Have you looked at the ASLA Annual Meeting website? They have a list of hotels with special rates. It is helpful to them if you stay in those hotels. Outside of that, just check sites like hotels.com to find good rates at nearby hotels.
Congrats on winning Anova’s grant! That is a huge win!
No problem, Craig. We know we are not the solution for every designer on every job. We just try to make the highest quality products for as many varied applications as we can, so when the designer does need edging, he knows where to turn.
Thanks for all of your valuable input to the discussion.
A quality edging will maintain the designer’s original intent. Each time a bed area is edged by hand the size and shape of the bed is altered by some degree. After years of hand maintenance the lines the designer originally drew won’t look the same.
Aluminum is a much better product, overall than either plastic or steel. Aluminum won’t rust, rot, or breakdown. It is lightweight, flexible, easy to work with. It is safer, with a rounded bead on top and locking stakes.
Important to remember that all aluminum edging is not created equal though. Certain manufacturers make it to thin, and use outdated connection methods.
But most importantly, you said you want it to be inconspicuous. As Andrew stated, Permaloc CleanLine is your best bet for a commercial or high end residential. For most residential jobs, Permaloc ProLine would be more than adequate.
