St John’s Wood Church

St. John’s Wood church and burial grounds are located next to Lords cricket ground and just north of Regents Park in the heart of London. The St. John’s Wood burial ground dates back from 1807 with the church and burial grounds consecrated in 1814. The burial ground was used from 1814 to 1855 when the St. Marylebone cemetery at East Finchley was opened. There are thought to be some 50,000 graves at the site. The current grounds as seen today date from the 1950’s when the gravestones were removed from the three main lawn areas and forms part of the Westminster City Council gardens. All the flower beds within St John’s Wood Burial Grounds have been edged with Rite-Edge enabling the gardening team to create clear and defined lines between the flower beds and the magnificent lawn areas.

Designed by landscape architects, our multi-award winning RITE-EDGE is increasingly specified in professional landscape designs as the obvious edge for lawns, borders, beds and pathways alike, keeping that pristine neat garden appearance with perfect straight, corners and enviable curves and shapes. Held securely in place with barbed fixing stakes, RITE-EDGE is manufactured from an Aircraft Grade Aluminium Alloy designed to last at least 27 years, so no painting, staining, rusting or replacing to worry about. RITE EDGE, being light and easy to handle, comes in long lengths and has a unique, telescopic design to make installation very neat, quick and easy. The profile of RITE-EDGE features a smooth round top edge, so no sharp edges to cut you or damage the lawn mower blades, and a castellated body which gives maximum strength for heavy lawn mowers and prevents lifting by frost. Stand back with pride and admire that permanent “Just-Edged” look without all those hours of back-breaking edging spade and shear work.
