I'm again turning to the best experts around, 
the ShopTalk group!  Just to keep on topic, we're 
looking at asphalt paving our driveway, parking and 
trailer turn-around area (it's currently gravel).  The 
adjoining flower beds, currently restrained by old 
4x4 timbers will be redesigned into a more 
"curving style" edges rather than the strict straight 
edges as required by the 4x4 timbers. 

I'm looking for a durable but not too costly material. 
Labor cost is an issue, as I will not be doing this 
myself.  I've been through the multiple lathe bender boards 
and would like something better.  Also, not a fan of 
the plastic edging board that seems to last about 
1 year.  There must be better options.  

Anyone familiar with the rammed continuous concrete 
edging>  Cost?  How about long lengths of steel, about 
3-4" wide and retained by large spikes?  

Any other suggestions?
