My family has moved many, many times. During all the moves, we have been exposed to a multitude of edging products like plastic, rocks and painted metal. The plastic always deteriorated, the grass always grew between the rocks, and the paint always comes off the painted metal.
I wanted some different, something that fixed all these problems. This is how Edge Right was born.
I had always loved Corten steel. It is used on beautiful buildings, train cars, and many ship hulls. This appearance was the exact look I wanted for my edging. The aged metal appearance of Corten is a great compliment to mulch and it can also take the abuse of the elements and string trimmers. At that point, I had the material that was perfect for edging, now the rest. I wanted it to be easy to install, control unwanted grass, and look better than my neighbor’s yards. :) This is how I decided on the gauge (thickness) of metal, the teeth design, and depth.
This is a no expense spared edging product. We started with making the best product first, then worried about pricing second. While an expensive product to install, this material is likely to outlive the person installing it. Other products degrade in appearance over time; our edging improves overtime!
Here are all the members of our team that get overworked to help provide you with a quality product and excellent service.
Roger Lewis, Jr.President, CEO
Roger, Jr. is the President of Edge Right. He attained a BS in management from the University of Alabama where he graduated with honors. His long exposure to the bamboo industry provided unique insight to how grasses grow (as bamboo is a grass). Roger identified that if you can control the roots, you can control grass. He started a quest to find the most effective and economical way to control grass roots.

Denny KilgoreOperations Manager
After experiences running retail location, production facilities, and garden centers, we were able to steal Denny from them in 2007. Denny was not a stranger before this point either. Denny and Roger grew up together and have been great friends. We are very lucky to be able to hire our friends and even luckier that they have the expertise and experiences need to add value to our company.
