I might be thick and stupid but i am not senile, yet! Even after a stroke the memory cells manage to connect! But I was wrong on the timeline by a few months.

Having read through the thread again, how about laying the metal strips loose against the lawns cut edge and then driving down bars separately up tight against the strips, that way if you do hit the stones you can try again close by the initial hole without distorting the strip.

Back from my weekend away and catching up on my posts.
I like the idea, Tagwex - it's pretty certain to work, I think. Thanks. I'll keep you informed when I get around to trying it out.

Hey good guy, I saw this advert in a sunday supplement this morning and thought of you and your edgings. Have a look at website www.everedge.com. Phone numbers are 01 2889771 and 087 2565680. Don't know whether it is good, bad or indifferent, you will have to make your own mind up.

Thanks for the thought, Tagwex. Nothing wrong with your memory!
It was seeing an ad for this product that sparked my initial query as, when I saw it I went "if only!" The problem is the very stoney soil under my lawn. When I do get around to it ( millions of other jobs later!) I'll probably use a steel strip like this, but with pins placed separately so I can, hopefully, avoid the worst stones. I don't care if it rusts - it will outlast me!
