Hi Elizabeth,

  We don't have frost heave here. <VBG>

 I worked with metal edging when I worked in landscaping in new
installations. It goes in easy enough and is a lot more durable than
plastic edging.
 You need to install it before the brickwork is done, so the
measurements are very important. The height will be just below the
brickwork, so mowing isn't a problem.
 Using it as a border between lawn and flower beds would be a whole
other story. I don't have any experience with that.
