Paver Edging


Hello, i live in Long Island, NY I am installing 6X9 cambridge interlocking pavers on a 40X15 section of driveway which will not have a car on it. One edge will be against the house, the other edge will be 40' along an 18" raised flower bed.
My first question is should I use plastic edging or a concrete footing? It is a straight 40'.

Second: I intend on putting an curbstone/edgestone along the 40' to keep the flower bed from spreading onto the driveway... should i put the curbstone on the inside or outside of the plastic edging?

Thank you for looking.

Sheet metal would be strong enough to prevent spreading?
