Oly-Ola’s 40 Years of Edging Innovations timeline can be viewed here. The timeline outlines Oly-Ola’s advances in the edging industry as well as congratulatory messages from a number of long-time customers.
Oly-Ola was founded in 1978 with the introduction of a newly-designed landscape edging product called Edg-KingTM. At that time, the most popular landscape edging sported a V-lip bottom which made it prone to pop out of the ground. Edg-King was designed with four horizontal grooves and installed with stakes at a 45 degree angle into the turf to keep the edging firmly planted in the ground. Edg-King found immediate success with landscape contractors.
In 1990, Oly-Ola made a decision to sell their products only through landscape contractors and independent garden centers, eschewing the so-called big box retailers. “We support the smaller independent retailers and pride ourselves on not selling to chain stores. The retailers with whom we do business have been very loyal,” says Aymie Clayton, Oly-Ola Edgings Sales Manager and 20-year edging expert.
In 1992, Oly-Ola introduced Bric-EdgTM, the first “L”-Shaped paver edging. At the time of its introduction, no paver edgings were available that could be installed underneath the pavers and the available edgings did not allow for turf growth alongside the paver after installation.
To this day, Oly-Ola continues to have the landscape industry’s strongest comprehensive guarantee: 100% plus for 20 Years Includes All Freight and Labor as well as “Hassle-Free Shipping” with orders delivered by the industry’s fastest shipping. Oly-Ola maintains a large inventory 12 months a year, so there are no back orders.
For four decades, Oly-Ola Edgings has been producing the most complete line of vinyl paver restraints and polyethylene/vinyl landscape edgings in the landscape industry. Constructed of strong 100% recycled materials, Oly-Ola has 12 different restraint and edging styles available. Oly-Ola offers the industry’s strongest and most comprehensive guarantee, hassle-free shipping, fast delivery and products that are sold exclusively through landscape distribution centers, landscape contractors, architects and independent nursery/garden centers. All edging products are made in the USA.
