Mower's edge tree circles

Are you referring to the mulch looking circles that are made of recycled rubber shreds to protect small trees?

No picture, no web site?
Lowes and Home Depot have the mulch looking recycled tire ones.
Never had any luck with them. You have to add weed block under them or the grass and weeds grow right through them.
Far cheaper to preweed, add Preen and just use Cedar or Cypress mulch about 4" thick around the tree.

No. These are made of concrete. I can find a lot of the blocks, but not
like those 4" on one side sloping down to 2" on the other. The 2" side
lays flush with the lawn for cutting.

Thanks for your comments though.

You're certainly free to do whatever you wish, but I wouldn't waste my money on them. When my sons & I did a lawn-care service, we loathed all such things. They never stayed in place, were a huge pain in the butt to mow around, and actually needed extra care. It was MUCH easier to just trim around the tree with a line trimmer.

That ringing endorsement given... I'd guess that your best bet is Menards. Lowes & especially Home Depot don't really carry a lot of variety. You might also look at a large nursery/landscaping business.

i agree with the last post. why use any man-made materials for edging, ie concrete edging. Just cut a nice clean edge and mulch around the tree so you can mow. My neighbor has different colored concrete block edging and looks ridiculous. Think about it.

There are companies like Border Magic and others that will come out and pour whatever shape (circles, curves, rectangles), pattern and color borders you want as a continuous unit---complete with a mower wheel edge. Same idea as machines that pour curbs for streets but more decorative. They work out great and look really nice.

Photo is not my favorite example as the color is a little to unnatural but you get the idea and you can get whatever you want. The diagram shows the different profiles they can lay down for you in whatever patterns. Sounds like you would want the Clean Cut Series in the upper right corner?
