Cor-ten steel is a beautiful material. It is being used in gardens more and  more and loved for its warm, weathered and industrial look. In my  experience, this edging looks better when it is 1/4" thickness. Anything  thinner and you will see bowing and the edge will not appear clean and  straight, which is it's best attribute.  Also when specifying corten, make sure you get a certificate that verifies  it is truly cor-ten, and ASTM grade A588 or A606.  View Product Website
