Concrete Braided Garden Boundaries

When I was traveling in Scotland last summer I noticed that many of the gardens had cast concrete “braided rope” borders in aged concrete and I thought it would be great to incorporate this in our new garden at Grandview. All of the sources for this product however seem to come from the UK. I couldn’t find a North American supplier.

I was speaking with a colleague at salvage business I frequent and he cautioned me that our cold Canadian winters and the frost might not be too friendly to any product coming from the UK in formed concrete. It looked so beautiful to see the gardens edged with this “braided stone” So if anyone out there is aware of a weather-worthy product and local supplier, please let me know.
