (which is affordable and easy to get at “big box” stores, local hardware stores and lumber yards) and create eco-friendly outdoor spaces right down to the landscape edging you choose.

​Edging that gets better with time

No other edging offers a natural look in the way that natural wood landscape edging does. Wood weathers and 2xEDGE Rustic Steel Staples gain a rust patina. Both will age gracefully in your landscape.  

DIY in minutes

If quick installation is what you're after, try 2xEDGE. It takes just one tool - a rubber mallet - to install your edging in minutes.

Simply place lumber on the ground, place a staple over the lumber, and tap the staple with the mallet to secure your lumber to the ground. That's it! No digging is required. 

Movable, reusable edging

If you change your mind after installing your edging, just pull up the staples and lumber, place them where you want them, and re-install. 2xEDGE's no dig, flexible design solution won't leave trenches and holes behind in your landscape. 

Easy to maintain and extend

Use 2xEDGE and extending or replacing a section of edging is a straightforward task. That's because 2xEDGE fastens each side of your structure to the ground - not to each other. The result is strong, modular edging and garden borders.


Use 2xEDGE with lumber suited for ground contact such as pressure treated or cedar lumber to make edging and garden borders that will last for years. If you like, use oil or water-based stain to suit your unique landscape and garden design vision.

Two-by lumber comes in a variety of edging heights and lengths available off the shelf, offering you a variety of choices to use in your project.

Works for any edging project

Combine 2xEDGE and the two-by lumber of your choice to easily install flower beds, raised garden beds, mulch bed borders, garden path borders, sidewalk edging, a mulch border around trees (tree rings), vegetable garden beds, lawn edging -- any garden area or landscape design you require.

Modern landscape design? Can do!

The 2xEDGE wood + metal edging solution is a great way to create clean, substantial straight lines that are especially suited to modern landscape and garden design.

* 2xEDGE Staples work with dimensional two-by lumber made of composite wood or plastic as well as solid wood. As long as the lumber of your choice is no larger than 2x6, it will work with 2xEDGE.

Wood stays viable longer

With 2xEDGE your edging remains intact. There’s no need to drill a hole through your lumber for screws or nails and introduce weak spots that speed up rot and deterioration.

More gripping power

2xEDGE staples are more than twice as wide as the head of a landscape nail, and more than four times as wide as the nail shank, meaning your lumber is securely fastened to the ground.

Twice the holding capacity

2xEDGE staples wrap around your lumber holding it in place on each side so that it’s less prone to tipping and movement. Landscape nails offer only one fastening point; 2xEDGE supplies two fastening points by design.

More structural integrity

Screwing lumber together introduces weak spots that ultimately fail so that the co-dependent sides of your structure collapse. 2xEDGE staples fasten each piece of lumber to the ground independently letting you create modular structures.

More utility from two-by lumber

2xEDGE increases the functional uses of two-by lumber by letting you easily stand the lumber up on its long side without digging a trench or using compromising nails or screws.

Wood edging that’s unique

Unlike landscape timbers, 4x4 posts, or railroad ties, two-by lumber has a distinct, streamlined profile. 2xEDGE lets you effortlessly use this distinctive profile in your landscape.
