With our passion for innovation and design excellence we are constantly refining and improving our products and designing new ones that both resolve challenges and open up new possibilities. This means that the architects, designers and specifiers working with us keep checking out what’s new so they can maintain a creative, competitive edge.

When our founder, Stuart Bowie, grew increasingly dissatisfied with the limitations of concrete edging, he decided to stop accepting the status quo and actually do something about it. From humble beginnings in a small rented office, he assembled a fledgling team and designed AluExcel – aluminium edging that combines strength with lightweight flexibility and impressive looks with long-lasting, low-maintenance durability.

It didn’t take long for the benefits of this innovative new product to become recognised, and architects, landscape designers and contractors began to specify and use it in preference to the design limitations of cumbersome, damage-prone concrete.

But Kinley was never to be a one trick pony. For the next decade, Stuart and the expanding Kinley team designed and developed a wider range of outdoor landscape products, extending it to different grades of aluminium, steel, RAL colour-matched powder coated and ultra-hardwearing CorTen weathering steel to push the boundaries of landscape design.


Now our flagship ExcelEdge range can be seen in beautiful National Trust gardens, immaculate public parks and award-winning commercial landscaping projects that are catching the public’s eye. With none of the offerings in garden centres or online stores quite matching up to ExcelEdge products, we have reinvigorated the brand to make it accessible to private homeowners wanting to recreate these professionally landscaped spaces in their own gardens.

Some of these are even displayed on the Inspiration page of this website, and our complete range is available for delivery direct to homeowners and garden enthusiasts across the UK from our fully stocked warehouse in East Sussex.
