Vinyl is final but not very strong. Not fimilar with plastic. Wood is good
but it doesn't have a long life span when incontact with dirt/water. Trex
( http://trex.com/ ) is a composit plastic/wood material used alot for
decking. They are making it in more sizes now. I use the 1/2 inch by 4inch
benderboards for edging alot. The dealer quoted me 20 years in the ground.
I hear that their are making 4x4's now, but I've havn't seen one yet.
