Your are looking at a specially designed solid copper SLUG ring, this ring is made from 99.9% pure copper and is designed to be placed around you outdoor plants to protect them form slugs that eat and destroy your plant.
Stop using dangerous chemicals and pesticides to keep slugs off your plants.
Slug simply do NOT like copper because of the materials anti-microbial qualities and how copper will create a mild electrical shock when the slug touches it because of the salt in there bodies.
Because these rings are made from solid copper they will last a life tome because copper does NOT rust or corrode and can easily be cleaned and used year after year.
This ring is designed to easily be placed in your gardens soil because the bottom edge is NOT hemmed so it is sharp and easily cuts and presses into your solid without the need for any tools.
The top edge has a hemmed edge that make it perfectly smooth and safe so no matter how hard you push down on the top edge while installing the ring in your garden you will never get cut and the hemmed edge also serves to make the ring perfectly round and extremely strong.
You will find a 5/16" wide bead rolled around the entire perimeter of the ring, this has been placed 1" down from the top edge and is designed to quickly and easily identify how deep your ring should be placed in the soil. When the ring is placed in the soil up to the bead you will have 3" of solid copper below ground and 1" above ground providing you excel any protection from slugs.
These rings also serve to keep water closer to your plants and keep the soil moist so you do not have to water as frequently.
