    These are so vintage looking, they are great. I have those in my yard, and I don't like them, and slowing replacing them. My question is how did you get the metal edging to mount together?

      @Anna Ibarra Hi Anna- I inherited the circles already put together (and plenty rusty),so I'm not 100% sure. What I can tell you is that there are pins holding the two ends of the edging together. I assume that the same way you'd attach them to extend them is the same way you'd attach the two ends together? Kind of like if you were circling the edging around a tree... I'll see about getting a photo in the daylight if that will help you!
